Welcome to Gestalt Center For Coaching

Gestalt Center for Coaching is the primary center serving the world for training, development and research in application of Gestalt approach in coaching and development of individuals, teams and organizations, and larger systems. We teach a Gestalt-based approach to coaching and consulting that incorporates cutting-edge developmental theories from thought leaders worldwide. The Center is founded on core Gestalt values which hold that it is the awareness of self and others, in the context of aware possibilities, that support choice for intervention and success.

Gestalt Coaching Works…

Point your mouse to boxes to see more….

Experientially

by inviting clients to become aware of their immediate contextual responses (e.g., physical, psychological, emotional, cognitive)

The heart of a Gestalt approach lies in internalizing and applying the power of awareness.

The Gestalt coach works with awareness to facilitate clients’ self identification of habitual, unaware patterns of response, particularly those that interfere with their ability to respond in changing situations.

Experimentally

by collaboratively and creatively supporting clients’ safe exploration of alternative perceptual and behavioral choices

Gestalt coaches offer creative experiments to strengthen clients’ awareness.

Experiments interrupt habitual perceptual or behavioral patterns and invite opportunity. Gestalt coaches creates “safe emergencies” for clients that enable expanded possibilities and new choices.

Existentially

by encouraging clients’ awareness of self and others, which yields “data” that informs actions to achieve desired outcomes

The Gestalt coach keeps clients focused on whatever emerges in the moment.

Gestalt approach uses whatever occurs in the moment as the experiential and existential ground for coach and client to explore and experiment with. As Kierkegaard says “be with what is, so that what is possible, may become”.
