Welcome to my psychotherapy and counselling website:

"Therapy is an investigation of how we function in the world,
and how we can function more in tune with our nature…"


My name is Piotr Mierkowski.

I am a gestalt psychotherapist and senior counselling practitioner. I have over 20 years experience in the NHS, private practice and voluntary sector. I am an accredited member of BACP and UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy). I also supervise counsellors and psychotherapists - qualified and in training.

My clinical work is with individuals and couples. I have an established private practice in North London, N19 - borders of Highgate and Archway. I also offer individual psychotherapy in Gestalt Centre, near Old Street in Central London, EC2.

In addition, I offer couples therapy together with a female co-therapist in Camden Town, NW1. This particular approach is suitable for couples with longstanding difficulties in their relationship who want to explore how problems have arisen and what interferes with changing them. I work with couples whatever their sexual orientation. To find out more about my work with couples visit the Gestalt Practice.


My approach is gestalt therapy.

Gestalt therapy is a creative attitude towards life and personal growth with the emphasis on present experience, contact and awareness that addresses the whole person: mind/body/emotion/spirit.

Acceptance of each person in their unique reality is inherent in my practice. Over the years, I have acquired experience of working effectively with people from diverse cultures, race, social backgrounds, gender and sexualities. I work in collaboration with my clients to increase awareness of their strengths as well as identifying blocks to change, growth and fulfilling relationships.

My clients include individuals who are seeking safe and confidential space to clarify and explore more specific issues, like: relationship difficulties, depression, anger, bereavement and loss, anxiety and panic attacks, sexual concerns and compulsive behaviour, work related stress.

I have considerable experience in providing counselling and psychotherapy to individuals with enduring mental health difficulties and those seeking help on the advice of their GP or psychiatrist for debilitating complaints, including anxiety states, depressive illness, psychosomatic and stress related symptoms.

I work regularly with visual and performing artists, designers, as well as individuals interested in finding satisfying and creative ways of self-expression. Some of my clients face existential concerns and search for meaning in their lives, explore their place in the world and their identity. I have also been providing supportive therapy to mental health professionals for many years. I offer clinical supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists, qualified and in training.

I offer brief therapy when appropriate but I tend to work longer term to facilitate deep and lasting change. I work primarily in English but sessions can also be held in Polish. For information in Polish, please click here.
