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 course will act as an introduction to mediation and the special transferable mediation listening and ‘being-with’ skills.
