Qualifications

My Masters degree (M.A) is in existential psychotherapy and counselling.  I have additional training in groupwork, clinical supervision and trauma counselling.

Existential psychotherapy is part of the humanistic approach. It aims to help you find your own ways of coming to terms with previous and current difficulties in your life.

The emphasis is on people developing the skills to be self-reflective, take responsibility for their behaviour, increase understanding of their personal beliefs and values, aid psychological and emotional maturity and learn
how to cope with the challenges of life more effectively, by accepting what cannot be changed and addressing what can be. This philosophical approach has a focus on relationships people have with themselves, others and life in general.

If you are interested in knowing more about existential therapy, the authors Emmy van Deurzen, Ernesto Spinelli and Irvin Yalom write extensively on the subject.
