Our Study Program
A good score reader is not a good musician. Knowing the rules of the game does not make you a good player. Our training focuses on "mastering" the theory and "physically appropriating" the methodology. Metaphorically speaking, we are an Academy for the Fine Arts of Experiencing and Connecting. Like a conservatoire, we want to preserve something essentially human and pass it on to the next generation.
One of the four institutes in the Netherlands that are accredited by the European Association of Psychotherapy EAPTI
The NSG has been offering Gestalt training since 1972. A three-year program in Gestalt methodology and personal discovery, to Coach/Counselor as well as an additional one-year program in Gestalt Therapy leading to an accredited EAP Therapist Diploma. Since 2009, the NSG offers through NVAGT and EAGT the opportunity to obtain accreditation for therapists. For example, you can be reimbursed by Dutch and International Insurance if you decide to start your own successful practice. For more information on admission requirements and curriculum, please contact us.
With our training, we meet the requirements that health insurers in the Netherlands set for therapists who want to be reimbursed by complementary insurance. The guideline is to have higher professional education (HBO/ BA) degree in humanities and a four-year post-HBO professional training in a therapy modality, such as the one we provide at the NSG Academy.

"Learning is the discovery that something is possible. We are using most of our energies for self-destructive games, self-preventing games. We prevent ourselves from growing the very moment something unpleasant, something painful comes up. At that moment we become phobic, we run away, we desensitize ourselves. Neurotic suffering is suffering in imagination, suffering in fantasy."
