Existential Psychotherapy & Counselling at Harley Therapy™ London

Do you have an anxious feeling that you are missing the point of your life?  

Life can be a challenge that leaves you asking overwhelming questions. Who am I, and what is the reason for my existence? Why do I feel so alone? Should I be doing something more important with my time?

Existential psychotherapy helps you find answers for these worries, and aims to leave you feeling calmer, with new confidence that you can make decisions that are right for you.  

What is Existential psychotherapy and how does it work?

Existential psychotherapy believes that anxiety and depression often stem from feeling confused about the meaning and purpose of our lives.

So unlike other forms of talk therapy that turn to psychology and medicine for answers to wellbeing, existential psychotherapy looks to philosophy. This perspective means you can move beyond just your thoughts and personal history to a larger context of the world itself, and how you fit within it.

With this broader way of seeing, you can gain clarity on who you really are - what your real beliefs and values are, how you reached the place you are in today, and where you are heading. And you can begin to move towards a life that feels inspiring to you, that you want to be living, and where you feel connected to both yourself and others.

What issues can Existential therapy help me with?

Existential therapy can help with issues like the following:

  • depression and anxiety
  • lack of identity or identity crisis
  • loneliness and disconnection
  • relationship issues
  • addictions and eating disorders
  • low self-esteem and social anxiety
  • lack of focus
  • troubles moving forward in life
