Gestalt Psychotherapy and Coaching for Relationships provides psychotherapists and coaches with a thorough understanding of two-person dynamics and offers practical interventions for working with couples and with two-person teams within larger organizations. Part I of this text relates contemporary gestalt therapy theory and gestalt-based coaching to developments in phenomenology, hermeneutics, cognitive science, extended cognition, embodiment, and kinesthesiology. Through a variety of narratives, Part II builds upon these themes and examines issues that typically emerge during couples work, including infidelity, provocative language, asymmetric relationships, sex, the use of emotion, limits and boundaries, and spirituality. Also included are general strategies for assimilating coaching into psychotherapy and vice versa, as well as recommendations for further study.

"This book is an original contribution that focuses on a specific topic: the support for dyadic relationships, both from the perspective of coaching and of psychotherapy. It is a bright journey that refreshes the basis of Gestalt therapy theory and practice. Philip Brownell is not only deeply rooted in the theoretical explorations but also in the ongoing dialogue that is developing in the international community of researchers and practitioners. The live examples and vignettes are particularly helpful in clarifying the differences between coaching and therapy."
Gianni Francesetti, Gestalt Therapy Trainer, Istituto di Gestalt HCC Italy, Associate Member, New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy

"Philip Brownell is a major contributor to gestalt therapy. Here he describes, in a practical way, how this relational approach can be applied to the context of two-person relationships to transform the conventional individualistic paradigm. Scientific and philosophical issues are presented in a conversational style, including personal reflections. The reader is drawn into a journey where the contents are integrated with a "something more", which helps to see your own relationships with a transcendent eye."
Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb, Director, Istituto di Gestalt HCC Italy

"This book by a master gestalt therapist uniquely integrates relational contemporary gestalt therapy with both couples counseling and the specific skills of coaching. The breadth of his study includes philosophy, spirituality, and psychology. This results in a synergy that intensifies our understanding of these approaches and opens doors to new considerations of relationality. "ã
Dan Bloom, JD, LCSW, psychotherapist, faculty, New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy
