Existential psychotherapy, though it may sound technical and perhaps even intimidating, is really nothing of the sort. It is a therapy based on Existential Philosophy which is the philosophy that explores what it means to be human, what it means to ‘be’. What are the things in life we all struggle with, each in our uniqueness? How do we cope with our ability to make choices in life?
In a time where science rules supreme, medicine in particular, the existential approach offers a non-medical way forward. I seek to help you to explore your world, your struggles and your choices.
It is an oft held belief that we know ourselves well and that we know what we’re feeling, however, my experience and that of my clients has shown me again and again that we are often the last to know what we’re feeling. A confidential space with a professional like myself can be of immense value in revealing and exploring those feelings and uncovering the beliefs and values, often deeply held, that inform them.
Whether it is the loss of a loved one that you find yourself unable to move on from, a traumatic experience in your past that continues to haunt you, if you feel trapped in a life not of your choosing or are facing any other struggle that seems to be an inescapable part of being human, I believe I can help you open up your world and consequently, your choices.
