Gestalt is a growth oriented therapy; supporting aliveness, richness and depth, offering the possibility of a healthier and more satisfying life

The initial goal is for clients to gain awareness of what they are experiencing and how they are doing it. Through this awareness, change automatically occurs. Gestalt therapy is lively and ...the approach is experiential in that clients come to grips with what and how they are thinking, feeling, and doing as they interact with the therapist. Gestalt counsellors value being fully present during the therapeutic encounter, and growth occurs out of genuine contact between client and therapist”.
