Gestalt therapy is an existential, experiential form of psychotherapy which focuses on the individuals here and now (present moment) experience/awareness through its approach. Being a holistic form of psychotherapy, Gestalt therapy looks at the whole person in regards to their mind, and body (thoughts and feelings) inseparably.
Gestalt group work offers the opportunity for individuals to explore personal issues with others who are interested in understanding themselves, and their relationship with others. Some of the benefits that may arise from Gestalt group work are:
- The development of greater awareness,
- A chance to work and experiment with a wide range of emotions, and
- The chance to experiment with different ways of being with others.
Furthermore, influenced by oriental religions especially Taoism and Zen Buddhism, Gestalt therapy also has strong links to mindfulness in its approach.
This one day taster session is open to anyone looking to broaden their experience of working in groups/organizations, or who simply want to use this taster session as a way to enhance their own personal development by looking at their interactions in groups.
