RESIDUES IN THE ANALYST OF THE PATIENT'S SYMBIOTIC CONNECTION AT A SOMATIC LEVEL:
UNREPRESENTED STATES IN THE PATIENT AND ANALYST

Geraldine Godsil

This paper discusses the residues of a somatic countertransference that revealed its meaning several years after apparently successful analytic work had ended. Psychoanalytic and Jungian analytic ideas on primitive communication, dissociation and enactment are explored in the working through of a shared respiratory symptom between patient and analyst. Growth in the analyst was necessary so that the patient's communication at a somatic level could be understood. Bleger's concept that both the patient's and analyst's body are part of the setting was central in the working through.

Geraldine Godsil, is a training analyst and supervisor with the British Jungian Analytic Association. She has been Clinical Director of a London based organization providing brief therapy to employees of various companies and worked for several years in the NHS in Yorkshire. She taught and supervised in Estonia for five years. Geraldine has a particular interest in representation and the way dissociation operates at different levels in traumatic histories. Geraldine currently works in private practice in East London and has a particular interest in supervising difficult cases both here and abroad.
