John Gillespie

John Gillespie is a Gestalt psychotherapist who trained at the Gestalt Centre in London, the Metanoya Centre and also the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland. While still in training, he founded New Gestalt Voices, an organisation that aims to support the voices of those least likely to be heard in socio-political dialogue, and to bring this into discussion in the Gestalt community. NGV publishes articles and does workshops on the role of power and related oppression in contemporary societies. It is an organisation that strives for non-hierarchicality, promoting the voice of new people, and new themes and approaches within our approach. At the same time, it remains in dialogue with existing currents and themes.

John is a qualified gestalt practitioner and psychotherapist (MA Gestalt Therapy/Diploma in Counselling). He is the founder and chief executive of New Gestalt Voices. He has extensive experience of working with people struggling with early life trauma, loneliness, shame, addictions, relationship difficulties, anxiety/depression, gender/sexuality, grief and life purpose questions.
