Our students provide free short-term counselling to interested people as part of the education requirements for their Master of Gestalt Therapy. The counselling sessions are presented as part of our Student clinic. The sessions are generally conducted onsite at GTB premise in Brisbane. Students will have varying degrees of skill levels and counselling experience depending on their year level. Sessions will be under the supervision of GTB’s academic staff, either by being present during some sessions, or by viewing videotaped sessions.
Personal Therapy session
We are inviting people to sit with one of our student therapists. Throughout the year our students in Year 2, 3 & 4 are required to work with clients. Depending on their year enrolled they may have to complete 5 – 10 hours of client work. Sessions are scheduled by the student therapist as required.
Guest client session
We are inviting people to sit with one of our year 3 student therapists for up to 30 minutes. The idea is to support the learning for third years in welcoming a new client, introducing Gestalt therapy and beginning a session.
This occurs over a weekend in mid-June each year. Our students will work with a client on a Saturday, or Sunday.
Guest couple session
We are inviting couples to sit with our year 4 student therapists for between 30 – 45 minutes. The idea is to support the learning for fourth years in working therapeutically with couples utilising their Gestalt therapy skills.
This occurs over a weekend at the end of June each year. Our students work with couples on a Saturday, or Sunday.
