Peter M Smith
If we always do what we have always done we will always get the same results. I offer you a place in which we can consider other options, other choices....
I will meet you in a safe and private environment within my own home.
The time available is yours alone. Your opportunity to perhaps explore aspects of your life to date which have caused you anxiety or a sense of "stuckness".
This exploration can take several forms... face to face talking, artwork, storytelling, dreamwork, meditation...
I am confident that we can work in the manner you find easiest.
You can tackle and break unhelpful patterns of behaviour, gain acceptance for past actions or perhaps gain a greater spiritual insight.
I will offer you that space for as long and often as you require it. For some this will mean a weekly session whilst others find that a less frequent appointment fits their busy lifestyle.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied at the University of Chichester where I gained a BA in Humanistic Counselling. I have several years of working within the field of substance misuse and relationship issues.
Through my private practice and ongoing training I have gained a wealth of experience working with issues of loss, gender identity and self-acceptance.
As a result of my journey to date I consider myself working within the Transpersonal field of therapy, I am passionate about making sense of the manner in which we individually attempt to function alongside others in this fascinating and complex world.
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.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
In the belief that counselling should be made available to as many people as possible I operate a sliding scale of fees ranging from £35.00 to £55.00 per session depending upon your financial situation.
I have good availability throughout the daytime, most evenings up to 8:00pm and weekends.
