Gestalt-therapy is propose as a method of psychological treatment, interventions, counselling and psychotherapy in cancer treatment. By looking at the human being as a totality, this approach provides the opening of conscience to individuals so that they do not see themselves only like sick persons and understand the implications caused by this experience, developing creative adjustments and expanding contact with themselves, with the world and with their own sickness. The health-disease process is considered in this article as a complex process. It reflects upon the importance of the psychologist in all the way to health, as an agent that mediates the individual relationship with the illness, based on the paradigms of Health Psychology and Oncology Psychology.

Keywords : Gestalt-Therapy; Health Psychology; Oncology Psychology; Oncology; Health-Disease.
