Welcome to The Gestalt Centre, celebrating our 42nd year as the UK’s foremost provider of training in Gestalt: an enlightening and life-changing approach to counselling and psychotherapy.

Based in Camden, London, our part-time programmes, short courses and events are made for the here and now. We can prepare you for a career in counselling or therapy, accelerate your professional development or simply inspire a positive new perspective on people, relationships and life.


We are seeking to appoint a tutor to the second year of our BACP Accredited Diploma in Counselling. If you are an accredited BACP member with minimum 3 years’ post accreditation experience or an accredited UKCP member with a minimum 3-year post registration, we would welcome your application.

Please send your CV and a covering email to our Executive Centre Manager, Jacqueline Wearn, at jacqueline@gestaltcentre.org.uk


We’re looking for new Trustees! You would be on board with what we’re about and what we do and at this time we are particularly looking for people with experience of financial management and accounting especially in the not for profit or social enterprise sector.

We are interested in working towards having a more diverse and inclusive board and therefore welcome applications from people in underrepresented groups.

To find out more and for a role description, contact us at enquire@gestaltcentre.org.uk or 020 7383 5610


This has been an extraordinary year, with the pandemic giving rise to a growing need for emotional and psychological support. At the Gestalt Centre, we are expanding our professional development programme of short courses, for practitioners working in the field emotional and psychological health, to further support them and their clients.

If you are Gestalt trained and are interested in delivering a short course or workshop on any of the themes below:

Working with:

  • children
  • adolescents
  • experiences of domestic violence and related power/abuse issues
  • diversity, inclusion, unconscious bias and awareness of systemic issues
  • intense dreams
  • heightened anxiety, fear and distress

or any other subject that could be equally helpful for practitioners, please do get in touch by contacting Archibald Rotap at assistant.admin@gestaltcentre.org.uk or on 020 7383 5610



The earthshattering year in which the pandemic took hold affected us all in so many ways.

We experienced challenges and losses but have also embraced opportunities for experimentation, innovation and change as we evolve and grow as an organisation.

Our 2019-20 Annual Review presents an overview of our experience and main activity in the first few months of the pandemic as well as our priorities moving forward.


We at The Gestalt Centre add our voice to the condemnation of racism in all its manifestations. As a therapy and training organisation, we strive to keep recognising the depth to which racism exists, in each of us and in our institutions and social structures. We work to support the undoing of the impact of racism for all communities. We understand that this undoing is an essential component in promoting the mental and emotional health of all peoples. We strive to develop our capacity to instil through training and practice the essential right to self-determination. We believe that therapy must include supporting people to live life to the fullness of their capacity and to enable fulfilment of their potential – by choice.
