The journal or diary and psychotherapy have developed independently, although along parallel lines, throughout the twentieth century. Freud recognised the importance of the journal as a key to the psyche and Jungians have always asked their clients to keep dream logs. Besides its use by cognitive therapists as an aid to recovery, ‘Journalling’ is considered an effective lifelong tool in self-guidance for those who feel that they have the necessary resources within to act as their own counsellor.
