Gestalt Counselling works with what is in the 'Now' of the client, focusing what is affecting the client’s well-being and stifling the everyday function of that individual.
Sometimes a person may feel 'stuck' or 'numb'. Gestalt works with the 'awareness' of what is really going on and helps to move the individual forward feeling more connected with their 'self' and the outside world.
Gestalt works with every possible influence that comes into contact with the person (Phenomenology), including a very important part of the counselling process which is the relationship with the counsellor. Therefore each session is completely different to the next, dynamic, focused and individual to each client.
This form of therapy is seen as an un-scripted form of free-flowing therapy, which is organic and unique to each person.
Many people seeking counselling services find this area of therapy gets to the core of the problem quickly and deals with their issues very effectively.
Sessions can include;
Mindfulness, guided relaxation and breathing techniques to combat stress and anxiety. Creative visualization, existential guidance, object work and much more.
There are no specific 'types' of person that present needing counselling support. Counselling is usually sought as an option in order to help cope or come to terms with a situation or personal issue, when a resolution can't be made on your own or naturally. It can sometimes be hard to pinpoint why you may feel the way you do and counselling is there to help unravel the unsurity and help you make sense.
Many people can find counselling a difficult step yet probably the most rewarding one of their lives.
Counselling is an exploration into the 'self' that no other form of help or support can fulfil in quite the same way.
It can be a challenging process at a difficult time, yet can also be enlivening and freeing for those willing to explore themselves.
