Practice for Psychotherapy and Personal Growth

Psychotherapy stands for support, healing, nurturing and development of the whole person – one’s soul, mind, and vitality. Based on dialogue and embedded in the relationship between therapist and client, psychotherapy aims to alleviate mental suffering, help in life crises, change disturbed behaviors and attitudes, and promote personal development and health. The success of a psychotherapy treatment requires the active commitment of the client.

In a protected and confidential environment we will discuss your difficulties, life situations, experiences, relationships with significant others, work situations and your social environment, in order to fully understand the cause of your problem and to reawaken your own inner strength, needed to make the necessary internal and external changes for a fulfilling and healthy life.

On the way, you will most likely not only solve the original problem that brought you to psychotherapy but you will probably also rediscover yourself in the process, experience personal growth, increase your awareness and learn new competences which will help you build more meaningful and satisfying relationships, as well as enhance your ability to cope better with future challenges.

In its essence, Gestalt therapy is a theory of growth and development in which the immediate subjective experience (how we perceive ourselves and our surroundings), healthy self-regulation (how we meet our needs) and self-realization (how we develop our potential), play a central role.

Gestalt therapy is an integrative approach with elements of psychoanalysis, Gestalt psychology, field theory, existential philosophy, phenomenology, Martin Buber's philosophy of relationship and dialogue, and body psychotherapy. Gestalt therapy is based on a holistic view - human beings are seen as a unity of soul, body and spirit, embedded in their social and ecological environment.

The goal of the therapy is personal and societal growth through activating the self-healing power and potential of the individual, as well as through restoring the personal responsibility and decision-making. Gestalt therapy conveys a lifestyle that is characterized by mindfulness, respect and appreciation for oneself, the others and the environment.

Gestalt is a German word meaning "whole structure", "harmonious configuration", "meaningful organized whole".
