Existential Therapy

The goal of existential psychotherapy is to help clients gain a greater sense of meaning and purpose in their lives. This is accomplished through an examination of values and clarification of one’s personal life goals and direction. Existential work also deals with the difficult concept of choice. By freeing the client from the anxiety attached to decisions and choices, the client is then able to move more gracefully through the many problems and choices they face. Issues from death to loneliness and isolation are addressed in this work. Existential therapy provides a deeper analysis of one’s existence, which increases clarity, direction, and self-understanding.
