Aim is to show the possible verbalization of the concept of С. G. Jung “individuation” through phraseological units (PhU) of the English language that make up the semantic microfields with the archisema “individuation”.

Methotology taken in the study are the descriptive method and method of analysis of the semantic field, stand out and are characterized, through PhU, microfield with the archisema “individuation”, which is a reflection of the process of unlocking the potential of personal development and self-realization.

Results. For the first time, the authors offer PhU, the semantic content of which contributes to a deeper and more multifaceted disclosure of the Jung concept of individuation.

Research implications. An analysis of Jung’s concept of “individualization” conducted through the use of PhU in English, selected by a continuous sample to describe this concept, showed that this approach to the study of personality and its development is one of the ways in a more complete and deeper study of it. In addition, the study contributes to further work on the solution of the current problems of modern science on the categorization of knowledge about the structure of the personality through linguistic knowledge.
