Training Program for Gestalt Institute & Relationship Center of New Orleans

Gestalt Institute of New Orleans Training Program


Gestalt Life Coach Training - New Annual Training Begins in September 2017

An entry level program was established in 1975 at The Gestalt Institute of New Orleans to teach the Gestalt Therapy approach to mental health. It was based on the belief that a person most completely learns by being part of an experiential process. Our Gestalt Life Coach trainees learn Gestalt “from the inside out.” We offer a very effective Gestalt Life Coach training program consisting of workshops, lectures, book readings, individual counseling experiences, weekly group participation and the satisfactory completion of a dissertation thesis in the Gestalt field.

To graduate, an approximate 20 to 30 page thesis paper, equivalent multi-media presentation, or pre-approved special project demonstrating understanding of Gestalt, its application and the personal growth experienced by being in the program, is presented near the end of the annual program, to staff members and fellow students.

The course repeated yearly to a fresh group of approved trainees, who complete the 200+ hours required. We invite you to attend in person or webconference, as your schedule permits. The quarterly weekend workshops and the weekly theory classes are presented by our staff members, although fellow graduates and guest faculty members from other institutes are enlisted. The year-round program is open to everyone. No college degrees or prior knowledge of Gestalt are required to attend in whole or part, although candidates are pre-screened for approval.

The general public may attend many of our workshops during the year without participation in our certificate training program. However, if you choose to apply for enrollment in our annual Gestalt Life Coach training program, you may do so by contacting our office. Once approved, there is a $250 non-refundable registration fee. Join us to change your life and the lives of others! by becoming certified as a Gestalt Life Coach!
