Peter uses an integrative approach to his counselling, which incorporates Person Centred, Gestalt, Existentialism, CBT and Psychodynamic approaches. He has also studied counselling for children & young people, working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and people suffering with depression.
A strong believer that all good therapy comes from the therapeutic alliance that is built up between counsellor and client, Peter feels deeply about being able to accept the client for the person they are, without judgement or prejudice, meeting them as an equal and working together towards a positive outcome for the client.
Peter also works for the Suffolk and Norfolk wellbeing services, on behalf of the NHS. He is also available to work with clients in Cambridgeshire. A member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, (BACP) Peter follows their code of ethics.
Peter’s passion in counselling is driven by the belief that by being there for people, listening and investing time in them, we can help each other better understand our lives and relieve the pain that can hold us back from being the people we wish to be.
Before joining the JHD training team, Peter spent many years facilitating and training groups for an engineering company. This involved teaching their employees to work collaboratively as a small, medium or large group. Peter has also helped train volunteers for a nationwide charity who work with vulnerable people of all ages which has fuelled his desire to train future counsellors.
