Skills In Gestalt Counselling Psychotherapy ^NEW^

Skills in Gestalt Counselling & Psychotherapy is a practical introduction to the different techniques used at each stage of the counselling process. The book takes the reader through the process from beginning to termination and focuses on skills which arise out of Gestalt theory as well as those invoked by the counselling relationship.

Skills in Gestalt Counselling Psychotherapy

The authors also examine the spiritual dimension of counselling and offer guidance on some of the special considerations affecting counsellors such as the context in which they are working, the duration of the relationship, and particular problems with which clients present. For all those training in Gestalt or who wish to sharpen their skills as practitioners, this will be essential reading.

I address this book to counsellors and psychotherapists and trainee counsellors or psychotherapists of all orientations, and especially to those of you who are or wish to become Gestalt counsellors and psychotherapists; or who wish to integrate Gestalt into your current practice. The book is primarily designed for those who already have knowledge both of counselling and of Gestalt. However I have provided an optional section of this introduction on theoretical background (p. 14ff.) and I suggest that if you do not have any previous knowledge of Gestalt counselling and psychotherapy you might find it helpful to read this before the main body of ...

After the course, you could work as a gestalt counsellor in areas such as education, the police service, the prison service or the voluntary sector. The advanced skills and experience you gain will allow you to work with a wider variety of clients with more complex needs.

Gestalt holds a central position in this course and as an evolving, exciting and universally applicable theory it supports the use of counselling skills. It is well respected and has influenced and enriched many other therapeutic, educational and managerial approaches to supporting people.

We place high value on the transparency and supervision of all our Gestalt courses and the following bodies critically evaluate and guide us to deliver the very best in counselling and psychotherapy training.

The theme Integration brings together different theoretical perspectives in the counselling/psychotherapy field. The process of increasing and integrating counselling skills and self-awareness is further developed by the contributions from different theoretical perspectives. 041b061a72
