Gestalt therapy

 is an experiential psychotherapy that focuses on the individual's experience in the present moment, the therapist-client relationship, the environmental and social contexts in which these things take place, and the self-regulating adjustments people make as a result of the overall situation.  It emphasises personal responsibility.  In Gestalt Therapy we use our awareness to encourage personal growth and develop our potential to become whole.  We do this by noticing how we are living now and exploring how we may create any fixed patterns of behavior that leave us feeling unsatisfied, uncomfortable, or ill at ease.  Gestalt encourages a nonjudgmental awareness of our present experience from moment to moment.  Noticing what we experience and how we behave in the present creates an opportunity to explore changes in behavior and attitudes now.  This may enable us to complete previously unresolved experiences and to develop more satisfying ways of expressing ourselves.

Guided Imagery

This relaxation therapy uses suggestion and positive affirmations to ease stress, and promote a sense of peace and tranquility. It helps you to communicate with your unconscious mind and give it positive directions with healing visualization. By conjuring relaxing and positive images, you are able to activate the brain and stimulate the endocrine and nervous systems to release positive hormones. This boosts your immune system, and helps you to relax, de-stress and self-heal.
