Gestalt practitioners help to find new perspectives to problems to bring about positive changes in peoples lives.

This can help them deal with relationship problems and mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and stress.

  • Apply your knowledge and skills with at least 100 hours of supervised counselling on a placement in the community
  • Study at Eastleigh College with access to support and services at the University of Portsmouth
  • Apply for student membership of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and get access to member resources including journal subscriptions, free courses and job boards while you study
