The overall purpose of existential therapy is to allow clients to explore their lived experience honestly, openly and comprehensively. Through this spontaneous, collaborative process of discovery, clients are helped to gain a clearer sense of their experiences and the subjective meanings they may hold. Fully engaging in this supportive, explorative, challenging process can help clients come to terms with themselves and how they relate to others. Consequently, it can also encourage them to choose ways of being in the present and future that they, themselves, identify as more deeply satisfying, meaningful and authentic.
We do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.
Existential psychotherapy strives to empower and place the client and his or her life choices at the centre of the therapeutic process. Whilst I do include some psychodynamic, relational, schema and attachment based and cognitive behavioural approaches, I fundamentally work phenomenologically, which means that the client's subjective experience is of primary importance.
