The term ‘Gestalt’was first used by the psychologist Christian von Ehrenfels
in 1890 to explain how the whole is more than the sum of its parts. The Gestalt
approach today is a practice based on holistic therapies. It aims to help people
and systems understand and see the whole of what’s going on, so that they can
begin to move towards change.
