An Online Workshop
Existential World Congress, Athens, Greece

Existential-Humanistic Institute Europe!
EHI Europe promotes the development of humanistic existential therapists and advocates for a change in paradigm in the way we view and approach therapy. With training and making use of therapeutic presence we look to solidify the basis of a true therapeutic encounter. We consider the therapist-client bond to be an essential part of our work, irrespective of the therapist’s orientation, and a prerequisite to any technique used in therapy.
