Charisse Peters, BA, Individual, Relationship and Psychosexual Therapy
I am an Integrative counsellor which means I’m trained to draw on a range of therapeutic approaches to meet your particular needs.
My approach is designed to provide an environment in which you will feel at ease, I see us building a good therapeutic relationship as key, you need trust and confidence in order to share the difficulties you are facing. I offer a warm and authentic space to support you through the challenges you face in a non-judgement way.
I will help you gain insight into your thoughts and feelings and together we can look at new ways of approaching those difficulties. As your therapist I aim to help you change the aspects of your life that are preventing you from living in a more fulfilling way. My aim is to help you find the way to exist that is truly right for you. Together we can try and establish the themes in your life that maybe influencing the way you relate to yourself or your partner.
Relationships form an integral part of our lives, most of us want to be in intimate, supportive and satisfying relationships. I work with heterosexual, same sex couples, monogamous, polyamorous and open. I support those experiencing relationship and psychosexual difficulties, which may stem from longstanding past problems or more recent changes.
I believe finding a therapist who is the ‘right fit’ for you is an integral part of a successful counselling relationship. It’s for this reason I offer a 15min free telephone consultation to all new clients, to enable you to decide if my style and approach feels like a good match for you.
