Existential psychologists help by clearing space for you to discover who you are and who you want to be. Existential therapy will help you overcome the common difficulties and challenges that prevent you from feeling like you can be “fully yourself”. Existential psychotherapists look at all aspects of your life and your story, including your past, present, and your hopes for your future. And the common thread that existential psychologists share is that they believe in your ability to move forward in a direction of your own choosing.
Existential psychologists also help you work through some of the toughest but most universal issues that we as people face:
- Feeling isolated,
- Feeling like your life lacks significant meaning,
- Feeling like time and life are passing you by,
- Feeling like you can’t control anything,
- Feeling like you are responsible for making everyone happy.
Existential therapists help you examine these challenges in a caring and supportive way, thereby bringing you into harmony with your authentic self.
Existential psychotherapy is considered to be one of the depth therapies, as it looks to understand and interact with you as a whole person: past, present, and future. Ultimately, people seeking existential psychotherapy are looking to feel more present in their everyday lives and feel clear and empowered about where their lives are going.
