This one-day course is open to anyone who wants to begin exploring the Gestalt approach. You’ll see how Gestalt can increase your self-awareness and improve the way you relate to others – and you’ll start to understand how people put Gestalt to positive use in their lives and in their work.

Who takes this course?

This course is an ideal introduction, whether you’re contemplating training in Gestalt counselling or psychotherapy, or you want to consider how Gestalt concepts might be helpful in your current work with people.

Why study Gestalt

Gestalt uses some powerful tools. There’s a particular focus on the individual’s experience in the present moment and on the context of our experience and actions. Studying Gestalt brings greater depth of self awareness and understanding, which can greatly improve your communication skills. It’s an excellent counterpart to many coaching techniques and also very useful for personal development.

Course outline

The day introduces an overview of Gestalt and its fundamental principles, and provides an opportunity to explore the theory and practice of some basic concepts.
