Master NLP Practitioner & Gestalt Therapist
Similarities between Gestalt and Psycho-analysis.
The first similarity between Gestalt and Psycho-analysis is that both forms of therapy follow a directive approach. This means that the course of the therapy is directed by the counsellor or therapist as per the relevance and specific requirements.
The second similarity is that of wholeness and the self. Both therapies emphasise on a person’s id, ego, and superego and its relation with the self, society, and culture.
Another similarity is that Gestalt therapy and Psycho-analysis aim towards a person’s growth and development. This includes lesser regression and greater focus on the present.
