This thesis explores how sound might be understood as image from a depth psychological perspective. Images, whether they are retrieved from memory, from dreams, or from daily experiences, have an immediacy that directly connects the therapist to the client's experience, offering a direct point of entry to the client's narrative. Sound images are considered to facilitate the connection to soul by penetrating beyond our psychological experience, carrying with them a resonant vibration that enters the body internally and externally. However, images that appear in the form of sound are often overlooked by both therapists and their clients. A hermeneutic approach was used to explore sound images. Clinical applications for working with sound images are discussed using several approaches within a Jungian framework. Therapeutic interventions from the imaginal approach (Hillman, 2004), the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) (Bonny, 1978), and Process Oriented Psychology (Mindell, 1985) are described to facilitate hearing the echoes that resonate deep within the psyche.
