Existential therapy asks what it means being a human and focuses on Self-awareness. Existential therapy is about helping us see the big picture and to see our self-compared to others. In this part I would ask how you view others around you. Existential therapy also talks about what freedom is and believes that not everybody wants to be free. Freedom and responsibility are linked together, I am free, but I make choices and the choices I make turns into responsibilities. I am responsible for my choices and my choices can create my anxiety. Some choices we make can control part of our life and cause problems at work and problems in personal relationship.
Existential therapy is more concerned with the bigger picture. Solving the bigger problems will in turn answer the smaller problems, the small problem may be additions, the big problem may be chronic depression they have been dealing with for most of their life.
Therapy will teach YOU to trust yourself more
to solve your own problems.
Existential therapists will ask questions to the client to help them solve their problems like what is it you want to do? What are the feelings you want to feel? What is the meaning of YOUR life? What things in your life do you want to accomplish. With the answers the client gives the therapist; the therapist then will simply ask how are we going to solve these goals.
