Our training is founded upon the existential principle of the ultimate unfathomability of the question of the meaning of being. Human experience is far too complex to be explained by theory. Existential psychotherapy embraces this complexity and takes a philosophical approach, asking what it means to be human.

Combining rigorous academic study, of primary existential texts and experiential encounter exercises, you will develop a philosophical attitude and acquire a new vocabulary for contemplating human experience. Your learning will go beyond cognitive and rational understanding of yourself in relation to others towards a changed embodied way of making sense of experience.

This changed and more open understanding prepares you to connect the other in their ambiguity and complexity and together begin a healing process of deep exploration.

You will engage in a range of group seminars designed to help you question your own beliefs, values and principles. You will need to develop courage, openness and a willingness to be challenged by others in the group.

Expanding your horizons, this training will help you to work effectively and ethically with some of society's most isolated and vulnerable individuals.

This programme forms the final two years of training to become a UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) registered existential psychotherapist. You must have already completed an MA in Psychotherapy & Counselling, or an equivalent master's-level professional training, in order to be accepted onto the programme.
