Personalised Existentialism Therapy in Manchester

Expert support for your journey to find meaning and purpose, with a compassionate and understanding approach

Welcome to Jodie James Counselling Services, where I am dedicated to helping you explore life's deeper questions and discover your own unique path. As an experienced therapist in Manchester, I understand that each individual's journey is unique. That's why I tailor my therapeutic approach to suit your specific needs.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch and take the first step towards a happier, more fulfilled life. I look forward to working with you.

My Therapeutic Approach

I believe in the power of a personalised, client-centred approach to therapy. I understand that each individual's journey is unique, and I am committed to providing a tailored experience that respects your autonomy and expertise in your own life.


My therapeutic framework includes a Client-Centred Approach: I believe that you are the expert on your own life and experiences. My client-centred approach empowers you to take control of your healing process by providing guidance, support, and understanding. I blend this with Transactional Analysis (TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)  techniques to help you identify and change unhelpful patterns in your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that may be contributing to your existentialism-related symptoms.

Understanding Existentialism and Therapies


What is Existential Therapy?

Existential therapy is a philosophical approach to counselling that focuses on helping individuals explore life's deeper questions, such as the meaning of life, the nature of existence, personal responsibility, and self-identity. Existential therapy acknowledges that each person's journey is unique and encourages individuals to find their own path in life, guided by their values, beliefs, and experiences.


Therapeutic Framework for Existential Exploration

As an experienced therapist in existentialism, I utilise a client-centred approach to support your personal exploration. This humanistic therapy places you at the centre of your own journey, respecting your autonomy, individuality, and expertise on your own experiences. Together, we create a trusting and supportive therapeutic relationship where you can safely explore your existential concerns and questions.

Finding the Right Support for Your Existential Journey

Existential concerns are a natural part of the human experience, and finding the right therapeutic support is crucial for your well-being. At Jodie James Counselling Services, I am committed to creating a safe, supportive, and understanding environment where you can explore life's deeper questions and discover your own unique path. By utilising a variety of evidence-based therapeutic frameworks, I help you build resilience, enhance your well-being, and find meaning and purpose in your life.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Existential Therapy

How do I know if existential therapy is right for me?

Existential therapy can be beneficial for individuals who are grappling with questions of meaning, purpose, personal responsibility, or self-identity. If you find yourself struggling with these concerns or are seeking a deeper understanding of your place in the world, existential therapy may be an appropriate approach. Please reach out to me, and we can discuss your concerns and determine the most suitable course of action.

How long does existential therapy typically last?

The duration of existential therapy varies depending on each individual's unique circumstances, progress, and therapeutic goals. While some people may benefit from short-term therapy, others may require more extended support. As your therapist, I will work closely with you to assess your needs and adjust the therapy duration accordingly, ensuring you receive the most appropriate care.

How can you help me with my existential concerns?

As an experienced therapist specialising in existential therapy, I am committed to providing compassionate, personalised care to support your personal exploration. By utilising a range of evidence-based therapeutic frameworks and tailoring the approach to your specific needs, I aim to help you navigate life's deeper questions, develop effective coping strategies, and build resilience for a more fulfilling life.

Can existential therapy be provided online or over the phone?

Yes, I offer various modes of interaction to accommodate your needs and preferences. In addition to face-to-face sessions, I provide therapy via Zoom/Video call, telephone, and walking therapy. This flexibility allows you to access the support you need in a manner that is most comfortable and convenient for you.

What if I am not comfortable discussing certain topics?

Your comfort and safety are of utmost importance to me. As your therapist, I will never pressure you to disclose information that you are not ready to share. The therapeutic process is a collaborative effort, and we will work at a pace that feels comfortable for you. Our goal is to build trust and establish a safe space for you to explore your experiences and emotions when you feel ready.


Can you help family members or friends who are dealing with existential concerns?

Absolutely. Supporting a loved one grappling with existential questions can be challenging, and it is essential to care for your well-being as well.
