Peter Hutt (MBACP) Registered Counsellor. Weekdays, Evenings & Weekends
Due to Coronavirus I am currently only working online (Skype or Zoom) or over the phone.
I am a Person Centred Counsellor, so our sessions will not be about me or my personal opinions, they will be about what is best to help you. My aim is to provide the right conditions for you to feel able to discuss anything you want, safely and without being judged. However, I am not simply a passive listener, I will at times be more active in our sessions, bringing suggestions or experiences into the room if I feel they may may benefit you.
A good relationship between client and therapist is an essential aspect of effective therapy, so I offer a low cost initial 50 minute session (just £20) with no obligation, so that you can decide whether I am the right counsellor for you.
Perhaps you find it hard to cope with difficult feelings such as Anxiety, Depression, Anger, Loss or Work Stress. It could be you have suffered a Bereavement, have Relationship Issues or you're feeling a loss of Self-Belief, Low Self-Esteem or just feeling sad
If you have a problem with Alcohol, Drugs, Gambling or any obsession/addiction my personal experience of addiction and recovery gives me a deep understanding of addictive behaviour, its underlying causes and all of the issues that surround it.
You may have suffered trauma or past abuse. Perhaps you feel that you are not 'good enough' or you have an underlying sense of 'impending doom' that wont go away... It could be that you just seem to have a constant feeling that something isn't quite right.
I will meet with you in a safe, calm, comfortable environment and whatever it is that is troubling you, I will listen to you with empathy and without judgement. Together we can explore your worries, thoughts and emotions freely.
Drawing on my extensive training, work and personal experience, I can help you with any difficult issues. We can explore any obstacles, choices and aspirations - whether they are current problems of a practical nature or repetitive cycles from your past - that affect your daily life.
Together we would work towards strengthening your inner resources and confidence, enabling you to see a more positive way ahead.
Whatever it is that you are finding difficult to cope with in your life, I can help you.

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.
