Have a safe trip back, dear Colleagues, participants in the 2018 Summer Programme for Gestalt Psychotherapists!

The possibility of giving ourselves time and space to breathe, concentrate, accept the support of someone else, has resulted in the miracle of being fully present as Gestalt psychotherapists in our world, which is changing fast. Globalization, dislocation, the threat of terrorism and economic challenges are having significant effects on clients and their communities.
We have explored the impact of these challenges for us, our clients , and for the development of gestalt psychotherapy.
We feel now more rooted, and ready to be present in our community.
Thank you All!
