Gestalt Therapy

I often find that there are little signs, such as body movements, a laugh, or side smile that speak much louder than the words that the client says. Whether it is a shrug of the shoulders or the shrinking of one’s body I help bring these little signs to light. Not to shame but to help my client explore what is going on, bring those thoughts and feelings to the surface and work through them. My goal and hope in pointing out these cues are to encourage the use of words and decrease dependence on these signs to say “I’m not okay”, “I’m uncomfortable.”
