This thoroughly revised edition of Gestalt Counselling introduces the fundamental concepts of Gestalt and systematically demonstrates how to apply and use these in practice. Taking a relational perspective, expert authors Charlotte Sills, Phil Lapworth and Billy Desmond explore how Gestalt can be used in a wide variety of ′helping conversations′ from counseling, psychotherapy and coaching to mentoring, managing, consulting and guiding. After placing Gestalt in its current socio-political context, each chapter provides everyday examples and illustrative vignettes from a variety of settings to bring the theory to life and suggest how that concept may be usefully applied.

About the Author:

Charlotte Sills is a UKCP registered psychotherapist in private practice and a supervisor, trainer and consultant in a variety of settings. She has been working in the field of psychological therapies since 1979 and is a BACP senior accredited supervisor, a Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst and a Visiting Professor at Middlesex University. Until 2007 she was also part of the Leadership Team at Metanoia Institute where she remains a member of the faculty. Another interest is in the interface between therapy and coaching and she is a member of faculty of the Masters in Executive Coaching and Professor of Coaching at Ashridge Business School, UK.

Charlotte believes that all human systems – from friendships to organizations – are about people in relationship, and she sees Gestalt as an ideal approach for facilitating effective, vibrant and satisfying  relating.

Charlotte has published widely in the field of counselling and psychotherapy, including An Introduction to Gestalt with Phil Lapworth and Billy Desmond (SAGE, 2012) and Coaching Relationships (edited with Erik de Haan, Libri Press, 2012).

 

Review:

′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 2013-06-03)
