Gestalt therapy

Gestalt therapy was developed primarily in the 1940s and 1950s, and it is known for its focus on personal responsibility. It is a form of psychotherapy that analyses how an individual experiences the world in the present moment. Patients in gestalt therapy are encouraged to look at the larger picture of their situations and consider the self in decisions. Rather than facilitate the patient's healing process, gestalt therapy stresses the importance of presence.

Unlike other forms of psychotherapy, gestalt therapy is considered to be experimental. How the therapist engages with their patient and how they get them to focus on the present moment, is entirely at the discretion of the professional. Techniques often associated with gestalt therapy include the therapist asking the patient to imagine the presence of a parent or a manager in the room. Meditation techniques are also associated with gestalt. The intended results of gestalt therapy are to engage the patient with selfhood and the concept of choice.

Gestalt Therapy in Glasgow

Understanding how much impact you have in the world can be daunting. It is difficult to come to terms with the choices you have in the present moment because it can put pressure on your present situation. Here at Psychology Scotland, we acknowledge the challenges you may face, and we want to work closely with you to help you make the best situations possible. We have prioritised creating a safe and friendly environment where you will be welcomed. Whether you are new to therapy or have existing experience with psychological counselling, Psychology Scotland is here to make the therapeutic journey rewarding and enjoyable.

Our professional therapists will advise on the most suitable programme. After initial assessments, a pathway will be chosen that will directly match your situation and needs. You can be assured of the expertise offered at Psychology Scotland because all our therapeutic interventions are rooted in strong empirical evidence. In addition to the counselling process, we want to provide you with the tools to build a better life long after you have left therapy. We understand that you will face difficulties in the future, and we offer a service that will equip you with the right tools to deal with these challenges.

Undertaking gestalt therapy will help provide clarity when making present decisions. If you are aware of your emotional state of being and the environment they exist in, then you can begin to make reasonable choices that improve your wellbeing. It is often used for assertiveness training and treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). If these are issues that you are familiar with, then we are here to help you start the therapeutic process. Taking the first step toward counselling is often the hardest. Psychology Scotland will support you through your journey and help you make better decisions for yourself and your loved ones. We are ready to work alongside you for now and in the future.
