An Introduction to Gestalt Reviews

'This is an extremely clear and accessible introduction for students of counselling, as well as an increasing number of coaches and organisation consultants. The authors have succeeded not only in setting out the core principles of a Gestalt orientation, but bring these to life with case examples of Gestalt 'in use' -
Simon Cavicchia is an APECS Accredited Executive Coach, UK registered Gestalt Psychotherapist and Joint Programme Leader MSc in Coaching Psychology
'As the authors mentioned, Gestalt is nowadays - and in fact, has always been - a vibrating mix of practical ideas, psychological concepts and philosophical movements - ranging from theory of perception, through phenomenology and existentialism to Zen Buddhism. Authors kept very well with this tradition. [...] At the very end of the book you can find practical templates for working with clients - ready to use! Also additional readings after almost every chapter provide useful resource for further exploration of the key Gestalt themes. I highly recommend An Introduction to Gestalt as useful and inspirational toolbox for both coaches and therapists' -- Dr. Robert Riethof, Czech Republic
