The Existential Academy is a Community Interest Company, based in West Hampstead in London.  It  is a place for study, training and education in relation to human existence.  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 well being despite the demands, challenges, and frustrations of contemporary life.

Our focus is on psychotherapy, counselling and coaching: helping people reach more of their goals and yet feel less over-stretched doing so.  We do this by focussing on what really matters to each person, and by using our--and their-- knowledge of where longer-lasting well being can be found. 

The Existential Academy provides short courses for interested members of the public, continuing professional development for established professionals and our flagship introductory course which has been designed to be closely integrated with the training courses provided by the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling.

This 5-day course will outline traditional coaching frameworks, essential skills and tools for existential coaching.
This course will look at working with clients anticipating a loss e.g. in the form of illness or those who experience a sudden loss e.g. fire, accident, suicide.
How relevant is the idea of ‘soul’ in an increasingly digital and performance based environment? How does modern man understand the idea of something within but also without, knowable and yet unknowable?
This workshop will examine the emotional and psychological aspects of weight loss. The workshop will cover a range of different perspectives and combine this with practical strategies and techniques.
