A Concise Introduction to Existential Counselling is just that: a brief and accessible pocket guide to the underlying theory & practice of the existential approach.

– Provides a short history of the existential tradition

– Addresses the significance of existential thought in the wider world
This book will be the perfect companion to new trainees looking to embark on their path to thinking and practicing existentially.
