Nancy Hakim Dowek
My initial interest in Existential therapy was informed by my diverse personal and professional experiences. Throughout the years I have explored diverse ways of supporting my clients holistically, always looking to help them improve their physical, emotional and spiritual balance. All this exploration culminated in my discovery of Existential therapy as it encapsulates all my core beliefs about the therapeutic process and the powerful therapeutic connection between psychology and philosophy.
Through respectfully exploring and supporting an open and honest dialogue, I hope to create with you a safe space in which you can be accompanied along a journey of discovering and addressing the issues which concern you. This provides an opportunity to reassess and understand your life experience, and make sense of the present in order to lay the foundations for the future life which you desire.
