Peter’s Background

I have many years’ experience dealing with a wide variety of relationships in various settings.

As well as working across business, finance, publishing and the LGBT+ community, in Canary Wharf and Berkeley Square, I have also practised in NHS Hospitals, HM prison, HIV clinics and The Priory, London. 

My extensive work with HIV clients means I am able to offer psychotherapy, in strictest confidence to those with HIV and/or their relatives, loved ones or friends without any judgement or prejudice.

Peter’s Approach

My sessions bring empathy, understanding, are non-judgemental, and I am respectful of diversity. 

I welcome the fact that these days more men – especially younger men – are seeking therapy, accepting their own vulnerability while learning to manage the many and varied feelings arising from everyday life.

Sessions are conducted in a safe, secure environment and one that is entirely confidential – where you can feel relaxed and open.

I use my integrative training to combine different theories to help treat you. I strive to adopt a holistic view of your experiences both past and present, conscious and unconscious, including relationships, family history and any traumas.

And I am a firm believer in the words of psychiatrist Irvin Yalom, “It’s the relationship that heals”.
