Batya Yaniger is head trainer of the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy in Israel. She has been teaching courses on line, in Israel and in Istanbul for the past ten years. In addition, she has had fifteen years experience as a Logotherapist in private practice.
In the world today, people crave meaning and purpose.
There are those who climb the ladder of success and then wonder what it is all for, and there are those whose world has come crashing down on them. To be able to help either group, psychotherapists feel something is missing from their tool box.
Logotherapy completes the picture.
Logotherapy is more than a theory of psychology. It is a way of life that focuses on what makes life meaningful. We are most ourselves when we care about something beyond ourselves. There is always an ‘other’ to whom we are responsible.
Batya’s passion is to ignite in people a dialogue with life.
A dialogue implies two sides. In the experience of meaninglessness there is no dialogue, nothing holds value and nothing makes any sense. It does not matter if you have lived, and it does not matter if you die. Meaning, on the other hand, is personal and concrete. Life calls us to courage, calls us to compassion and calls us to authentic being. Viewed in this light, struggles and challenges are a call to action and a path to meaning.
Batya teaches a four part course that takes you through the steps of finding your own meaning and then gaining tools to help other people find theirs.

Meaning is measured in challenge, and the greater the challenge the greater the uncertainty. Realizing our dreams thus means embracing uncertainty ~ Albert Frantz
