Introduces the cyclic nature of all experience as it is understood in Gestalt terms. Reports on the author′s opinion that in training people in counselling skills to help individuals deal with being made redundant, it is useful to use the idea of a cycle of human experience. This helps practitioners understand the different phases and reactions of individuals to major life events such as redundancy, and also to locate different counselling skills at different points of the cycle.
