What is Gestalt?
Gestalt provides a practical, creative approach to psychotherapy and emphasises, that we can only be understood as part of the environment in which we live. It underlines the importance of the connection between events and the settings in which the events occur. In the famous phrase: “no man is an island”: we all influence and are influenced by our surroundings all the time.
The therapeutic relationship is integral to the process of growth and involves supporting a fuller sense of the ways that experience emerges, including feelings thoughts and actions, in different situations and at different times. The approach focuses on the development of holistic awareness of each other, our circumstances and how we function differently in different situations. Through raised awareness of moment-to-moment activity in the therapeutic setting, choices about how we live, interact with our world and make contact with others are increased.
