Mates in Mind

Hi, I’m Pete.

Have you ever wondered why you get stuck in repetitive patterns of unhelpful behaviours?
Do you feel that you don’t have control over these patterns, and that they interfere with your quality of life?
Is having anxiety, feelings of depression or carrying around guilt and shame about things that happened to you in the past taking away from your happiness?

Is life feeling ‘too demanding’ or ‘too stressful’ for you? Do you find yourself not reaching for your goals and achieving your dreams?
Do you over think things and feel like your thoughts are on a continuous loop?

I can support you with finding and discovering meaning again, as well as being able to regulate your emotions so that you feel fulfilled and in charge of your life.

I hold professional membership with the National Counselling Society. I hold degrees, several diplomas and post graduate certificates in psychotherapeutic intervention models.

You can email me at, or give me a ring on 07544135770. I offer a short introductory meeting on Zoom, free of charge, to ascertain whether I am the right therapist for you. It is important for me that my clients have the openness to bring ‘all’ of them to therapy. I look forward journeying with you.
