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 a powerful experiential psychotherapy focusing on contact and awareness in the here and now.
The Gestalt Therapist works in relation to their client to deconstruct non-productive patterns of relationship and make the therapy session a "live laboratory" for exploring new ways of being in the world.
The process of therapy, begins with the therapist as a witness, then guide and partner, in a co-creation that depends of safe and effective use of oneself, in which both, client and therapist, grow from the encounter.
