Gestalt Therapy

Gestalt Therapy is a powerful experiential psychotherapy focusing on contact and awareness in the here and now. By following their client's ongoing process, with special attention to both the therapeutic relationship and the client's style of interrupting that process, the Gestalt Therapist can help their client work through and move beyond their painful emotional blocks. This can free them to begin to explore new behaviour, firstly in the safe emergency of the therapeutic relationship and/or group and then, as appropriate, in the outside world. The emphasis of Gestalt Therapy is not on talking about what has happened but on fully experiencing both what is, and what can be.
