Event description

Description

Existential therapy is a diverse, vibrant, and wonderfully rich tapestry of understandings and methods that have the potential to make a valuable contribution to the work of any counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist. It is one of the oldest forms of therapy, yet still one of the most innovative and radical.

Existential therapy is orientated around the development of a deep relational bond with the client, which allows the client to explore the most fundamental aspects of their existence. This includes questions like: ‘What is the meaning of my life?’, ‘What choices can I make?’ and ‘How do I face the limits of my circumstances?’

This workshop introduces participants to the basic principles of existential philosophy and therapy and looks at how practitioners of all orientations can integrate these ideas and practices into their own work.

This workshop is appropriate for training and practising counsellors, psychotherapists, counselling psychologists and other mental health professionals.
