- Gestalt therapy focuses on what happens between you and me and on your ongoing experience in the present moment (here-and-now).
- In therapy, I look at how you communicate: how your body moves, the sound of your voice, how you think and feel and how you give meaning to your own experiences.
- Gestalt therapy works from ‘the paradox of change’ principle. The paradox is that the more you try to be who you’re not, the more you stay the same. Many people focus on what they should be rather than who they (already) are. This means I work with your qualities and your shortcomings. The more you learn to accept who you are, the more changes you’ll discover, big and small.
- Gestalt therapy is an exploration rather than a direct modification of behavior. The goal is growth and autonomy through increased awareness and the ability to be aware. What leads to change in not so much increased awareness as the increased ability to be aware.
- Gestalt therapy has a creative, experimental approach to life and also to the therapy process.
- Gestalt therapy is a surprising and dynamic process, focused on helping you (re)connect to both yourself and other people.
- Gestalt therapy is suitable for people who are curious to know more about themselves, who want to grow, develop and are looking for depth and meaning in their life.
