Self-care? Support? Given our increasingly hectic lives, we may know we need these things, but what exactly are they? Join us for an experiential workshop exploring the concepts of self-care and support from a Gestalt perspective.
Gestalt therapy is a relationship-based, client-centered approach to psychotherapy. Instead of a more hierarchal, top-down approach (ie. the therapist as ‘expert’), therapist and client co-create the relationship together. We focus on the ‘here and now’ and try to understand what is happening in the moment, rather than getting stuck in perceptions of what might be, based on previous experiences.
Focusing on self-awareness, Gestalt therapy is particularly helpful in addressing issues like anxiety, depression, self-esteem, grief, loss and relationship difficulties. Taking a creative, body-centric approach, Gestalt techniques can be used in combination with body work, dance, art, drama, and other creative therapies that fit.
Through the Gestalt process, we will work to bring negative thought patterns and behaviours into awareness as a way to unblock realizations of true self-awareness and happiness.
