Gestalt Psychotherapist & Trainer

About me
Mal Thompson

I am a Gestalt psychotherapist, counsellor, group facilitator and trainer and have been running my private practice for many years. Alongside this I manage a local charity, which specialises in addiction and dependency.

I offer long term open ended Gestalt psychotherapy for individuals, couples and groups. I also offer a short term, brief phase of therapy for those needing to focus on a specific problem or issue.

I also offer long or short term Experiential Gestalt groups for those who want to develop their awareness and experience a creative way of exploring their relationships and issues in a group setting.

I have 9 years experience of running Experiential Gestalt groups, Trauma and the Body workshops and groups for those struggling with alcohol and drug dependency and other addictions.

Groups

Experiential Gestalt Group Weekend

For those who want to experience Gestalt in action. The weekend workshop is appropriate for all, and provides a safe space for you to explore how you relate to yourself and others in a group setting.

Ongoing Therapy Group

This will be an ongoing group that meets for 2 hours once a week at a regular venue. The group is appropriate for all and provides an opportunity for deep therapeutic work and a sense of belonging.

The Embodied Field Workshops

Our lived body is the mediator of our experience with others. Through our senses we create the relational field. These workshops are for professionals who wish to gain more understanding of how to use the body in their work with clients.

Dependency & Addiction from a Gestalt Perspective

These workshops are appropriate for professionals who wish to explore the embodied experience of dependency and need from a Gestalt perspective, whilst developing their creative skills.
