Existential Analysis

Existential Analysis, Logotherapy

Existential Analysis helps clients to address emotional issues by taking responsibility for past decisions that caused emotional reactions to develop. The therapist will guide the client to accept fears, and equips the client with skills and actions to overcome obstacles.

The client will learn how to take control of their life direction and to design the course wisely. By creating a sense of liberation in the client, he or she can let go of negative emotions, and instead allow him or her to embrace a life full of curiosity and wonder. As a result, life becomes a journey of excitement that needs to be embraced and lived to the full.

Through focusing on the client's future choices, the therapist can help the client explore options and understand the implications of past choices or beliefs that brought about current circumstances. That can be used as a springboard for better introspection and keener insight into the self.

Logotherapy stems from the Greek word for logo, which means 'meaning'. The therapy is based on the theory that any wisdom on healing can be found in our spiritual or noetic dimension. We all possess the cure for any negative emotions, relationships and issues inside of our inner spirits. The approach was developed by Viktor Frankl whose theories were heavily influenced by his personal experiences of suffering and loss in Nazi concentration camps.


The therapist will apply Logotherapy by helping the client recognize that he or she is a unique spirit. This uniqueness is what we express through our beliefs, behaviours and lives.

Logotherapy helps people to move beyond their own negative beliefs and to pursue our desires in order to achieve satisfaction in life and fulfill our purposes. By changing our perceptions, we can see things differently and learn to accept what we can't control.
