So what is existential therapy? Existential therapy is a philosophical approach to counselling that is supportive and collaborative. The here and now is a primary importance in the therapeutic relationship. The counsellor will walk along side you while you examine being-in-the-world, relationships, meaning making, suffering, relatedness, flexibility, freedom, life and death.
Existential therapy aims to generate exploration to these questions : Who am I?' What is my purpose in life?' Am I free ?" How do I go about dealing with my own mortality? Does my existence have meaning?' How shall I live?' ( Craig, et al., 2019 p.2). Lets work together to explore your lived experiences in a open and honesty way.
