Gestalt therapy offers so much for working with sleep issues. To mention some:
• Understanding the sleep problem in the context of the non-sleeper’s personal history & social environment • Identifying potential self-sabotage attitudes and behavior regarding sleep
• Using creative arts as an aid to understanding the sleep problem as an expression of the problematic sleeper • Contemplation and meditation for the moments of sleeplessness
• Making sleep choices - from helplessness to creative adjustment
• Looking forward to your dreams & dream work for sleep.
