Diploma training at EGI is regulated by GPTI and UKCP. The EGI training leads to the GPTI Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy, following completion of four years training and subsequent requirements which normally require at least a further two years  (see the prospectus for full details). GPTI is a Member Organisation of the UKCP, and it prepares trainees to apply for professional accreditation and UKCP registration. The GPTI training handbook can be downloaded here.

We welcome enquiries and applications from people with relevant graduate level professional experience and/or transferable life experience and ability. We will help you to assess and accredit your prior experience/learning and prepare you to join the training. We welcome applicants who have the potential and interest to develop professionally and we strive to make the training accessible. Trainees from a range of backgrounds and countries have benefitted from the EGI programme, bringing valued diversity and depth.

If you have previous gestalt training then we recognise and will accredit prior experience and learning. Please contact us to discuss entry into the existing diploma. You can download a form for accreditation of prior experience and learning here. For example: If you have completed any professional gestalt training in the UK or other country then this route is usually very straightforward.

Gestalt psychotherapy is existential, holistic, relational and embodied, and is underpinned by coherent and wide-ranging theoretical and ethical disciplines. The training is rigorous and is based on learning about awareness and the skilful use of self in relationship for the growth of the client. It is taught by extensive practical creative exploration, reflecting and understanding in depth on what is effective in psychotherapy and integrating theory as part of personal and professional preparation for working as a psychotherapist.
