Master's dissertation is devoted to study facilitation of self-exploration process by means of dream images. The process of self-exploration promotes personal growth, gives a person the opportunity to know himself, to gain integrity. Dream images can be used as a tool for self-understanding that is revealed to a person due to special conditions. In the theory and practice of the person-centered approach, there is currently no common approach to understanding what dreams are and how a person can use this experience in self-development process. We have developed a method that allows us to use dream images in facilitation of self-exploration process and conducted a study of what happens in facilitation of self-exploration process by means of dream images. The paper presents the results of the study and offers recommendations for further research. The theoretical significance of the study lies in the fact that it contributes to the development of ideas about dreams in context of personal growth, and the practical value is in development of the method of working with dream images in a person-centered approach.
