Translated from the German word, gestalt implies wholeness, or if used as a verb ‘to make whole.’ Gestalt therapy (often referred to as Gestalt Psychotherapy or Gestalt Counselling) is a relational and experiential form of psychotherapy developed in the 1940’s and 1950’s by a group of psychologists, psychiatrists, philosophers and educators. The founding members of Gestalt therapy are Fritz Perls, Laura Perls and Paul Goodman. Gestalt focuses on the here and now of a client’s thoughts, feelings and situation, providing a holistic engagement with the nature of the human condition. It privileges experiential learning, human relating and believes strongly in the therapeutic relationship as a healing relationship. Recently Neuroscience discovered that a relationship with someone who can supply support and understanding reshapes a person’s neurological possibilities. That is, with the right supportive environment, change is possible.
