Anxiety, depression, loss of confidence or grief, these are just some of the ways in which our experience of life can be adversely impacted. Hello my name is Peter and I believe I have an intuitive sensitivity for my client’s emotional world which helps me to understand their thoughts and feelings, this in turn creates a strong connection between us that gives my client the confidence to share those important thoughts and feelings and together we can work to move forward. Sometimes we can experience problems, emotional difficulties and may not know why or understand what is happening, but we know things are not quite right.

If you're reading this, you're curious about what therapy can do for you. You might have issues with relationships, communication, family, self-worth, body image, mood, eating or sleep, or you might just be feeling vaguely disconnected and don't know why. You might want to be able to make sense of what you feel, why you feel the way you do and then know what to do about it. One thing is for sure - you'll learn a lot about yourself in therapy - how you got here, what you need, how to take care of yourself.

Relationship is key to building a safe and compassionate space to work in. I enjoy working with people who want to increase their knowledge of themselves so they can understand what is going on for them and be able identify why issues arise and with that knowledge be able to react differently where appropriate. I work with an integrative model using a number of theories however these are adapted to the needs of each individual client as each client has their own individual needs.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably starting to think about how working with a counsellor or psychotherapist can help you. When thinking about working with a private therapist, people often wonder how many sessions will I have or can I afford, or will I feel comfortable working with this person? Can I work in a short-term way that will help me? Increasingly, research says if sessions are focused and goals are shared, then yes. I support people according to their particular needs, issues and goals whether this is short term focused work, or longer, more open ended exploration.

Do you feel stuck, anxious or overwhelmed? Perhaps panic, worry, lack of confidence or low self esteem is having a negative effect on your life. I understand how this may cause you to feel isolated and alone, perhaps you have tried to express how you feel with loved ones, or you may feel unable to find the words. I realise how important it is for you to find a counsellor that you feel comfortable with and how this is a big first step toward's improving your situation.

Hello and a warm welcome, I believe our emotional well-being is the key to living a fulfilling life and that we are beyond our struggles so that when life throws up its inevitable challenges, it is how we deal with these, there is always a way forward. My underpinning belief is that having a different experience of life is available to all of us and that our present day issues have origins in the past and so unravelling the threads of our mis-learning about ourselves and the world can help us to live more comfortably and happily in the present.

If you're looking on this site then I'm guessing that there is either a crisis in your life or you have been feeling unhappy, depressed or anxious for some time. Sometimes when we're in the middle of a situation, feeling depressed or anxious, it isn't always easy to see what the difficulty is or gain a perspective on events and relationships. Talking to someone who has no personal 'agenda' or involvement can help you to gain a clearer perspective and identify behaviour patterns that are unhelpful or damaging to yourself and your relationships.
