What to expect.
During Gestalt Therapy, the therapist focuses on what is happening in the moment and finding solutions in the present time. For example, rather than discuss why something happened in the past, the therapist will encourage you to re-enact the moment and discuss how it feels right now. In other words, you will be asked to experience your feelings, rather than simply talk about them. The goal is for you to take more responsibility for yourself, accept the consequences of your behavior, and learn to fulfill your own needs while still respecting the needs of others.
By building self-awareness, gestalt therapy helps clients better understand themselves and how the choices they make affect their health and relationships. With this self-knowledge, clients begin to understand how their emotions and bodies are connected and develop more self-confidence to start living a fuller life and deal with problems more effectively.
