"I am not in this world to live up to other people's expectations, nor do I feel that the world must live up to mine."
- Fritz Perls, Founder of Gestalt Therapy
Gestalt therapy is an existential/experiential form of psychotherapy that emphasizes personal responsibility, and that focuses upon the individual's experience in the present moment, the therapist-client relationship, the environmental and social contexts of a person's life, and the self-regulating adjustments people make as a result of their overall situation.
Gestalt Therapy Is Effective.
In working with people who create excessive anxiety and depression in their lives by judging themselves, rejecting themselves, and alienating themselves. The goal of therapy is heightened awareness, greater satisfaction and acceptance, and more choice in life. Learn how to engage more authentically with the world and with yourself in process that is co-created between you and the therapist.
Why Choose Gestalt Therapy?
Gestalt Therapy is appropriate for anyone seeking to change habitual patterns of relating to themselves and others that leave a feeling of dissatisfaction, loneliness, and frustration. It is a method that focuses on heightened awareness and personal responsibility. Most people come to therapy conflicted with a desire to change, and yet mainly a desire for symptomatic relief. Gestalt therapy offers real opportunities for change through authentic and warm feedback from the therapist. The therapist's role is to guide a process, rather than diagnose of modify behaviour.
