what is gestalt therapy?

Gestalt therapy is an action approach to authentic living that emphasizes dynamic, present centered awareness rather than abstract analysis. It is a psychotherapy of growth, not one of illness and pathology. As such, the focus is on creative adjustment and the facilitation of ongoing maturation throughout one’s life. Picture a jigsaw with only one piece missing: we have an inherent desire to fit that piece, and an innate sense of satisfaction when the picture is complete. This drive to completion, wholeness, or Gestalt, is what propels us to deal with unfinished issues in our lives and to experience a nagging sense of discomfort until that is done.
