About me and my therapy practice

Hello I’m Peter. I'm a Professionally Qualified Therapeutic Counsellor with rooms based in Brecon and Merthyr Tydfil but can also travel dependant on your needs. I work in a relational and collaborative way with you as my client with a Person Centred Approach at the core of my being. Equally I am able to draw on an array of other theoretical approaches and interventions to help facilitate your exploration with the ultimate aim of working in the interest of you, to meet your counselling expectations.

​The thought of coming to counselling can seem a very daunting prospect for many, being it the unknown or how you may perceive the counselling process as a whole. As your counsellor I can assure to offer you a professional, warm, confidential, trustworthy, empathic, non-judgmental, safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings openly with a sense of freedom. I will at all times put your well-being as a priority in supporting you on your journey in whichever way it takes you as my client. People are individuals and experience issues differently, by working with me as your counsellor I am able to accept you for you as a unique person with the potential and hope to grow however you feel you would like to or need to.

The sessional time we collaborate together is your very own time in however you feel best to use it. We can work freely through talk or with a creative aspect, there is no right or wrong as engaging and growing as part of the counselling process is truly a unique individual experience.

I have gained valuable experience in working with adults, children and young people in a school and community environment on an array of presenting issues such as depression, stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, anger, bullying, suicidal thoughts, self-blame and grief and loss to name a few.

As a fully registered member of the BACP I continue to work ethically by working within their ethical framework and abide by their code of ethics in having a duty of care for the well-being of you my client. I am fully insured and hold an up to date enhanced DBS certificate.
