Doing Counselling Psychology the Heideggerian Way (Report)
Introduction Each and every one of us has a philosophy of life (whether implicit or explicit), a framework, i.e. a basic conceptual structure, that allows us to make sense of the way we relate to the world. This framework allows us to give meaning to our lives, to make it coherent and manageable. As Howard (2001) notes ‘the philosophy we adopt provides the building blocks, and the underlying organisation, to the very manner in which we perceive and reflect’ (p.371) upon ourselves, others and the world.
