About the Author

Phil Joyce works in West London as a trainer, supervisor, psychotherapist and consultant and has also worked in a variety of mental health settings since 1979. He has worked as an approved psychiatric social worker in London and has considerable experience of multidisciplinary teams and working with disturbed people. He is a primary tutor on the MSc course in Gestalt Psychotherapy at Metanoia Institute, London and a visiting tutor on the Integrative psychotherapy programme also at Metanoia Institute. He has given many presentations at International conferences over the last 15 years and is an active member of the Gestalt community. Phil’s particular interest continues to be in mental health. He currently specializes in trauma treatment and is an accredited EMDR Supervisor and Consultant. His other abiding interest is in the transpersonal dimensions of human experience and he finds that Gestalt brings a new and enlivening perspective to both these areas of interest.

Charlotte Sills is a UKCP registered psychotherapist in private practice and a supervisor, trainer and consultant in a variety of settings. She has been working in the field of psychological therapies since 1979 and is a BACP senior accredited supervisor, a Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst and a Visiting Professor at Middlesex University. Until 2007 she was also part of the Leadership Team at Metanoia Institute where she remains a member of the faculty. Another interest is in the interface between therapy and coaching and she is a member of faculty of the Masters in Executive Coaching and Professor of Coaching at Ashridge Business School, UK.

Charlotte believes that all human systems – from friendships to organizations – are about people in relationship, and she sees Gestalt as an ideal approach for facilitating effective, vibrant and satisfying  relating.

Charlotte has published widely in the field of counselling and psychotherapy, including An Introduction to Gestalt with Phil Lapworth and Billy Desmond (SAGE, 2012) and Coaching Relationships (edited with Erik de Haan, Libri Press, 2012).



Gestalt therapy is often misrepresented and misunderstood, so I was delighted to read this clear and well-written book. This is an all-inclusive, whistle-stop tour of how to practice contemporary Gestalt. The book guides the reader step by step through the practice, starting with assessment and moving on to creating working alliance, managing risk, undertaking research and many other topics. It is written in simple language, with exercises to engage the reader, alongside examples and case studies. I recommend this as a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about contemporary Gestalt theory and practice.
