Rosemary Murray-Lachapelle, M.L.S., M.A.


Rosemary Murray-Lachapelle is a Jungian Analyst in private practice in Gatineau and Ottawa. A graduate of the training programme of the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts, she studied at the University of Toronto, the Université de Strasbourg, and Carleton University. Before becoming an analyst, she worked in universities and the federal government and travelled on assignment to a number of countries in West Africa and the Caribbean. This career provided a wonderful education in the motivation and complexity of human experience.

Mrs. Murray-Lachapelle loves the arts and has a penchant for languages, including ancient languages such as Old Babylonian and Latin. The holistic and creative aspects of Jung's therapeutic approach drew her to Jungian psychology. Its capacity to stimulate healing led her to become an analyst. She has come to focus on the re connection of consciousness to body, instinct, emotion, and imagination. In her thesis on the Black Madonna she explored one symbol for this development in the human psyche. Mrs. Murray-Lachapelle is a member of the International Association of Analytical Psychology, the Association of Jungian Psychoanalysts of Quebec, and a member and officer of the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts. Her work as analyst conforms to the ethical standards, codes, and norms of these organisations.
