  1. Warm and Welcoming Atmosphere: To establish a foundation of trust and safety, I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment. I actively listen to you without judgment, ensuring that you feel heard and understood.

  2. Exploration of Core Life Issues: Depth-oriented therapy focuses on delving into the underlying causes and meanings behind your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. As your therapist, I will encourage you to explore your core life issues, such as existential concerns, identity, relationships, purpose, and the search for meaning.

In therapy, I will guide you in examining your beliefs, values, and assumptions about yourself and the world. Through open-ended questions, discussions, and introspective techniques, you will gain deeper insights into your inner world.

  4. Emphasis on Existential Themes: Existential themes, such as the nature of existence, freedom, responsibility, death, and the search for meaning, are central in this type of therapy. I will help you explore these existential concerns, offering guidance as you grapple with the profound questions and uncertainties of life.

  5. Mindfulness and Presence: Mindfulness practices are often incorporated into depth-oriented and existential therapy. I may guide you in cultivating present-moment awareness, helping you become more attuned to your thoughts, emotions, and sensations. This practice can deepen your understanding of yourself and increase your capacity for self-acceptance.

  6. Collaborative and Person-Centered Approach: I will work collaboratively with you, respecting your unique perspective and experiences. I will adapt the therapy to your specific needs, goals, and pace, ensuring that you feel empowered and actively involved in your own healing process.

  7. Uncovering Meaning and Purpose: A key aspect of depth-oriented and existential therapy is the exploration of meaning and purpose in life. I will support you in uncovering your personal values, passions, and aspirations. Together, you will explore ways to align your life with these meaningful pursuits, promoting a sense of fulfillment and authenticity.
