Therapists specialising in Existential

Existential

Based on the principles of the existential movement popularized by philosophers such as Heidegger, Dostoevsky, Kafka, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and Sartre, existential therapy proposes that mental conflicts arise from an individual’s concern with the “givens” of human existence. These include the inevitability of death, freedom, existential isolation, and meaninglessness. Existential therapy does not focus on the past and instead works to empower the individual to take responsibility for their decisions and create the present and future they want. Existential therapy is most beneficial for clients who view their problems as challenges of living, rather than mental illness symptoms.
