About me

"Only when we can be who we truly are rather than striving to be the person others think we should be, can we honestly be at peace." (anon)

Hello my name is Steven and I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist qualified to degree level with a registered enhanced DBS certificate working within private practice.

There could be many reasons why you may be considering therapy... this could come from feeling emotional, confused, anxious, low in mood or depressed or perhaps you feel no one understands or you simply feel you have lost your way in life...

The way you feel may be from life experiences or could be a result of deeper rooted problems such as issues with sexuality, abandonment, bereavement, relationships or conflict at work to name just a few....

I practice from comfortable rooms in a discreet location in Peterborough offering a safe and confidential place to talk, feel heard and understood...

The location is on Bus routes and easily accessible from all major roads leading into Peterborough and offers free parking.
