Counselling services are available at Hamilton Chiropractic Clinic Monday to Friday for individual counselling appointments or couple counselling sessions.
The clinic has two qualified Counsellors and Psychotherapists who are both experienced Gestalt Therapists and accredited members of Gestalt Australia and new Zealand (GANZ).
Often people come to therapy when they are feeling stuck, wounded, confused, or finding life unsatisfying in some way. It is the therapist’s job to work with each individual to understand their difficulties and discover how these get in the way of healing recovery and satisfaction in the present moment.
Gestalt therapy is an approach to living that values awareness, or mindfulness. It supports creative choice, encouraging self-responsibility in a person’s efforts to solve problems and achieve fulfilment. From a gestalt therapy perspective, all aspects of a person’s experience and environment are worthy of attention; the physical, social, psychological, intellectual, spiritual and emotional.
Each person and therapy is unique. When therapy begins, client and therapist together assess whether they can establish a relationship where clear, open communication is possible. After that, the time required for the therapy varies depending on each person’s individual needs.
