Nives Vrečič Lorbek:


I am a Sigmund Freud University (SFU in Vienna, Austria) graduate and trained Gestalt psychotherapist from Slovenian Gestalt Institut Gita. During the following years, I trained and have been studying with various Gestalt theoreticians and practitioners from different Institutes in and outside of Europe, mostly with body focused Gestalt psychothrapist and movement teachers (Ruella Frank, Jim Kepner, Julianne Appel Opper …). I have been particularly interested in Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy (graduated from Center for Somatic Studies 2011 and 2018).


I have been practicing Gestalt therapy in private practice in Ljubljana, Slovenia since 2011. Prior I worked for many years (1998-2011) in Association »Projekt Človek/Projekt Man«(Programm for therapy, psychotherapy and social rehabilitation of people with different kind of addictions and other severe psychological disturbances).


I have been integrating somatic and developmental perspectives within my therapy practice.

I am a committed embodied practitioner, phenomenologist, explorer with a particular interest in expressive form and early development.

I have been a member of the Gestalt Association Sloges since 2004, member of AAGT since 2012 and member of EAGT since 2018.


I offer individual and group psychotherapy, body and movement oriented workshops and teaching somatic approach within Gestalt psychotherapy.
