We are delighted to welcome Dr. Belinda Harris to offer a keynote presentation ‘From Surviving to Thriving in a Time of Austerity’

Belinda is a Gestalt Psychotherapist, Supervisor and Professional Certified Gestalt Coach. She is Assistant Editor of the British Gestalt Journal and an external examiner for Metanoia Institute and the University of Cambridge.
Her belief in applying Gestalt in the world led to her involvement with the Gestalt International Study Center (GISC) as a Professional Associate, and it is evident in her daily work at Nottingham University as Associate Professor of Therapy and Education, and as Director of Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught Courses in the Faculty of Social Sciences.
Belinda’s passion lies in the interface between therapy and education, and how Gestalt can really support vulnerable young people and their families. She is the author of articles published in the BGJ and the book ‘Supporting the Emotional Work of School Leaders’.
Belinda promise to offer a thought-provoking and stimulating opening to our conference, and will then facilitate the afternoon discussion, where invited panelists will be able to share their responses to her presentation.

We are also delighted to invite Billy Desmond, Di Hodgson, Gianni Francesetti, Malcolm Parlett and Beatrix Wimmer to take part in our panel discussion.

We welcome our workshop facilitators:

Dieter Bongers, Guus Klaren, Nurith Levi,   Helen Rowlands,  Tomaz Flajs, Peri Mackintosh, Jan Roubal, Janice Scott, Jon Blend,  Judy Graham, Jenny Colls, James Bailey & Simon Jacobs.
