Welcome to Centre for
Existential Practice



Welcome to Centre for Existential Practice, a unique Australian arm of existentialism and lifelong learning. Each year, CEP offers you a broad range of Training and Professional Development opportunities. Our events are grounded in existential and phenomenological philosophy and encompass themes that can be incorporated into any mode of practice. We offer you a highly experiential learning environment and the intimacy that comes from strictly limited numbers. We welcome psychotherapists, counsellors, coaches, psychologists, social workers, supervisors and group leaders across all modalities.

Man is ready and willing to shoulder any suffering as soon and as long as he can see a meaning in it

– Frankl

Most people are subjective toward themselves and objective toward all others, frightfully objective sometimes - but the task is precisely to be objective toward oneself and subjective toward all others

– Kierkegaard

When we are dealing with human beings, no truth has reality by itself;
it is always dependent upon the reality of the immediate relationship
