Professor Emmy van Deurzen is a philosopher and existential psychotherapist. Her application of philosophical ideas to psychology, psychotherapy, counselling and coaching has been instrumental in establishing the existential paradigm firmly in the UK and elsewhere in Europe and around the world. She founded the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling at Regent’s University, the Society for Existential Analysis and the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling at the Existential Academy in London, of which she continues to be Principal.

In this Masterclass with Professor Emmy van Deurzen we will learn the basis of Existential Psychotherapy. Existential therapy is a philosophical method of psychotherapy that focuses on life’s daily challenges as well as on the extraordinary troubles and traumas that change our lives. This includes working with the political, social and cultural pressures that people are under in an increasingly fast moving and global world. In the 21st century psychotherapy needs to adjust to the trials and tribulations of a new age where we are all bound together and are flooded with constant demands and duties as well as with vast amounts of new information all the time.

Existential therapy has an important role to play in widening and broadening our horizons, providing a platform for integration of different methods in a disciplined and rigorous fashion. It draws on phenomenology and in this way allows for an in depth re-examination of people’s worldviews, assumptions, values and beliefs, working with people’s sensations, emotions, thoughts and intuitions.
