An introduction to existential therapy
COVID-19: All of my workshops will be adapted to keep people as safe as possible. This may mean smaller group sizes, and we will comply with social distancing throughout.
This brief introduction will look at existential ideas. We will explore how they can be applied in practice, and what they might mean in terms of your work and the theoretical lens that you lean towards.
All of my training is experiential and we will draw on your own experiences and thoughts as a way of examining the key ideas within existential therapy.
Existential counselling draws ideas from the philosophy that shares the same name (funnily enough!). It offers a framework for understanding human motivation, growth and the inevitable sense of ‘stuckness’ and anxiety that we all experience as human beings.
Less a structured, prescriptive model, the approach instead draws from several fundamental philosophical beliefs to form a lens through which we can, to the best of our ability, make sense of our existence.
This brief introduction will also look at how the ideas can be applied in practice and what they might mean in terms of your work and the theoretical lens that you lean towards.
