About Gestalt Therapy

Gestalt therapy is a growth-oriented, contextual and relational approach to living and working with people. The Gestalt approach embraces a person’s whole life experience – physical, psychological, intellectual, emotional, interpersonal and spiritual. Each of these interconnected aspects of living is considered inseparable from a person’s environment, history and culture.

From a gestalt perspective a well-lived life is grounded in a person’s awareness of how they live their life and conduct their relationships, in the present, within their life space. From this perspective, the Gestalt approach seeks to promote awareness, support creative choice, encourage responsibility and facilitate connectedness in a person’s efforts to realise a meaningful and fulfilling life.
