Logotherapy aims to actualise the human spirit, that uniquely human capacity to take a stand, to make a decision, even during the most difficult life circumstances.

Viktor Frankl

Frankl’s work as a psychiatrist led him to believe that at least 20% of psychiatric illness presenting at his clinic was due to frustration with the human search for meaning in life.


We  recommend members study Logotherapy in depth. Logotherapy is an adjunct therapy and is a qualification additional to your professional area of expertise.
