  • He and Marianne Fry set up a training course in Gestalt methods in the South West of England.
  • He co-founded the Gestalt Psychotherapy and Training Institute with Petruska Clarkson.
  • He is in particular the founder of the British Gestalt Journal and was its editor for 15 years. In his editorial role he gave the journal its international reach.
  • He initiated the first Gestalt colloquia in the UK with Richard Tillett.
  • He contributed to the setting up of the annual “Marianne Fry” conferences.
  • With Trevor Bentley and Sue Congram he set up a training program for gestalt intervention in organizations.
  • He was for a long time a visiting professor at the University of Derby in Great Britain where he taught Gestalt Therapy. He also did a lot of work with the students, especially in their writing work.

He is currently in semi-retirement as a trainer and coach. He lives in Totnes, Devon and is regularly invited to give seminars in Norway and Spain.

Malcolm Parlett has always worked steadfastly to create the optimum conditions for the creativity and curiosity of each of his students and trainees to flourish.
He is particularly famous for his 1991 article “Reflections on Field Theory” ((British Gestalt Journal, Vol1/2) which put field theory back at the heart of gestalt theoretical thinking.

His concern for a better world was recently translated into the publication of his book: FUTURE SENSE: Five Explorations of Whole Intelligence for a World That’s Waking Up, Troubador, 2015.
