Receiving increased attention over the past several years, existential psychotherapy has regained popularity due to its focus on choice, personal responsibility, and freedom. During sessions, patients learn about the importance of the present rather than concentrating on past experiences. Using phenomenology, existential psychologists enable clients to discover their own subjective selves and tailor their actions towards achieving that subjectivity.
