    Perfect for trainee psychotherapists - great little summaries of Gestalt approach

  • By Guest on 31 March 2017

    I ordered this book 2 days ago, it arrived yesterday and I am finding it hard to put it down! WOW ... what a brilliant book, I feel I need to put it down to 'soak in' the information, I do however feel this book I will come back to time and time again.. It gives great insight into Gestalt therapy, which I have briefly touched on in Level 3 Counselling skills and I can't wait for some more free time to delve back in :-) I would highly recommend this book...

    This book is so well organised and thought through. It manages to get to the heart of Gestalt processes with excellent examples as well as providing guidance for how to structure sessions. For any therapists wondering if this is the book to help with incorporating Gestalt into their practice, do not hesitate, buy it now.
