Rowan Gray

Trainee Gestalt Psychotherapyist

Approach and background

We can all feel stuck in our lives at times including finding ourselves repeating patterns of behaviour that although are impacting negatively on our mental health we cannot seem to change. As a Gestalt Psychotherapist I can help unlock these behaviours, by helping you understand the underlying issues driving these behaviours and find new healthier ways of living your life.

Likewise, you might need help processing a difficult life event such as a divorce, the death of a loved one or a traumatic experience.   

My approach as a therapist is to help you build awareness by shining a light on what is going on for you. Through my training as a psychotherapist, and alongside my own journey, I have come to see increased awareness as central to the process of healing and positive change. This is because deepening our awareness offers us fresh perspectives and creates new possibilities.

I believe strongly in the importance and value of working collaboratively. This means I see myself as an equal partner in the quest to help you find your own personal answers. I always work to find solutions that work for you and your specific context.

Training, qualifications, and experience

Additionally, to working in private practice, I work in the NHS as a Counsellor where I support a wide range of people, including those with complex difficulties and mental health conditions. Some common problems I help my NHS clients with include the processing of traumatic life events, coping with phases of significant life transitions, and understanding and working through the complexities underlying problems with depression and anxiety.  

I am working towards an MSc in Gestalt Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute in London. I am in my fourth of five years of study. I am a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and UK Association for Gestalt Practitioners (UKAGP) whose codes of ethics I abide by.
