What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a scientifically recognized treatment for mental health problems. When psychological or social difficulties cause us pain, it can be hard to imagine that things will get better at times. However, it is possible to find new ways forward. Psychotherapy can offer assistence in finding these new paths and if necessary encouragment to try them out.
Times of change or crises can be scary, but they are also chances for development.
In Austria 23 different approaches to psychotherapy are officially approved. My approach “Integrative Gestalttherapy” is one of them. In order to give you a first idea, whether this approach could suit you, I want to introduce its main ideas.

What is Integrative Gestalttherapy?

Integrative Gestalttherapy is an approach to psychotherapy that advocates a holistic view on a person. Thought, emotions and body perceptions influence one another and are all equally important if mental well-being wants to be achieved.
An important goal in Integrative Gestalttherapy is to reestablish contact with one’s needs and desires and learn how to take care of them in a way that works for that specific person. Since those needs can only be met in the present, the work focuses on the here and now. The past is acknowledged as the context of our experiences and explored so far as it still influences the present.

I believe psychotherapy is a shared effort that must be tailored to each persons individual needs. Integrative Gestalttherapy offers a variety of techniques that can facilitate the exploration of new perspectives in a safe setting. These techniques can include awareness exercises, roleplay, drawing, meditative imaginations and many more. All of these are offerings you are welcome to try out or decline at will.
