About gestalt and Gestalt Therapy Australia (GTA)

Gestalt therapy is a form of psychotherapy that applies a holistic approach to understanding and addressing an individual's experiences. It emphasises the interconnectedness of an individual's thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. The term ‘gestalt’ is a German word, meaning whole or form. It is a vibrant, creative, and deeply compassionate approach to connecting therapeutically with others.

Gestalt Therapy Australia (GTA) was founded in 1995, and the training program we deliver has become nationally and internationally renowned. At GTA, students are immersed in an experiential learning process that is holistic, integrated and developmental. It is primarily designed to foster capacities essential for deep connection. In this way, it stands apart from other courses that can be more dryly academic or module-based.

Our program includes an internship with ConnectGround, our community-based clinic. The internship is an apprenticeship in gestalt psychotherapy that provides students with the opportunity to work with clients in a supportive and collegial learning environment.

Gestalt thinking has many applications in many settings. Gestalt practitioners work with individuals, couples, families, and groups in private, community, and organisational practice. At the heart of gestalt practice, there is a commitment to support better relating and living more fully.
