Psychotherapy and counselling
Psychotherapy and counselling can help us at times when we feel isolated, overwhelmed, or experiencing a major life change, loss or separation, or an issue we cannot resolve.
Psychotherapy and counselling offer the opportunity to explore our thoughts and feelings in a confidential and non-judgmental environment. Talking things through with someone who will really listen can help us to see things clearly, come to terms with our problems, make the choices that are available more apparent and where possible, to find a solution. Overall, it will alleviate our suffering and increase our well-being. We can find a sense of purpose and meaning that may be missing in our lives, helping remove the blocks preventing us from fulfilling our potential.
Gestalt Psychotherapy is a humanistic and experiential form of therapy based on Existential philosophy developed by Fritz and Laura Perls, and Paul Goodman.
Gestalt Psychotherapy aims at finding wholeness and integration through awareness in the ‘here and now ‘; a person takes responsibility for him/herself and moves from dependency towards independence and wholeness.
The therapist challenges clients with questions so that the clients increase their awareness of feelings, become aware of what they are doing, how they are doing it, and how they can change themselves and develop a stronger ability to face daily situations and problems, and at the same time, to learn to accept and value themselves.
Therapeutic sessions are not isolated moments but together with the time between sessions are part of an overall change.
