Hi, I'm Peter, an experienced counsellor with a graduate Diploma in Relationship Counselling validated by Napier University and significant post-qualification training.  This qualifies me to work with individuals and couples on a range of issues. 

 

I work in private practice on a range of issues, and as a relationship counsellor with  Counselling Highland  (what many people would think of as ‘Relate’).  I use their offices in View Place Inverness as a central location for my private work. Normally I only work face-to-face, not online.

 

Most counsellors, usually as a requirement of their training, have had counselling themselves and I’m no exception. Thus I have a deep understanding of how we go through adjusting to major changes and what it’s like to be a client.  It’s helped me get through the school of life and reach a grounded place that counsellors need to keep their own stuff out of the counselling room and focus on you. 

In a previous life I worked to develop individuals and organisations through coaching and facilitation, gaining an MSc along the way  and becoming a qualified NLP Practitioner. ( Neuro-linguistic Programming is a toolkit for thinking and communicating.)   

​​

I'm registered with the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) which is the UK's main body regulating the quality of these services and with COSCA, the equivalent for Scotland. I uphold their codes of ethics.   I am  also a counselling supervisor (mentor) and I'm a member of the British EFT (Emotionally Focussed Therapy) community.
