What is Existential Psychotherapy?

Existential Psychotherapy will encourage you to face your problems. The existentialist belief is that life has no essential or predetermined meaning—you’re entirely free and ultimately responsible, so your sense of purpose has to be found or created.

Existential Psychotherapy can help with:
  • Exploring and gaining a deeper understanding of your life.
  • Finding meaning by facing questions related to the purpose of life or examining personal values, beliefs and goals.
  • Addressing existential anxiety and depression by understanding underlying emotions and concerns
  • Exploring concepts of freedom and responsibility when you’re feeling stuck or overwhelmed by choices and decision-making
  • Feelings of disconnect from yourself or how you relate with others
  • Self-reflection and realizing your authentic sense of self or identity
  • Establishing more meaningful and committed connections or relationships
  • Confronting mortality or finding greater appreciation for life and death-related anxieties
  • Navigating life transitions, fostering personal growth and greater resilience through change
  • Spiritual exploration, philosophical reflection and contemplation over life’s big questions

How does Existential Psychotherapy work at Bliss?
  1. At Bliss, we’re all about making your therapy experience as unique as you are. We’ll start things off by pairing you with a therapist, where you really connect and feel it “click.” When you find the right match, you’ll just know.
  2. Then, you’ll get started with your initial session. During this appointment (virtual or in person – the choice is yours!), you will share why you’ve decided to start therapy. You’ll leave with a clearer picture of who you are and a sharper awareness of what might be tripping you up.
  3. From there, you and your therapist will carve out a personalized path to more peace and understanding. After each session, you’ll leave with more insights into your underlying emotions or concerns and the confidence to take the tools you’ve gained in therapy out into the real world.
  4. Sometimes, unpacking existential concerns can shed light on deeper issues. Your therapist is there to help you navigate through any obstacles you encounter, clearing the way so you can live a blissful life free from the baggage of unresolved questions. It’s all about guiding you back home, to yourself, so that you can connect more deeply and live a more meaningful existence.
