Amely has been drawing much of her life's orientation and inspiration from the Gestalt perspective and methodology and also from Eastern Philosophy, mainly through Tibetan Buddhism and its Mindfulness Practice. She completed her Gestalt Psychotherapy training in the late 80's and has since then maintained a private practice. Her approach to working in the sessions is grounded in the 'here and now' of the immediacy of the therapeutic encounter. Staying with the obvious in the 'dialogue' she hopes you will find a connectedness with yourself that allows you to experience yourself fully, in your thoughts, your feelings and your body sensations. Through this awareness you will learn to trust yourself clearly and with confidence. This creates the base for re-instating a sense of wholeness in your being in the world and your environment. The themes of this encounter is going to be dictated by your interest, needs and requirements.
