Pete Farrugia

Trainee Gestalt Psychotherapist


My academic and practical background explores the intersection of psychosocial wellbeing, spiritual development, and creative expression. I began my studies at Goldsmiths, University of London, where I was an undergrad studying the impacts of culture on identity expression.

I later graduated from the University of Cambridge with a dissertation exploring gender and sexual identity in spirituality, and I am completing my postgraduate studies in Gestalt Psychotherapy. I am also a PhD Candidate at the University of Malta, where I focus on psychosocial outreach to vulnerable youth.

I began my therapeutic training with the GU Clinic (Sexual Health, Mater Dei Hospital), and I have held similar positions with other organisations, including the Emigrants Commission and Integra Foundation, as well as conducting research with the European Commission and Council of Europe.

I am a founding member of Gender Liberation, an NGO that advocates for LGBTIQ rights and support for transgender individuals in particular. I spent four years as an officer in the Secretariat of the President of Malta. During that time, I facilitated diverse workshops and groups on issues of psychosocial wellbeing, as well as writing speeches and gathering research.

I am currently a visiting lecturer with the Faculty for Social Wellbeing, University of Malta, where I lecture on themes of psychosocial education, adolescent psychology, and relational praxis.

Clients come to me with a variety of challenges and issues. At its core, the therapeutic space I offer responds to these concerns with the supportive, collaborative opportunity for self-exploration and inward discovery.
