U.K. | Founder
John founded NGV in 2016 whilst in the third year of a gestalt psychotherapy training. He lives in London, and has a background of working in voluntary and public sector roles and in organisational consultancy. John is a profound believer that those on the margins hold many of the solutions to challenges our societies are only just beginning to grapple with.
As founder of New Gestalt Voices (NGV) I (John Gillespie) came to gestalt via therapy. This helped me see that there was a place for my feelings that did not seem to fit. Gestalt supported me to develop a better connection with my body and emotions, and it helped me to find greater compassion for myself and for others. As I grew, so my consumption patterns changed. I no longer needed the new iPhone as soon as it was released. I eat less meat.
