Gestalt - Bodymind Tel: 0207 288 1894

In Gestalt Therapy we use our awareness to encourage personal growth and develop our potential, to become whole. We do this by noticing how we are living  now and exploring how we may create any fixed patterns of behaviour that leave us feeling dissatisfied, uncomfortable or ill at ease. Gestalt encourages a non judgemental awareness of our present experience from moment to moment .

Noticing what we experience ( perceptions, sensations, feelings) and how we behave ( express & communicate) in the present creates an opportunity to explore changes in our behaviour and attitudes now. This may enable us to complete previously unresolved experiences and to develop more satisfying ways of expressing our selves.

        INDIVIDUAL GESTALT THERAPY

  Ongoing Longer Term (Psychotherapy) or   Short Term Therapy (Counselling).

Awareness is an ever changing process and an important part of everyday life. Gestalt Therapy encourages us to pay attention to our moment to moment experiencing, of ourselves and our world.


This experiential therapy group provides an opportunity for you to explore yourself and your relationships . Over time, it can become a "mirror" to your life, enabling you to see more clearly your personal themes, needs, dreams and any habitual ways of satisfying or frustrating yourself.

What is Gestalt Therapy ?

 Gestalt therapy was first developed by Fritz & Laura Perls in the 1940/50s.

It is now one of the main Humanistic Psychotherapies. Gestalt is recognised for it's focus on developing authentic relating in the present (I & Thou, Here & Now), respect for the individual details of each person's experience (phenomenology), and range of expressive techniques (including imagery & enactment).

" Gestalt " comes from the German word meaning (roughly) whole or complete pattern/ configuration . Each person is viewed as a whole (Body/Mind/”Spirit”), a unique individual in a particular life situation, someone who can only be fully  understood in relation to their current situation as s/he experiences it.
