“The existential act, not the existential word.”

Working as a therapist in Cape Town has been of tremendous value to my trade. I was always a spectacle of being a therapist who gives “wordly” advice from the comfort of my armchair at home, and have integrated a great many learnings from my work at Hope House. Namely people, whether in 2A or at home, strive for human things. To experience love (and to be loved in return), to be better connected to those around them, to find an external object to aspire towards. More than this I am more aware of people’s realities. That people can’t afford to always face existential dilemmas head on as they are living each day under tyrannical conditions. But little has changed my mind to the fact that in spite of this, people are generous and positive at the core.
