Miriam Taylor

Miriam Taylor, MSc., UKCP Registered Psychotherapist.

Miriam Taylor is a Gestalt psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer with many years experience. Her background was in community-based adult education before training as a counsellor and psychotherapist. She is a specialist therapist in a trauma service and works in private practice. She teaches on a freelance basis and has taught in the Gestalt department at Metanoia Institute. Miriam's book "Trauma Therapy and Clinical Practice: Neuroscience, Gestalt and the Body" was published by Open University Press in March 2014.

Why Relational Change? Because I believe fundamentally that meaningful change happens from the bottom up. I have been drawn to the grass roots throughout my career - with individuals, in groups and in organisations. The skills we have as therapists are too valuable to be limited to those who can pay; I strive to make them more accessible to those who need them.



All members of the Relational Change Leadership Team provide their services on a wholly voluntary basis as a commitment to developing relational theory, praxis and the Relational Change Community.

Research Advisor

Michael Clark

Mike Clark, PhD, Research Manager, NIHR School for Social Care Research at the London School of Economics.

Michael’s experience spans academia and health and social care.  He has worked at local, regional and national levels seeking to build stronger ties between research, policy and practice for them to better inform each other.  He states that sometimes this can feel like being sandwiched between different worlds, but always the way to make progress is through good relationships with people which brings their different knowledge and perspectives to a much more informative whole.

It is this primary interest in relationships that underpins his interest in working with Relational Change
