Hypertension is a public health problem and has a multifactorial etiology, including psychological factors. These factors influence the onset of the disease and how patients cope with it. Stress is considered an important predisposing factor for hypertension associated with other risk factors, influencing the cardiovascular reactivity. The objective of this paper is to review the literature on psychological aspects involved in the initiation and maintenance of hypertension, highlighting the stress and the concepts of creative adjustment and neurotic mechanisms of Gestalt therapy, pointing the participation of subjective factors in this process and the importance of the psychologists work with hipertensive patients. Gestalt therapy, while organismic and holistic psychological approach may have important contributions to the understanding of this phenomenon and monitoring of hypertensive patients, favoring processes of expansion of awareness, accountability and creative adjustments.
