The Gestalt Counseling and Training Institute of Ann Arbor

Holistic Therapy for Mind, Body and Soul

A configuration so unified as a whole that its properties
cannot be derived from a simple summation of its parts.

Gestalt Therapy:
A psychotherapeutic approach that supports the process of
developing awareness of the intrinsic nature of one's True Self.

" Gestalt therapy is existential, experiential and experimental. But what techniques you use to implement that and to apply it, that depends to the greatest extent on your background, on your experiences professionally, in life, your skills and whatever. The Gestalt therapist uses himself and herself with whatever they have got and whatever seems to apply, at the time, to the actual situation: a patient, a group, a trainee, whatever." Laura Perls, Co-founder of Gestalt Therapy

Gestalt Therapy is an experiential therapy emphasizing what is happening in the here and now to help individuals become more self-aware and learn responsibility for and integration of thoughts, feelings, and actions.
