Welcome to The Gestalt Centre, celebrating our 41st 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.


This earthshattering year has affected us all, in so many ways.

Here, at the Gestalt Centre, we have experienced challenges, losses and have also embraced opportunities for experimentation, innovation and change as we evolve and grow as an organisation, in the pandemic context.

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 for 2021-22.


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

We at The Gestalt Centre abhor and grieve the murder of George Floyd, and add our voice to the condemnation of all killings where people of colour have suffered the same fate in the USA, in the UK and elsewhere. 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.


The ‘phone line is staffed for enquiries and payments between 8.30am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday.  Therapy rooms may be booked by qualified practitioners from any modality looking for a safe space to see their clients in comfortable rooms that are deep cleaned before and after your booking, during the following times:
