HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER AS NOGT

 

The National Organization for Gestalt Therapy is the body, that is authorized by EAGT to represent Gestalt Therapy in that country. It is understood as a National Umbrella Organization, structurally and legally independent from any Training Institute. The majority of Training Institutes and individual Gestalt therapists in that country support the National Organization.

 

The NOGT acts as the Professional Organization for its individual members and promotes and supports Gestalt therapy in the country. The NOGT has an official structure, and is officially registered.

 

To become an ordinary NOGT, send a completely filled in application form click here for DOC or PDF and all needed attachments to the office of EAGT. The Chair of NOGT’s will process these files. The decision of accreditation will be taken by the Executive Committee.
