Gestalt approach on I-Thou relationship
Patients are the main focus in Gestalt therapy. The Gestalt differs from the traditional therapy as it is a horizontal relationship. Direct experiences and being in the present is the center, the language of present experience is spoken by both the participant and the therapist. Both, the therapist and the client need to show the presence in the moment. This allows the patient to act as an equal who has full access to the data of his own experience so that what the therapist has observed from outside the patient or client can experience from inside.
