"Philosophical counseling" is, simply, the application of philosophical methods -- e.g., argument analysis, conceptual analysis, critical thinking generally -- to personal and emotional challenges. Feelings result from our beliefs, and unpleasant feelings often result from beliefs that are irrational and worthy of rejection. A philosophical counselor can help people see this and reconstruct and practice new, better ways of reasoning and responding to the world, thinking about one's own self and relating with others. I am certified in "Logical-Based Therapy," which is form of philosophical counseling that is a philosophically-infused version of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CTB) or Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT).
