Existential Psychotherapy - Advanced Diploma


Course Description

The Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy (ADEP) provides specialist psychotherapy training emphasising the challenges, innovations and re-interpretations of the therapeutic encounter.

The course will prepare you for advanced professional work in both private and institutional practice. Successful completion will bring eligibility for registration with the appropriate professional bodies.

Please note that we are not able to sponsor students on this programme for a Tier 4 visa.

Why should I choose this programme?

Existential psychotherapy is a professional, down-to-earth form of therapy which responds to an inner prompt to find out who we really are and how we really want to live.

The emphasis is on the question of existence rather than just cognitive notions of self, experience rather than psychological theories.

The course contrasts comprehension of existential philosophy within the rational realm and apprehension of philosophy as practice within the phenomenal realm of immediate experience.

You will learn to relate and apply the philosophical underpinnings of existential psychotherapy to your life and work with clients.
