Live fully with Gestalt psychotherapy

Gestalt psychotherapy for individuals and couples in a calm, comfortable and private setting

Welcome, and thank you for visiting.

Hello, I'm Kate Upshall, a UKCP Accredited Gestalt Psychotherapist and Relational Supervisor based in Todmorden, West Yorkshire.

I am passionate about the benefits of Gestalt therapy, and its potential to support us all to live an authentic, satisfying life. I have been practising therapy since August 2016, and opened my private practice in January 2018.

I have a background in mental health and wellbeing roles within the voluntary sector, including a national homelessness charity, and a charity for adults with acquired brain injury. I'm also a qualified and experienced Art and Design teacher. If you would like to use art materials in your sessions I would enjoy incorporating them. Gestalt is a flexible and creative therapy, and together we can find methods and materials that work for you.

I completed my core training at the Edinburgh Gestalt Institute. I'm a member of the Gestalt Psychotherapy Training Institute and UKCP, and subscribe to their codes of ethics.

UKCP: 2011166258

I hold a Masters degree in Occupational Psychology, and am a member of the British Psychological Society.

BPS: 206066

What is Gestalt Psychotherapy?

Gestalt is a relational, embodied psychotherapy, which offers the possibility of growth and change through an accepting, respectful and supportive relationship with your therapist. You may be dealing with challenges such as anxiety or depression, the impact of past experiences or trauma, difficulties in relationships, a period of transition or change in your life, sense of self or identity, grief or loss. Or perhaps you're interested in finding a new direction or meaning in your life. Together we will develop greater awareness and understanding of your situation and your self, and what the next steps might be for you.

I'm trained to work with individuals and couples over the age of 18.

I hold a Certificate in Relational Supervision, and I'm currently working towards the Diploma in Relational Supervision.


60 minute sessions cost £55 for individuals and £70 for couples.

I review prices annually.

I offer a free initial consultation, which is an opportunity for us to meet and discuss how Gestalt therapy might be helpful for you

at this time, and whether I am the right therapist.

I also offer Relational Clinical Supervision for £55 per hour.


I work in-person from a central location in Todmorden, West Yorkshire within easy reach of Hebden Bridge, Halifax, Rochdale, Huddersfield and Manchester, and via video conference. I offer 60 minute sessions on a weekly basis.
