Dr. Peter Meades D. Psych (Prof.), MA, MSc, Clin Dip, BSc (Hons), RGN, UKCP reg.
I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist with a broad range of experience in the NHS, in private practice and in the voluntary sector. I'm currently working in the NHS and Private practice and have a Doctorate in Psychotherapy.
As an Integrative therapist I believe different counselling and psychotherapy approaches all have something unique and valuable to offer, so I draw on various theoretical ideas. This means the therapy varies depending on the particular needs of each person.
I take a inclusive, non-pathologising view of gender and sexuality.

Registered / Accredited
