What is Contemporary Gestalt Therapy?
Contemporary Gestalt Therapy is founded in the same 3 principles of Dialogue, Field Theory, and Phenomenology as it was when the founders Fritz Perls, Hefferline and Goodman developed it. However today it is not so focused on the revision of psychoanalysis as focused on the process element that supports the awareness of current experience from a phenomenological perspective, making contact at the boundary with others/s and difference, and supporting Paradoxical Nature of change. Which is to say not pushing for or attaching to the need for change, but to support the client in gaining awareness of the function of what they are doing and support them to invest more fully in their experience. It is from this place that they will naturally move toward what supports them best, when they are ready.
