Gestalt therapy is a form of psychotherapy that was developed in the 1940s and 1950s by Fritz Perls, Laura Perls, and Paul Goodman. It is based on the gestalt psychology principles, which emphasize the importance of understanding an individual's experiences in the context of their environment and relationships. The therapy focuses on the here-and-now and encourages individuals to become more aware of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in the present moment.
Gestalt therapy places a strong emphasis on the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client, and it is often seen as a collaborative and creative process. The therapy helps individuals to identify and understand their patterns of behavior and thought, and to explore new ways of thinking and behaving. The goal of gestalt therapy is to help individuals to become more self-aware and to live in a way that is authentic and fulfilling. It is often used to treat a wide range of psychological issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and addiction.
