Sligo Gestalt Counselling was established by fully qualified Accredited Gestalt Counsellors/Psychotherapists Hugh Bennett and Tina Bennett. Between us we have more than 29 years experience in counselling.
We provide professional one-to one counselling/psychotherapy, couple counselling/psychotherapy, supervision, online counselling/psychotherapy and supervision, group work, personal development and training and are situated in Sligo Town.
Counselling and pyschotherapy using Gestalt methodology has proved to be effective for the following issues:
- Panic Attacks
- Sexual Abuse
- Relationship Issues
- Self Esteem
- Sexuality Issues
- Coping with change
- Group Work
- Work Related Issues
This is by no means an exhaustive list.
Our services are underpinned by the belief that everyone has the capacity to move towards health and well being. As counsellors and psychotherapists, our emphasis is on increasing people's personal awareness of how they are in the world, how they interact with themselves and others.
Sometimes due to childhood experiences or traumatic events we can loose our sense of 'self' leading to a feeling of 'something missing' and development of less fullfiling or even destructive relationships with ourselves and others.
Increasing personal awareness leads to growth, choice and change and Gestalt Counselling/ Psychotherapy encourages people to be more present to themselves and engaged in their own lives. Our practice is also influenced by meditation and mindfulness techniques.
We work according to the Code of Ethics of the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy www.iacp.ie
