What is Existential Therapy?

Existential Therapy is a philosophical approach that explores the fundamental questions of human existence, such as the meaning of life, freedom, responsibility, and mortality. Therapists working in this modality help clients explore their own existence and subjective experiences. By examining their values, choices, and beliefs, individuals gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their purpose, often leading to a greater sense of authenticity and fulfillment.

Existential Therapy is used to address existential concerns, including feelings of meaninglessness, isolation, and mortality. It is beneficial for individuals experiencing existential crises, identity issues, and searching for purpose and direction in life. Existential Therapy can also help those coping with grief, trauma, and major life transitions, providing a framework for understanding and finding meaning in their experiences.
