Lin Ren

I am a UKCP registered trainee Gestalt Psychotherapist in my fourth year at Metanoia Institute, with over seven years of experience supporting people in various educational and voluntary settings working with individuals and groups. 


I offer a relational, safe and non-judgemental space to explore what is important. I work with people to raise awareness of what is happening in a mindful way, to recognise patterns and make sense of the situation. In this way, I support and empower my clients to have more freedom and to restore health.


Gestalt Psychotherapy emphasises the creative, dynamic, relational and experimental. To find out more please click here

I offer low-cost weekly therapy at £30 structured into short term (6 -12 weeks) or open-ended sessions. I work in Southville at the Practice Rooms.
