About me and my therapy practice

My name is Peter I a qualified Person Centred Therapist, I have trained and have exposure to many of the main therapeutic approaches; Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), I aim to provide an approach that is unique for each person, embracing their individual needs. valuing their uniqueness, their individual belief systems or cultural background.

I have worked extensively with people with addiction problems, also I have worked in a college environment experiencing working with young adults presenting a variety of life issues. I work as an in house counsellor for a funeral parlour, during my work at the college I have been able to work with many members of the LGBTQ community, these are just a few of the areas I have been trained in or had exposure to.

Practice description

Sometimes in life, we find ourselves in a place, where our coping strategies or abilities to manage in life are no longer working and those close to us are unable to help. We need someone who is not part of our lives to listen to us and more importantly, hear us; to help us to see things from a different perspective, to help us work things through and gain a sense of ourselves again.

I have experience in working with clients suffering from anxiety, depression, addiction, self-esteem issues, bereavement and panic disorders.

My aim is to give you a safe, discreet and confidential space to enable you freely to explore your thoughts and feelings, in your time, at your pace away from the rigour and breakneck speed of life.

30 years ago I made a life changing decision to engage with a therapist to help with my own issues, that decision has had a lasting positive impact to my life, it was in fact life changing. This led to my own personal journey into therapy, allowing healing and ongoing growth, this culminated in my decision to train as a therapist. I am the owner of many very extreme life experiences, working through these with a therapist are the basis of my emotional stability and emotional wellness, these experiences are my bedrock for being non judgmental to all.

My first session

Before we agree to work together I will always have a 15 minute zoom session (no charge) so clients can ask questions, get a "feel" for the process and get a "feel" for me.

It is important that clients are "sure" when choosing their therapist, its a big decision, so time needs to be taken when making this choice.
