Since 1981, Achenbach opened the first philosophical practice in Germany, the philosophical practice became more and more important. The philosophical counselor is a listener, understander, thinker, by asking the client to be thought out solutions together, challenged previous views, and other points of view considers the problem of her position. As a “tool” is used to advise the philosopher, the knowledge and ability to empathize with different world views.
I am who I am? What can I do? What can I hope? I live for myself, or I live for others? Is life, the life of the standard, or is there more? Are not we happier when we know what we are living? In philosophical counseling, practice sets you apart with the philosophy of the client, his feelings, his truths, thoughts. It takes on as it is, we think with him after, to find solutions. Philosophical Practice is the practice of applying ideas, concepts, theories in the reality of life. Philosophical counseling is NOT psychotherapy! There will be no advice given and the client does not change in his behavior, not pushed in one direction. The knowledge about the world is called into question. Philosophical Practice is understood as a reflection of the self-reference and relation to the world of the client.The fear and anxiety take in today’s society, more and more out of hand. But why? What are we afraid?
Things do not worry even the people, but the idea of things (Epictetus). That really means nothing, as people are suffering, because you see things the way they see it.
Due to the critical questioning of what has been new and different perspectives and strategies are visible and tangible. In philosophy, no dust in drawers, no, it will all be brought out, by speaking and joint reflection. It’s a good thing that makes you think about everything, because if you think you will ponder solutions to all problems. People do not swim against the stream, never find the source of life. People who do what the mass of mankind is doing, will gain no real spiritual satisfaction. No is important to say than to say yes. Man can only be perfectly happy if he has found his calling, that is practiced in this.
