THE VIENNESE SCHOOL
OF EXISTENTIAL ANALYSIS
The Viennese School of Existential Analysis is finally bringing its pioneering work in psychotherapy to London after achieving remarkable success around the world. Our training has been running for many years at universities across continental Europe, and both North and South America. From November 2019, for the first time, this unique programme of personal and professional development will be available in the United Kingdom.
WHY UNDERTAKE A TRAINING IN EXISTENTIAL ANALYSIS?
To find more meaning and fulfilment in your personal life.
To learn about the structure of existence: how it is built and how life functions.
To develop mindfulness and an attitude of openness to yourself and the world.
To gain greater understanding of psychological disorders and their origin in the fundamentals of existence.
To learn more about meaning and meaning-related issues, for yourself and others.
To become qualified and certified to practise counselling, psychotherapy and coaching in the UK and abroad.
To experience significant personal growth while developing professional excellence.
If you have ever wondered whether you fully own your life or whether your life owns you, then you might want to consider embarking on this ground-breaking training that brings together philosophy, psychotherapy and spirituality through a scientific methodology developed by some of the greatest minds in the field. Existential Analysis is not only a theory and practice of therapeutic work; it is also a way of being. Studying Existential Analysis is often a life-changing experience for our students.
Our training programme focuses on you as an individual, building your self-awareness and your resilience, while also training you to become fully qualified to offer this service to others.
WHAT IS EXISTENTIAL ANALYSIS?
Our human existence is very much shaped by our ability to make authentic decisions while being fully conscious of both our freedom to make choices and our responsibility. Existential Analysis can be described as a phenomenological and person-oriented psychotherapy, which aims to guide individuals towards leading their life more freely and authentically. It supports them in coming to terms with their own emotions and behaviours, while living more in line with their ‘inner consent’ and with greater freedom and awareness. The main goal of Existential Analysis is to see a person in their core essence, assisting them to find meaning and fulfilment, and to live in harmony with their values.
WHO IS DR ALFRIED LAENGLE?
Austria is well known as the birthplace of psychotherapy, beginning with Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis, focused on the ‘will to pleasure’, and continuing with Alfred Adler's individual psychology, focused on the ‘will to power’. Viktor Frankl’s logotherapy, focused on the ‘will to meaning’, later became known as the third Viennese school of psychotherapy. Austrian psychotherapist, clinical psychologist and existential analyst, Dr. Alfried Laengle, was a favoured student of Viktor Frankl and went on to work closely with him for many years as both a colleague and a friend. It was Frankl who founded the work of Existential Analysis and Logotherapy, but Laengle went on to make important scientific developments in the field, practically ‘taking the reins’ of Frankl’s work after his death in 1997. Existential Analysis is now viewed as one of the most influential phenomenological approaches to psychotherapy.
Alfried Laengle has received several awards and honours for his work, both in Austria and further afield. He has run a private therapy practice in Vienna since 1982 and is a regular lecturer and speaker at universities and other institutions in Austria, Canada, Russia, Chile and Argentina. He is the author of several books and a large number of scientific articles about Existential Analysis. We are very much looking forward to welcoming Dr. Laengle to London as the principal teacher and trainer on our upcoming diploma programme.
