Existential Therapy


The Existential approach is a philosophical one, concerned with the way human beings are in the world. It approaches the totality of the living situation and attempts to address how a client relates to the ‘givens’ of life. Clients are encouraged to take stock of their situation, recognizing their possibilities and limitations. Clients bring narrations, thoughts and feelings and the therapist offers the space where these can be seen, clarified and understood, gaining enough knowledge of the self and the world, to live authentically.  Existential therapy encourages an openness to perception and experience, and attempts to help clients find meaning in their life and their struggles, to better shape their own life direction. Therapists aim to help clients create an increasingly comfortable space inside and outside themselves, supporting them in claiming responsibility for their lives and coming to terms with past, present, and future crises.
