Briefly describe humanistic-existential psychotherapy and the second approach you selected. Humanistic-existential psychotherapy is a type of psychological treatment that emphasizes the individual’s subjective experience and personal responsibility. It is based on the belief that people have the inherent capacity to grow and develop, and that this growth is facilitated through self-exploration and self-discovery.

Humanistic-existential psychotherapy is often focused on helping individuals to understand and accept their own mortality, and to find meaning and purpose in their lives. It is characterized by a non-judgmental, empathetic, and accepting approach, and seeks to create a safe and supportive environment for self-exploration and growth.

In humanistic-existential psychotherapy, the therapist may use a variety of techniques and approaches, including reflection, questioning, and active listening, to help the individual to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The therapist may also help the individual to identify and challenge any limiting beliefs or patterns of thinking that may be holding them back from reaching their full potential.
Humanistic-existential psychotherapy is a holistic and person-centered approach that seeks to help individuals to understand and accept themselves and their place in the world, and to find meaning and purpose in their lives. It is focused on empowering individuals to take control of their own lives and to grow and develop in a way that is authentic and meaningful to them.
