Through eight compelling stories we get to know the Gestalt therapist Vikram Kolmannskog and some of his clients. These include the businessman Carl who is suffering from chronic burnout, the overwhelmed Marianne who believes she may have been the victim of sexual assualt, the trans woman Annette who breaks with dominant gender norms, the prisoner Jonny who is now encircled by his own self-made wall of isolation, and the beautiful Ask, who falls in love and others fall in love with – including the therapist Vikram.

Through these tales of psychotherapy we see how both suffering and healing can occur. With increased awareness and through dialogue we can experience more of ourselves, the other and our world. We become more whole – and that is a good definition of health.

Many will find this book rewarding. Stories about current phenomena in our lives and societies will appeal to a general audience. In addition, the book works as an introduction to Gestalt therapy for all those who are curious. It can also offer new perspectives and knowledge to therapy students and practicing therapists.

Fantastic book for everyone not just people interested in Gestalt Therapy .
The writer has a very interesting way of presenting the data. From a personal perspective to a more distant view the book is a close eye view for the readers.
