About Terrigal Gestalt Institute
We are an independent Gestalt therapy, training, and healing organisation located on the beautiful Central Coast of New South Wales.
Our professional, personal and spiritual development programs have been crafted to provide you with compassion and support throughout your learning and healing experience.
Grounded in the Gestalt approach, our training and retreat programs, and individual sessions, flow naturally from a synthesis of transpersonal and healing practice underpinned with heart-centred Gestalt practice.
Originally founded in 2005 in response to an initial group of very passionate and enthusiastic students on the Central Coast who, after having been introduced to the Gestalt model, wanted to continue to train as Gestalt Counsellors and Psychotherapists. For ten years TGI offered an intensive four year Advanced Diploma of Gestalt Therapy and from 2018 now offers individually tailored online Gestalt training courses, Professional Development and Clinical Supervision as well as Gestalt Healing Retreats.
The vision held for the Terrigal Gestalt Institute is to become a centre of excellence for the Gestalt way: with a heart for community and connection.
“Terrigal Gestalt Institute has a vision to become a place of healing and excellence. A place that offers therapeutic services, accessible training and professional development, personal & spiritual development, and healing for participants, that is both creative and profound. Our emphasis is on providing our programs through a transpersonal lens of community, connectedness and deep respect for each other.”
Our programs have been created to provide participants with optimal support throughout the process, in a safe and creative environment.
Our training courses are personally designed for participants so that they are both creative and accessible. On completion of the online Gestalt training program, participants will have had a basic introduction to the Gestalt approach, and guidance will be given if participants wish to complete further studies in Gestalt Therapy. Ultimately, our aim is to enable participants to develop their own unique style, utilising their creative ability and inner wisdom to relate to others with meaning and authenticity.
