Existential Therapy

Existential therapy is a powerful approach which embraces human potential, while remaining a realistic approach through its recognition of human limitation. Existential therapy focuses on the development of a patient self-awareness by looking deeply into the issues of our aloneness, meaninglessness, and mortality. The therapist emphasizes the patient ability to freely make choices in the present, not under the influence of deterministic aspects or past conditioning. Existential therapists have their own unique views about human nature, mental dysfunction, wellness, and therapeutic techniques. Existential therapy is not a therapy for living but its the therapy for existence. Existential therapists have their own unique views about human nature, mental dysfunction, wellness, and therapeutic techniques. Existential therapy may be used most effectively when a client is able to access emotional experiences or when obstacles must be overcome to facilitate a client's entry into or continuation of recovery.

  • Taking responsibility for decisions.
  • Living in the present:the goal is to get the person to believe to experience lifeand to live more fully in each moment.
