Gestalt therapy and couples therapy
My name is Wilfried Sluys, Gestalt (NVAGT) relationship therapist. I work in my own practice of Gestalt therapy, where I give individual and couples therapy. I work in Purmerend, Amsterdam, so I’m easily accessibel for North-Holland.
You’ve found my site and you are therefore likely to orient the possibilities for individual Gestalt therapy and/or couples therapy. If that is the case, I might be of service to you.
I work as a Gestalt therapist.
Relational Gestalt therapy places a strong emphasis on the therapeutic relationship and the importance of understanding and working with the client’s relational patterns. Here are some of the most important aspects of Relational Gestalt therapy:
Awareness: Relational Gestalt therapy emphasizes the importance of developing awareness, both in the client and the therapist. This includes developing awareness of one’s thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations in the present moment, as well as developing awareness of the relationship dynamics between the client and therapist.
Dialogue: Relational Gestalt therapy emphasizes the importance of open and honest dialogue between the client and therapist. Through dialogue, the therapist helps the client to explore their relational patterns and work towards more fulfilling relationships.
Embodiment: Relational Gestalt therapy recognizes the importance of the body in shaping experience and behavior. This includes developing awareness of bodily sensations and using body-centered techniques to help the client access and express their emotions.
Experimentation: Relational Gestalt therapy encourages clients to experiment with new behaviors and ways of relating to others. The therapist may use techniques such as role-playing to help clients practice new ways of relating in a safe and supportive environment.
Field theory: Relational Gestalt therapy recognizes the importance of the client’s environment and social context in shaping their experience and behavior. The therapist helps the client to explore their relationships with others and how these relationships impact their sense of self and well-being.
Overall, Relational Gestalt therapy emphasizes the importance of the therapeutic relationship and working with the client’s relational patterns to help them develop more fulfilling and satisfying relationships in their lives.
type of therapy is based upon the contact between the client and therapist. On this site you can read more about Gestalt therapy, in her different forms. My practice includes individual psychotherapy, specializing in adults with a variety of needs as well as couples therapy.
