9781446207284: An Introduction to Gestalt

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 MA, MSc (Psychotherapy) is a UKCP registered psychotherapist in private practice and a supervisor, trainer and consultant in a variety of settings. She is a BACP senior accredited supervisor, a Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst and a Visiting Professor at Middlesex University.

Charlotte has been working in the field of psychological therapies since 1979, at first as counsellor then manager of Hounslow SSD’s Bereavement Project, then qualifying in psychotherapy in 1986.  She has worked as tutor and supervisor on a range of training courses nationally and internationally. She was also, until 2007, part of the Leadership Team at Metanoia Institute, London, where she remains a member of the faculty.  Another interest is in the interface between therapy and coaching and she works at Ashridge Business School, Herts where she is part of the tutor team of the Masters in Executive Coaching. 

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

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 Contracts in Counselling and Psychotherapy (2nd edition 2006 Sage) and Coaching Relationships (edited with Erik de Haan 2012 Libri Press).



Phil Lapworth is a counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor in private practice near Bath and has written extensively in the field of counselling and psychotherapy.

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)
