Existential Psychotherapy

There is much to be said about the philosophical basis of the existential approach, but this website is not the place for that.

Suffice it to say that 'living is a challenge', and it can be helpful to take the time to reflect and ponder on how you are living your life, whilst having a therapist alongside you to facilitate exploration, insight and hopefully greater understanding of your way of being in the world.

In my experience, existential concepts provide a very strong platform with which to identify and describe how each of us is in the world, and the ultimate issues we must all engage with: the challenges of living, of being in relation with others, the reality of death, and the uncertainty of most everything else.

This way of working gives you an opportunity to clarify and remind yourself what your values are, and to reflect upon how and to what extent they inspire your actions and ways of relating.

As an existential therapist I am fascinated by and willing to engage with all aspects of life, and our work together is a collaboration, where your issues and concerns, fears and struggles are our shared focus.
