Welcome to the Existential Academy!

The Existential Academy is a Community Interest company, based in West Hampstead in London and is the heart of the existential psychotherapy community.

We offer studies, training and further education in psychotherapy and in particular in existential psychotherapy. Our approach draws on a long philosophical tradition, but brings this up to date applying it in a practical way to enable people to achieve greater wellbeing despite the demands, challenges, and frustrations of contemporary life.

The Existential Academy provides a yearlong foundation course designed to be closely integrated with the training courses provided by the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling.
