Gestalt psychotherapy is a complex psychological system, that stresses the development of client self-awarness and personal responsibility.

Gestalt therapy is “unpredictable”. In that the therapist and client follow moment-to-moment experience and neither knows exactly where this will take them.

The relationship between the therapist and the client is the most important aspect of psychotherapy. The interaction between therapist and client is an ever changing dialogue marked by straightforward caring, warmth, acceptance, and self-responsibility.

Gestalt psychotherapy holds the view that people are endlessly remaking or discovering themselves; therefore, individuals are always in constant transformation.

In therapy, the Gestalt therapist is active and sessions are lively and characterized by warmth, acceptance, caring, and self-responsibility and promote direct experiencing of a situation or event rather than passively talking about the event.

Many therapeutic interventions called exercises and experiments have been developed to enhance awareness and bring about client change

They are spontaneous, one-of-a-kind, and relevant to a particular moment and the particular development of an emerging issue such as the client’s reports of a need, dream, fantasy, and body awareness. Experiments are done with full participation and  collaboration with clients and are designed to expand clients’ awareness and to help them to try out new ways of behaving rather than to achieve a particular result.
