This paper is wrote in the direction of identifying premises that led to the emergence of the first contemporary philosophical practices, given that in Romania there have been serie of oprelists for philosophy and his practice. Starting from the own conditions in which Romanian philosophers wrote and activated in the last century, we analyze some concerns in the field, in the sense of applying philosophical concepts in people’s life, other than through scientific writings. Concording with a new European current, appeared in Germany in the early 1980s, expanded in several countries around the world, regarding the emergence of philosophical counseling as a form of philosophy practice for the benefit of people, we present the concerns on this applied direction in Romania, and which can be considered as the directions to be followed for creating a new occupation for every person, not just those who have studied philosophy. This paper reveals the need to continue the process of regulating and recognizing a new profession, philosophical counseling, to different now from the current occupation of the philosopher and used to the specialists who form themselves in the new field of this philosophical practice.
