Existential Psychotherapy

My approach to clinical practice is Existential Therapy.
Existential therapy looks at unhelpful assumptions with the aim of making us aware of our attitudes and intentions. It is about coming to terms with existence, about taking responsibility and about creating meaning for ourselves. Questions are alive; the truth is hidden in the paradox of opposites.

All of us at some point in our lives may become overwhelmed with our own particular and unique struggles. Existential thought takes the human condition as the focus of investigation and therapy focuses on the uniqueness of each individual's particular experience. Through the therapeutic relationship, existential practice creates an opportunity for clients to become aware of the challenges they are confronted with and thus re-evaluate their choices and paths in overcoming life’s emotional difficulties.

I have been trained as an Existential Psychotherapist and I hold an MA and an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy. I am registered with United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and I am a member of British Psychological Society (BPS) and Society of Existential Analysis (SEA).
