Barbara Hannah (2 August 1891 – September 1986) was born in England. She is most well known for her association with Carl Gustav Jung whom she joined in 1929 in Zurich[1] and remained so until her death.

Hannah was close friends with Swiss Jungian psychologist Marie-Louise von Franz, to whom she was introduced by Jung. He encouraged the younger von Franz to live with her, stating that "the real reason you should live together is that your chief interest will be analysis and analysts should not live alone."[2] They became lifelong friends.[3]

She wrote a biography of Jung entitled "Jung, His Life and Work: A Biographical Memoir." She also practised as psychotherapist and served as lecturer at the C.G. Jung Institute.[4]
