Kenneth Meyer, PhD, Psychologist in New York
Has talking-only therapy not worked well for you? If you are looking for an experienced holistic practitioner -- a therapist's therapist -- you have found one. My approach is present-centered, relational and collaborative, informed by understandings drawn from humanistic therapies as well as from spiritual and meditative traditions. This way of working is very interactive and includes methods from Gestalt, Hakomi and Buddhist practices. I have more than 35 years experience in both doing experiential psychotherapy and training other therapists in these methods."
The issues most often addressed in experiential therapy include relationships, life transitions, anxiety, grieving and loss, depression and existential unsatisfactoriness.
I teach and supervise at postdoctoral training programs and am currently president of the NY Institute for Gestalt Therapy, the organization founded by Fritz & Laura Perls. A frequent presenter at international conferences, my writings appear in several anthologies. My private practice includes individual psychotherapy, couple's counseling and supervision of therapists-in-training.
