About me

My name is Peter Evans and I am an experienced counsellor registered with the BACP and the BPC. I have twelve years experience as a counsellor and I have also practiced as a pharmacist for over 30 years. I have therefore been working in the caring professions for some considerable time.

I offer both brief and long-term counselling and my practice is just a five minute walk from Chingford Station. For the moment however my consultations are only taking place remotely via telephone or Zoom.

I have counselled clients suffering from a wide range of emotional difficulties over the years including: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, eating disorders and unmanaged anger. These clinical presentations are of particular interest to me as a psychodynamic counsellor. 

Psychodynamic counselling uses an analytic approach to identify and address those aspects of how we relate that are not necessarily apparent to us but that are largely ingrained, frequently counterproductive and sometimes destructive. 

I offer a safe and confidential space in which you can get to know yourself better and make some changes if you wish.

Please telephone or email me if you wish to ask any questions regarding therapy or to arrange an initial consultation. There is no charge for the initial consultation and it is an opportunity for us to meet and to take a preliminary look at the difficulties that you are facing. Please telephone 07972098163 or email peter.evans93@btinternet.com.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.

BPC

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.
