Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling

Question YOURSELF. Question Your LIFE. Question Your POSSIBILITIES.

My method of practice is based upon the existential tradition, which takes a philosophical approach to psychotherapy and counselling. Existential therapy can clarify your understanding of yourself and your life circumstances. It may also assist you through a specific life struggle in becoming better at handling difficult relationships/situations. Together we tend to explore what matters most deeply to you in life and tackle what is most problematic.

One of the objectives is for you to be honest with yourself and in tune with both your limitations and possibilities. By paying attention to what is of most concern to you personally, we'll aim to bring YOUR LIFE BACK into harmony WITH YOUR ASPIRATIONS so that you'll become more able to live your life to the full. This means understanding where you are at before establishing where you want to go and how you might get there.
