Peter Evans (BACP and BPC registered)
My name is Peter Evans and I am an an experienced psychodynamic counsellor registered with both the BACP and the BPC. I offer open ended counselling and my practice is five minutes walk from Chingford Station.
I have counselled clients who have had struggled with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, loss, bereavement, difficulties with interpersonal relationships, anger, identity issues and lack of confidence. Of course many of these problems are interlinked and frequently people experience more than one of them at a time.
I offer a safe and confidential space where we can explore the issues that are causing you problems. The mind is capable of repetitively generating dramas that are unhelpful and that cause unhappiness.
So, if you are feeling unsupported, anxious, depressed or just stuck and you would like to begin counselling with me then please email me and we can arrange an initial session together that can act as both an introduction and an assessment. During this session we would be able to take a look at some of the the key issues that you are currently struggling with and also ascertain if psychodynamic counselling would suit you. Most likely following this session we could begin weekly counselling sessions. Please feel free to contact me to make initial enquiries.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
British Psychoanalytic Council
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
