Psychotherapeutic Approach

I have trained in the Existential phenomenological approach to psychotherapy. Nevertheless, in my work I combine elements from different psychotherapeutic approaches in a manner that addresses and responds to the unique needs and difficulties of each person.

Existential phenomenological therapy is interested in exploring how we experience existential givens such as: death, embodiment, meaninglessness, choice and responsibility and what meanings we attach to them.  It is also concerned with understanding how these meanings shape our sense of  reality.  Along the same lines, psychological difficulties and distress are viewed in terms of meaning and as a consequence of the stance that we acquire towards a particular experience.  By looking into our stance and becoming more aware of it we can make more conscious and informed choices in life.
