Existential Therapy

Existential therapy is based around four ‘givens’ of existence:

  • death
  • freedom
  • isolation and
  • lack of meaning.

The emphasis is on the choices you can make in the present and future. Your counsellor will help you notice how you have answered life's questions in the past.

You can overcome your anxieties and instead view life as moments in which you can experience freedom.
