Existential psychotherapy is a philosophical and psychological approach that explores the fundamental questions of human existence, such as meaning, purpose, freedom, and mortality. This therapy focuses on helping individuals confront their anxieties and uncertainties in order to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their values. Therapists using this approach encourage clients to explore their personal experiences, beliefs, and choices. By engaging in these discussions, individuals often gain insight into their authentic selves, find clarity in their life direction, and come to terms with their own mortality. Existential psychotherapy can be particularly helpful for those who are grappling with questions of identity, purpose, and the nature of life.
