Gestalt Therapy is a phenomenological-existential psychotherapy founded by Frederick and Laura Perls in 1940 and subsequently progressed by others. Gestalt therapy is a procedure-orientated psychotherapy that concentrates more on what is happening (procedure) than on what is being deliberated (content). More importance is put on what is being experienced at each moment than what occurred and/or should have occurred. In the Gestalt psychotherapy, the therapist and the client both communicate. The difference in their outlooks opens the door for further experimentation and conversation. The goal is for the client to become conscious of his actions (what he’s doing and how he’s doing it) and his being (how he can transform himself and how to appraise and accept it).
