Existential Therapy WorkshopExistential Therapy Seminar

This one day seminar, taught by Mick Cooper, is available in Exeter. The seminar is appropriate for training and practising counsellors, psychotherapists, counselling psychologists and other mental health professionals.

Existential therapy is a diverse, vibrant, and wonderfully rich tapestry of understandings and methods that has the potential to make a valuable contribution to the work of any counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist. It is one of the oldest forms of therapy, yet still one of the most innovative and radical. Existential therapy is orientated around the development of a deep relational bond with the client, which allows the client to explore the most fundamental aspects of their existence. This includes questions like: ‘What is the meaning of my life?’ ‘What choices can I make?’ and ‘How do I face the limits of my circumstances?’ This seminar introduces participants to the basic principles of existential philosophy and therapy, and looks at how practitioners of all orientations can integrate these ideas and practices into their own work.

This one day seminar combines self-development exercises, theoretical input, practical exercises, and small and large group discussion.

By the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:
  • Understand the core principles of existential philosophy
  • Understand the principal aims and forms of existential counselling and psychotherapy
  • Apply existential understanding of freedom and choice to their therapeutic practice
  • Apply existential understanding of limitations to their therapeutic practice
  • Apply existential understandings of meaning and purpose to their therapeutic practice
