Hi. My name is Jutta Pieper and I am a German Gestalt Psychotherapist and a PACT trained couples therapist.
My background is in education and I worked as a teacher for a number of years.
I completed my Gestalt Therapy training in Germany and have been working in private practice as a psychotherapist with couples, individuals and groups since 2006.
For me therapy is about growth, which comes with taking the risk of stepping out of our comfort zones and exploring and showing sides of ourselves that we have put a lid on. Holding the lid in place has usually been a protection at an earlier time in one's life.
