Contemporary Gestalt therapy that I practice is based on mindfulness of what’s going on in our body and in a relationship with the therapist. It follows and respects your individual process and focuses creatively on what might carry something significant for you. It takes also into consideration your historical and cultural field as well as all aspects of your life that might affect you.
Gestalt therapy can provide a lively exploration of people’s feelings through exercises that are co-created between you and a therapist on the spot depending on what might be the most relevant for you. They often give more insight into what you struggle with and provide you with more information on where you are with it in your life and what you can do. Gestalt also offers working with props such as creative objects, art materials or movement which again can provide you with a fresh and different perspective on your difficulties.
