Introductory Seminar 1 - Vancouver, BC

  • Vancouver, BC, V5N 4B9 Canada (map)

EAC is starting a new Counselling / Psychotherapy Vancouver training group in late autumn 2019 or early 2020. Grounded in the work of Dr. Viktor Frankl, EA is a phenomenological and person-centred approach to psychotherapy that has been further elaborated by Dr. Alfried Längle. The EA training combines didactic and experiential methods, and emphasizes the development of the person of the therapist.

Our Introductory Seminars are ideal for:

– Professional development and/or as a gateway to the official training program for becoming an

   Existential Counsellor/Analyst (with the EA Society of Canada affiliate of GLE International).

– To join an upcoming Vancouver cohort (October 2019 or not till January 2020).
