Existential Therapy


Existential therapy is rooted in existential philosophy, which is concerned with what it means to exist and to be human. It is a practical, collaborative and relational approach which sheds light on how we come to choose and perpetuate our own unique way of navigating life and relationships, and the difficulties this sometimes brings.

Existential therapy places special emphasis on cultivating a caring, supportive yet challenging relationship between therapist and client, and recognises the vital role this relationship plays in the outcome of therapy. It is a non-directive approach: existential therapy does not involve homework or instructions, but you are invited to take a curious and open-minded attitude to yourself and to life so that you become more aware of your inner process and your way of relating to others. Existential therapy brings to light any tensions, contradictions or incongruence in your way of being, and helps you to exercise your own freedom and responsibility, identifying where change is possible (if change is what you want), and finding acceptance towards what cannot be changed.
