The British Gestalt Journal

The British Gestalt Journal is an international peer-reviewed journal independently published for the Gestalt community.  Two issues a year have been produced since its inception in 1991.  I took over as editor from Malcolm Parlett in 2007.  Together with assistant editors Katy Wakelin and Belinda Harris and other helpers, we work as a team to bring the journal out on a regular basis. 

The BGJ publishes articles, reports, interviews, news and information on all aspects on all aspects of Gestalt theory and practice including organisational development as well as psychotherapy.  Over the years a number of seminal articles have been published, which have significantly contributed to the development of Gestalt theory. 

All the contents of back issues are listed on the BGJ website, along with information on submitting and reviewing articles.  We particularly welcome and support new writers.  Subscriptions can be taken out online and back issues can be ordered from the production editor Caroline Hutcheon at

The BGJ website hosts a useful article by Malcolm Parlett “What is Gestalt?’’, which is a useful place to start for people new to Gestalt and interested in learning more.
