The Gestalt Counseling and Training Institute of Ann Arbor

Holistic Therapy for Mind, Body and Soul

Because Gestaltists believe that all experience is co-created, dialogue is used as a method to encourage the open engagement of two phenomenologies(the therapist and the client). Appropriate self-disclosure of the therapist through dialogue helps to encourage authenticity within the relationship and also serves to create a shared language of meaning. The intent is to allow growth through the field of interpersonal transaction.
