Anil Thomas's session for Gestalt Associate course was an enriching experience. His way of explaining and bringing Fritz's teachings in front of us was truly life changing. The activities done in the course was helpful for self and it intrigued me to know more about this approach. The entire team of Anil was extremely co operative and helpful at all times because of which the course was a hassle-free experience. This is a course I would recommend for all to experience at least once.

I was curious to learn Gestalt, since it was one of the source disciplines of where Neuro Linguistic Programming comes from. I wouldn't say "taught", but Anil "initiated" us into Gestalt, would be more apt. The great thing about Anil is as they say "form without form" - he walked us through various simple or sometimes abstract experiential activities, and I later realised how purposefully each had been crafted

Each course with Anil is an experience by itself. His teaching style, his wisdom, knowledge, genuine desire to share this with others is unique and brings rapid transformations in the audience. Learning Gestalt with Anil has added new dimensions to my understanding of human nature and psychology. I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to work on their own inner world as well any professional interacting with others.


Gestalt therapists aim to meet and understand the patient rather than to move the patient in any particular direction. The Gestalt therapy version focuses more on the immediacy of how the patient functions moment-to-moment.

As human beings, we know anything because it gets reflected on our senses - “I know this bag is black because I can see that it is black” or “I know the music is loud because I can hear that the music is loud.”
