What is Gestalt Therapy?
With the Gestalt modality, the focus is more on the present moment rather than on past experiences. By learning how to be empathic with oneself, it helps to reduce distress and improve self-trust.
During a Gestalt therapy session, you may be asked to act out a dramatized version of a real-life event – bringing the past into the present. Because the individual is playing a role, some of the repressed portions of their underlying personality are likely to surface. Once those subdued responses are revealed, they can then be addressed effectively.
Gestalt therapy is proven effective for treating resentment, anxiety, depression, BPD, PTSD, compulsions, relationship issues, and, of course, it is great at helping with self-esteem and confidence issues.
