transpersonal

- therapy can be intra-personal (analysis of internal conflicts), interpersonal (study of relationships established between people) or transpersonal (taking into account the collective unconscious and the esoteric ties which link the human race with the cosmos). Gestalt favors any one of these dimensions or all three at once, - depending on the individual style of the therapist and the particular needs of the client.
