We use this side of our brain when we are being creative, when we are relaxed. Our gestalt side connects us to our intuitive thoughts and our feelings to see the bigger picture. This is where our “A HA” moments come from, or when a sudden solution comes to our conscious mind when we have just woken from sleep or have been in a relaxed state of non thinking and just being.
Gestalt psychotherapy connects us with this powerful creative resource that we have inside us so we can discover own internal wisdom.
This helps you gain a better understanding of yourself and the world around you by identifying your feelings and how those feelings are connected to your physical body. Understanding the internal self is the key to understanding your actions, reactions and behaviours.
Through a journey of self-discovery, this form of therapy empowers you with the skills necessary to face stressful situations. The answers lie within us all, and this wisdom helps each of us become more accepting of ourselves and others, which carries over into our communication, our decisions and our relationships. In turn this will help you feel more self-confident, calm and at peace.
Gestalt therapy is an effective approach for tension, depression, anxiety, addiction, post-trauma and other psychological challenges that prevent us from living a free, joyful and fulfilling life.
