This article investigates a recent attempt to apply philosophy within the discipline of psychotherapy and to investigate the somewhat undefined realm of philosophical counselling. After introducing the claims of this interdisciplinary exercise and after addressing the problems involved in crossing the boundaries between philosophy and psychotherapy, the article elaborates on Alex Howard's (2000) [<i>Philosophy for counselling and psychotherapy: Pythagoras to post-modernism</i>. London : Macmillan] attempt to make explicit use of philosophy in psychotherapy, using his interpretation and application of Heraclitus' philosophy as case study.
