Existential Therapy

Existential therapy developed out of the philosophies of Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Kafka, Dostoevsky and Sartre. It is based of the belief that all people experience emotional and psychological difficulties (or intrapsychic conflict) due to their own interaction with certain conditions inherent with human existence. Rather than delve into the past, the existential approach looks at the here and now, exploring the human condition as a whole and what it means for the individual. An existential therapist will likely focus on free will, self-determination, and the search for meaning, emphasizing your capacity to make rational choices and develop your ultimate potential.
