The capacity of the Gestalt coach to be aware of, to understand, and to appreciate clients’ processes is core to Gestalt coaching. Gestalt theory and practice positions awareness as the pivotal transformative agency that ignites change. Gestalt practitioners practice to become “awareness agents," which means using self-data (sensory input) and the present moment (“presence”) in conjunction with external (environmental) data at and/or across different system boundaries (interpersonal, group, organizational, or beyond). Mindful use of self is a signature strength of the awareness agent. This session will provide an overview of the coaching gifts of using one's presence and use of self as an awareness agent to create and implement interventions that assist clients to identify the unaware processes that impact their personal or shared goals, which in turn mobilizes clients’ energy to meet personal and professional challenges.
