About Gestalt Therapy

Gestalt Therapy is a body oriented psychotherapy; it is relational and humanistic. 'Gestalt' is a German word which means 'a Whole' or 'a completion that is greater than the sum of it’s parts'.

Gestalt Therapy's objective is to support the client in his/her quest to become more fully and creatively alive, to become free from the blocks and unfinished business which diminish excitement, satisfaction, fulfilment and growth. The client learns to become aware of what he or she is doing, to bring forth their ability to make changes, and to experiment with new ways of being.

Gestalt Therapy focuses on process (what is actually happening) as well as on content (what is being talked about). The emphasis is on what is being done, thought, and felt at the present moment in the here and now, rather than on what was, might have been and should have been in the past, in the there and then.

Gestalt Therapy is experimental and experiential in its approach. It relies on the awareness of what constitutes contact and how contact becomes modified - within the individual, in relationship between the individual and an another, and with the environment.
