This year, which follows the Gestalt Coach/Counselor year, trains to become a Gestalt Therapist. Participants must have completed the basic training (or a recognized Gestalt Methodology Training Course).
To be admitted to module 4, all parts of modules 1 & 2 & 3 must have been completed with a pass. It is also a condition that students work with clients on a regular basis and bring this work in during weekends and in supervision.
During this training you have to start your own practice and, under the supervision of the NSG, you learn to work independently with clients.
After completing this 2-year Gestalt Therapy program, you can already become a member of the Dutch-Flemish Professional Association (NVAGT) as a Gestalt Professional - Coach Counsellor.
Afterward, there is a 4th year for the so-called Accreditation trajectory. The purpose of this is for a Gestalt Therapist to become a certified member of the Dutch/Flemish and European Association for Gestalt Therapy (NVAGT / EAGT).
In this year, a theoretical study is written and the Gestalt way of working with people with complaints with a psychopathological background is explored.
For each student, an individual route is mapped out, including possible additional modules in psychopathology, medical and psychosocial basic knowledge. Depending on the many changes in reimbursement by health insurance companies, your clients may then receive a (partial) reimbursement by the insurance company.
For this Module 4 Year that leads to a Therapist Accreditation:
Total workload: 398 hours,
of which 10 months, 21 training days, 48 day parts, totalling 168 hours
Learning therapy experiences during trainings 50
Theory and methodology (including writing a thesis) 150
Individual (learning) therapy (optional) 10
Independent work with clients 25
NVAGT hours 10

The training trains you to be a Gestalt coach-counsellor. It is intended for people in a work situation, which is in line with the principles of Gestalt therapy.
In order to increase the chances of successful completion of the training, we recommend that those who have not had psychopathology and neuroscience in their training undergo further training.
