I work with adults from a Gestalt therapy perspective. In my work I focus on “Here and Now”. It does not mean I do not pay attention to the past or I am not interested in the future. The past and the future for me are the great resources that can be used as the tools to build a better and more harmonious present.
Gestalt therapy is also the therapy of choice. We can blame our problems on an unhappy childhood, or we can take a look at the strengths we have today to change something in our lives.
Gestalt therapy is sometimes called the therapy of action. It does not specifically search for explanations and sources of current problems and difficulties. Such questions as “why?” and “who do I need to blame?” usually do not change anything and do not help even if the answer is found. Only our actions, and not our mental constructs, can change our lives.
I believe that psychotherapy is meant to be a temporary intervention and not a crutch or a surrogate for a real relationship. Of course there are life situations when a counselor can become the only person available for an open and honest conversation and support. But very few people need to see a psychotherapist every week for many years. My goal is to help you find your own foothold, your own inner strength and support in your surroundings outside of my office.
