Dr. Leena Petersen, Gestalt (Couples) Counseling in Lüneburg

Sometimes in life, our ability to deal with certain situations can be impaired, causing us to stagnate in certain patterns or programs of behaviour. In Gestalt Therapy, we reflect or mirror the client’s current life situation in order to understand the whole spectrum of related life experiences that the client has had, paying attention to the social dimension of these experiences. This process aims to understand what has come to a standstill in the client’s life, and to bring it into motion once again.

Therapeutic support is thus oriented to enhance the client’s ability to react adequately and in a creative way towards life situations and the various challenges that the client will meet.

The Gestalt Approach is well suited for couples counseling since Gestalt Therapy focuses on that which has become stuck or stagnant (within a relationship), with the aim of allowing it to flow once more. Within this approach, I do not impart fixed communication techniques or skills, nor do I seek to identify symptoms or offer a diagnosis; instead, I will carefully seek to pinpoint, together with you, the reasons for patterns and recurrent negative dynamics. You are invited to learn something new about yourself, and, moreover, to develop a more gentle way of dealing with yourself and your partner.

I offer Gestalt Counseling and Couples Therapy in a practice room in Lüneburg (Altstadt).
