Elo Mets Trainee Gestalt Psychotherapist London E8

Elo Mets:

Trainee Gestalt Psychotherapist

My name is Elo Mets, I am a trainee psychotherapist working in the low-cost therapy and counselling service at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, London E8.

I’m currently studying at Metanoia Institute, London, MSc programme in Gestalt Psychotherapy, in my 3rd year of studies.

What I love about Gestalt is that as much it is a modality of Psychotherapy, it is also a way of life, a way of being, living in the here-and-now, trusting the process, living a life that is creative, authentic, vital, purposeful and courageous.

Through Gestalt Psychotherapy I can help you to gain bigger awareness of your senses, emotions, of one’s life, way of thinking and perceiving, relating to others, of one’s motives of action, to gain a better understanding of your real wants and needs.

I believe that a person is the specialist of one’s own life, the only one who can give meaning to one’s life, as a therapist can only be a guide to help to see the issues from different points of view, to find the right answers which all lie within ourselves. I do believe that all people are good by their nature, sometimes they are simply stuck in some behavioural patterns which don’t serve them any longer.

As a therapist, I’m considered to be very gentle, non-judgemental, caring, compassionate, supportive, attentive. I have been told by my clients that they have a feeling of really being heard and held, and feel my warm presence. I encourage my clients not only to talk about but to feel and sense, to leave rationale to the side for a while, to explore and discover new sides, aspects through creative activity, through bodily movement together with the clients.

So far I have had good experiences with people with anxieties, fears, depressive moods, but also with people deflecting from their emotions and real needs.

My background:
I live in Estonia but come over to London for 5 days every month due to my ongoing studies. So most of the time I hold my meetings online, but on average one Friday each month I would be happy to meet with clients in London face to face.

Recently I have completed both a BA and an MBA in Economics. I have more than 10 years of experience working with people in bigger and smaller organisations and groups. My personal life has provided me with many challenges and lessons which have helped me to grow as a person and have taught me to accept people the way they are at that certain moment.

I’m a member of the UKAGP (UK Association for Gestalt Practitioners).
