Existential Coaching stems from both Existential Psychotherapy and traditional coaching approaches.
Existential coaching acknowledges that each client has a completely subjective experience and therefore we cannot simply rely on applying rules, theories or frameworks. Instead, the practitioner tries to elucidate what the client is experiencing, how they make sense of their world, and what they think is important. This is done through a process called 'phenomenlogy'.
Existential coaching does not seek to solve, fix or label anything. Instead it recognises that human life is fluid, changing and full of challenges. It focusses instead on accepting those challenges, and empowering clients through acknowledging their freedom to choose, take responsibility for the things within their control, tolerate the hard stuff, develop resilience, and create their own meaning.
