Existential concerns have become a decisive factor in how we feel today. Not only does meaning in life play a crucial role in regard to our life satisfaction. Our precarious planetary situation undermines this meaning, as well as it erodes our basic trust in life. The way we relate to our existential givens also plays a major role in our psychological suffering as well as in our growth. Counselors and therapist feel hesitant when existential themes become explicit. As Rogers already suggested, it is high time to explore the existential layer more thoroughly and to facilitate existential processes in therapy explicitly. This is precisely the mission of this being-centered or experiential-existential approach.
The tPeP (Journal Person-centered experiential Psychotherapy) is the scientific journal for Dutch and Flemish psychotherapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists, that work from, or are interested in a client-centered perspective.
