Course content

The Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy (ADEP) provides specialist psychotherapy training emphasising the challenges, innovations and re-interpretations of the therapeutic encounter.

In grappling with existential philosophy, the course balances comprehension of what makes sense within the rational realm with apprehension of the unfathomable mystery of being within the embodied realm.

The course will prepare you for advanced professional work in both private and institutional practice. Successful completion will bring eligibility for registration with the appropriate professional bodies.
