Prof. Ernesto Spinelli

Ernesto’s seminars, lectures and writings have earned him an international reputation as an innovative theoretician and practitioner in contemporary existential psychotherapy and psychology.

My interests in existential theory and the demystification of psychotherapy have influenced me in extending psychotherapeutic insight into the field of coaching.

As well as maintaining a private practice as a psychotherapist, executive coach and supervisor, Ernesto is the founder of ES Associates, a faculty member of the i-coach academy and Senior Fellow at the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling, Regents College. Having recently published a new edition of his bestselling book, The Interpreted World: an introduction to phenomenological psychology (Sage, 2005), Ernesto is currently completing a practice-focused book on existential psychotherapy and is in the early stages of writing a text entirely devoted to the theory and practice of existential coaching.

Ernesto is a Founding Member of the BPS Special Group in Coaching Psychology and is on the editorial board of the International Coaching Psychology Review.
