Dear friends and colleagues,

As we enter 2023, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to you for being part of our EAGT community.

2022 was another year of many sudden, unexpected events, a time of uncertainty, fear, but also hope for each of us.

Unfortunately, the expected and hoped-for peace and return to the old, pre-pandemic life is still not possible. Perhaps experiencing rapid cycles of change is our new here and now.This year has also been very difficult for many of us personally, whether through illness, the death of loved ones or other challenging events in our lives......Read on

Letter to EU Commission 

To: President von derLeyen, EU Commission, Mr Charles Michel, President of the EuropeanCouncil, MsParaskeviMichou, Directorate-General for EuropeanCivilProtection and HumanitarianAid, Mr Janez Lenarčič, CommissionerCrisis management, EU Member States

Athens, August 17th. 2020


The European Association for Gestalt Therapy (EAGT) and its Human Rights and Social Responsibility Committee closely follows the dramatic developments in Belarus. We are deeply shocked at the violation of human rights, democratic principles and the violence and torture by the Belarus ‘government against its own inhabitants. The current crisis resulting from the total falsification of the election results is a horrible low point for 26 years of dictatorship in the person of Alexander Lukashenko.

Message From EC 
As the world is turned upside down at least here in Europe and beyond, we want to connect with you as a sign of stability and continuity.
EAGT has been founded to support each other and to connect Gestalt colleagues around the world.
What is needed now is a big capacity for creative adjustments to the situation that neither of us has ever experienced before. Our societies, personal relations to friends and families as well as the heart of our modality – personal contact- to our clients seem to be disrupted.
The situation in different European countries and beyond is quite different, but still all of us are affected and have to adjust to new forms of contact by being distant and at the same time connected.

Stay well, take care of yourself and by this also of others, 
With warm wishes until we can be in the presence of each other again,
The EC of EAGT
