Existential Therapy

Existential Therapy is based on the tenets of the philosophy of Existentialism. Existentialism promotes the belief that life has no inherent or intrinsic meaning and it is the individual who assigns meaning to it.

They key aspect of existential therapy is that it helps the person to focus on and take responsibility for their choices and decisions. As such, it is most successful in cases where the individual is open minded and searching for meaning, and is willing for a constructive and honest self evaluation.

What are the advantages of Existential Therapy?

Existential Therapy can help an individual in the following ways:

  • Lead a meaningful life
  • Live in the present
  • Come to terms with death
  • Embrace one’s choices and decisions
  • Feel empowered by the freedom to create one’s own path

Who can benefit from existential therapy?

Existential psychotherapy is an appropriate method for treating psychological and emotional dysfunctions arising from the deep questions of life such as meaninglessness, death or isolation. It is especially effective in helping patients with:

  • Addiction
  • Difficulty making good life choices
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Finding meaning to life
  • Building self awareness
  • Managing change
  • People with terminal illnesses

How does existential therapy help?

This therapy helps individuals find answers to some of life’s questions such as:

  • Who Am I?
  • What is the purpose of my life?
  • Why do people suffer?
  • What am I doing here?

Although existential psychotherapy acknowledges the importance of an individual’s past, it focuses more on his or her current state of mind. The therapy aims to free the person from his own limited thoughts and accept their own responsibility in shaping their life.

At Mindgram, we have expertise in existential psychotherapy along with a range of other psychotherapies. We work with our clients to understand their needs and identify the best form of treatment to help them lead a happy and fulfilling life.
