What is Full Gestalt?
Founded by Judy Choix, Full Gestalt is a holistic, multidimensional approach to psychotherapy that invites all dimensions of the individual into session. Techniques used facilitate awareness into one’s organic being to engage and integrate the natural wisdom that is already present for transformative healing.
In the "hear and now" of a therapy session, clients gain an embodied awareness of patterns and behaviors of patterns that are no longer serving them. Each of us have an internal set of learned expectations about intimate relationships with ourselves and others. This belief matrix has been encoded in our brain as unconscious memory and in the body as body structure tensions and illness. It is through this multidimensional web of psychological and physical systems that we create the lens in which we perceive and interact in and with the world. It can be said that our environment imposes most of our perceptions on us and that the work of therapy is undoing these "shoulds" so that we can be in touch with our authentic "wants." Becoming alert to energy patterns that move us through life gives us an opportunity to choose rather than be unconsciously directed to movement through life. Our organism becomes more aligned with our thoughts, words and actions.
For thousands of years, before allopathic medicine, indigenous people have relied on tapping into the “energy” field as a way of healing. Making contact with the unseen energy field of a client and facilitating their knowledge of unseen forces is an important part of Judy’s work. This is facilitated in various ways such as energy work, visualizataions, guided meditation, and dreamwork to name a few. Through these modalities, a client has an opportunity to unblock frozen energies and heal past wounds thus freeing energies for greater potential in the present.
