<p>Existential psychotherapy is a philosophical method of therapy
that operates on the belief that inner conflict within a person is due
to that individual's confrontation with the givens of existence.<a href="">[1]</a>; These givens, as noted by <a href="">Irvin D. Yalom</a>, are: the inevitability of <a href="">death</a>;, <a href="">freedom</a>; and its attendant <a href="">responsibility</a>;, existential <a href="">isolation</a>; (referring to <a href="">Phenomenology</a>;), and finally <a href="">meaninglessness</a>;.
These four givens, also referred to as ultimate concerns, form the body
of existential psychotherapy and compose the framework in which a
therapist conceptualizes a client's problem in order to develop a method
of treatment.<br></p><p>- <a href="">Existential Psychology - Wikipedia</a></p>
