Find 9 therapists practicing Existential analysis
The existential analysis is a psychotherapy approach which stands on the shoulders of the existential tradition of European philosophy. It’s a humanistic approach that through the analysis of existence helps an individual to find a way of living that is based on inner meaning.
It's the philosophical and scientific basis of logotherapy (founded by Viktor E. Frankl), which is a method of therapy and counselling that supports an individual in the quest for meaning. Experiences such as anxiety, depression, or alienation are not considered mental health disorders through the lens of existential analysis, rather they are seen as natural stages in human development and maturation. The goal of the treatment is to actualize a self-responsible, self-realized, and humane life. In the session, the focus is on phenomenological analysis of emotions as the centre of the experience, as well as examining the unique biographical narrative of an individual.
