Therapists, coaches, and facilitators in human development need to access resources and insight that may not be readily available in the client's current awareness. The Gestalt approach has unique and specific ways to develop and illuminate these hidden resources by working with dreams, fantasies, stories, and symbols – things that are part of everyone’s experience. These can be like tightly packed treasure boxes that reveal jewels hidden in plain sight. The Gestalt approach offers many ways to unpack these rich sources of meaning.
