Summer Residential from Istituto di Gestalt Italy

Contemporary Gestalt thought and practice next to the ocean

Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb | Mon 18 – Sat 23 Nov 2019 | Bryon Bay


Dr. Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb brings her well received 1 week summer residential straight from Italy to Tallow Beach Houses between the Teatree Lake and the Pacific Ocean.

One of the most important and often forgotten issues for psychotherapists is to take care of oneself and to give oneself time and space to breathe, concentrate, to be able to accept the support of someone else.
This summer retreat and professional development program will offer you the possibility to work on yourself, while being updated on contemporary Gestalt therapy theory and to reflect on the application of Gestalt therapy principles to today`s clinical problems.
And of course – to have good food, swim in the Pacific Ocean off Byron Bay, be together and visit the stunning surrounding area.
