I am a Gestalt Psychotherapist with background training & experience in
Bodymind therapy. I offer Individual or Group Gestalt Therapy in London,
UK (London near Old Street, EC1, N1).
I first qualified in 1984 and have been working with clients in Individual
Therapy for over 30 years. The Individual Gestalt Therapy work I offer
includes both ongoing longer term therapy ( Psychotherapy ) and short
term therapy ( counselling ).
I have been facilitating Experiential / Gestalt therapy groups for over 25 years,
both privately and for various training courses. Currently I facilitate an ongoing Gestalt
therapy group in Central London . This group has been meeting weekly (40+ weeks per year)
for over 15 years. You can find some information about my approach to therapy /
psychotherapy in the "What is Gestalt Therapy ?" section of
Training & Experience
My personal therapy experience ranges over a period of 39 years
and includes extensive experience of Humanistic Psychotherapy
approaches to personal development ( Gestalt , Neo-
Co Counselling, Encounter, Primal Therapy, and Person Centred Therapy.).
Working with children, as a Residential Social Worker stimulated my
own development. From the mid 1970's onward I worked intensively
with Encounter, Primal Therapy and Neo Reichian therapy in a self help
therapeutic community, in Individual & Group Therapy and Training
Weekends (Reciport Co Counselling with Glyn Seaborn Jones).
Later I trained in Bodymind Therapy, a synthesis of Bio-
Gestalt and Primal therapies, qualifying in 1984 (Dip ABT).
After a further four or five years training in Gestalt Therapy I graduated
from the Gestalt Centre London in 1989.
I also hold a Dip. H.E. Humanistic Psychotherapy by Independent
Study (1988). This included a focus on collaborative group work
and two year membership of a Person Centred Therapy study group.
Along with these therapy approaches I also have experience of
more quiescent approaches that also promote insight and personal
development ( Insight Meditation, Relaxation Techniques, use of Imagery ).
I have had some interest & experience in exploring the interface between
therapy and meditation practice: in 1981 I undertook the classic three-
Primal Intensive combined with a period of extended Vipassana meditation
practice. Insight (Vipassana) Meditation was a regular part of my life for some
years. I return to it in an informal way, finding that it complements my Gestalt practise.
Like many Humanistic Psychotherapists I believe that ongoing
supervision and my own personal development work are important, providing
support and stimulation for my work as a therapist.
From 1993 to Autumn 2010 (17 years) I was a UKCP registered Gestalt
(Individual & Group) Psychotherapist.
For 24 years (1993 to Autumn 2017 I was a Full Member of UKAHPP
Accredited as a Gestalt Therapist (Individual & Group).
I continue to work with Individual Clients and Gestalt Therapy
In preparation for retiring from practise I intend to stop
taking on new long term Individual clients sometime in 2023.
