“The Client-Centred and Gestalt approaches work towards helping clients develop a more integrated and whole ‘sense of self’. At the heart of Gestalt therapy is the belief that the more one tries to become who one is not, the more one stays the same. The more one tries to force oneself into a mould that does not fit, the more one is fragmented rather than whole. I value human diversity and am passionate about working within a holistic model and working with my clients to make meaning out of their difficulties and find their individual passion and purpose in life.
Nisarg abides by the ethics of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors.
