Logotherapy – Dr Amanda White

Dr Amanda White   Quals: PhD, B Psych (Hons), B Beh Sc, DipH, MAPS.

Logotherapy: A counselling approach through which we emphasis our search for personal meaning. It is a type of existential analysis, which anticipates that we each experience inner conflict due to developing insight into the nature of our human existence. Such insight may revolve around mortality, freedom, responsibility, isolation, and purpose, for example.

Counselling Approach: The basis of logotherapy is that life has meaning in all circumstances, even the most miserable; our main motivation in living is our will to find meaning in life; we each have the freedom to find meaning in our acts, experiences, or at least meaning in the stand taken, should we be faced with unchangeable suffering. Creative self-expression, the diversity of experience, and conscious/chosen attitudes to circumstances form the underlying meaning triangle. The central tool of logotherapy is Socratic dialogue. Logotherapy emphasises positive psychological functioning and our resources for psychological healing (resources do not include materialism or hedonism, which are seen as potential barriers to meaning). It is not an approach which addresses psychopathology.
