WHO WE ARE

FETE is a charitable organisation for Existential Psychotherapists in Europe. It aims to represent existential therapy in Europe and was established as a CIO, approved by the United Kingdom Charities Commission in 2017.

FETE was first conceived of in May 2015.  During the first World Congress of Existential Therapy in London, a large interest group of congress delegates representing several European countries held an open meeting on 16 May, during which they discussed possible ways of collaboration and expressed the desire and need to form a European Federation representing and supporting Existential Therapists. During this meeting, individuals from 18 different countries volunteered to take on responsibility for developing this idea further by forming a working group towards creating a constitution and legal framework for the proposed European Federation.
