Peter Crowe MA, UKCP reg. Psychosynthesis Psychotherapist and Counsellor
I put the client at the heart of my work ensuring you have a relaxed, supportive and confidential environment in which to explore your feelings and how you're making sense of the world.
My practice engages with a full range of client issues from those that constellate around crisis to those that represent an awakening - particularly since these events are often interrelated. A personal crisis may signal that you are “standing on the threshold” between a habitual way of being, and a new way forward.
My approach draws on the work of Roberto Assagioli, a contemporary of Jung and Freud, who combined Eastern and Western teachings on psychology, philosophy and spirituality, to develop psychosynthesis psychology.
Psychosynthesis is a holistic and integrative psychospiritual psychology, concerned not only with how we manage our problems and alleviate suffering, but also with how we awaken to our life's potential.

Call me or email to get the ball rolling. We can arrange an initial session where we can meet, talk through what you want to get out of counselling and whether I'm the right person for you to work with. This initial appointment is an opportunity to ask questions and ensure a good match between what I offer and your needs and situation. If we agree to continue, set up a series of weekly sessions.
I work with individuals and couples from practice rooms in both Exeter and Bristol..I divide my time between the locations and am flexible around finding a time which can work for you
My standard fee is £45 per hour-long session, however I am willing to discuss concessions.
I was born in Leicester and moved to Devon in 2013. I have spent a number of years living and working in New Zealand, Italy and the USA.
I enjoy an active interest in business coaching, art therapy, systems approaches, eco-psychology, transition towns and ecotherapy. I continue to work as an artist, designer, and teacher.
