Gestalt Therapy

Gestalt Therapy

Gestalt therapy is a holistic approach, which looks at our existence and suffering in the context of our environment. The emphasis is on awareness and the experience of the present moment. The aim of the therapy is to support us to become more self-aware and take responsibility for our lives and the way we create our own suffering. The more aware we are of how we live our lives, the more we are able to consider other choices, resulting in a greater sense of empowerment and satisfaction with life. The therapy is based on the dialogue between the therapist and the client (I-Thou, Martin Buber).

Family Constellations

Family constellations therapy as developed by Bert Hellinger in Germany, offers a powerful, cutting-edge, psychotherapeutic model within a phenomenological framework. This innovative work supports us to explore the impacts of past family and relationship traumas and the resultant adverse affects on our lives. The aim of the therapy is to bring hidden dynamics (entanglements) to light, so that the ‘Orders of Love’ can be restored, supporting the love in a family system to flow. This work has been broadly applied to family and individual therapy, homoeopathy and organisational consultation. As a result, we may experience more peace within ourselves, with our family members and a greater sense of being in charge of our lives.
