About me

Hi, I'm Pete. I am a counsellor with 10 years experience of working with young people in a busy high school setting. These students have complex needs with a variety of issues.

I have also worked with adults in a humanistic approach to consider change and take control of their own lives.

I offer a relaxed, confidential setting with individuals who are experiencing personal difficulties, helping them overcome their problems and make appropriate changes to their lives.
