The article is the authors’ attempt to give qualitative analysis of a psychologist-consultant’s work with the rejected parts of a client’s “self” within the framework of Gestalt-consultation. The authors define Gestalt-consultation as a method of consultation, which enlarges a person’s self-perception and makes it possible to integrate different experiences into the holistic image of “self”. That results in the improvement of the client’s contact with the surrounding world. The article shows that the aim of a phenomenological Gestalt-study is modeling the client’s field of perception in such a way that the characteristic manifestations of the reality to become obvious, as well as to make a clear understanding of the situation under study. The projection is described as a mechanism of rejecting the undesirable aspects of a personality. The article is conditionally divided into two parts: 1) the theoretical aspects of the image of “self” within the framework of Gestalt-consultation; 2) the description and the analysis of some session fragments during which the client’s rejected parts of “self” are perceived.

Key words

image of “self”, phenomenology, the concept of polarities, system of contacts, contact boundary, introjection, projection, integration
