ABOUT GESTALT THERAPY

The basic goal of Gestalt therapy is for the individual to attain awareness of what they are doing and experiencing.

Through the process of awareness, the individual gains an understanding of himself and his environment. He/her recognizes the potential for change and his capacity to make choices, so that he may live an authentic, meaningful life.

Gestalt lends itself well to working with couples and families. All parties are normally seen together and by exploring dialogue in all its manifestations, ie talking or body language, we can look at the intention behind the language and gain awareness of what is happening in the relationship.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is an opportunity to increase our awareness of how we perceive and respond to others, and how others perceive and respond to us in a safe environment. Using Gestalt techniques, which is not just a talking therapy but can also involve movement, imagery and body work.
