Gestalt Coaching Works…


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


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


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

A Gestalt coach is attentive to two parallel processes at the same time – the client’s and their own. These are not static but rather are in continuous movement, at some moments separate, at others overlapping, intersecting or resisting.

A Gestalt coach helps clients improve the ways they scan their internal and external environments, gather data, and make sense of that data in order to expand choices and engage in productive actions.

Gestalt Coaching, a present-focused approach, seeks to recognize the critical choice points for action that exist in the moment but that promise long-term effect. Being able to track and attend to the fluctuations of client and coach self-awareness throughout the coaching encounter, and so to be ready when that moment emerges, is the heart of mastery.

Metamorphic Coaching

Our Approach

Gestalt-based coaching can be called “metamorphic coaching” in that it calls for client transformation achieved through awareness, choice and integration.

A Gestalt coach brings the gift of an integrated presence to the coaching encounter, wherein behavior and use of self are aligned with core values and full access to emotional life. This lends power for supporting clients to share their interior and to have the experience of being heard under the avowed premise that they are already healthy, whole, and resourceful.
