A bit about me

Peter is committed to providing collaborative psychotherapy based on warmth, compassion and respect. He enjoys working with adolescents and adults, using evidence-based treatments for difficulties relating to anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, self-esteem, life transitions, and relationships. Peter believes in the value of adopting strategies to help clients with their present-day difficulties, while also exploring previous circumstances that may have led people to have these experiences. The aim of this approach is to provide shorter term support, while helping clients to better understand themselves, identify meaningful goals and tangible strategies, and make lasting changes to improve overall wellbeing.

Peter has worked in private practice, public hospitals, and community mental health, treating a wide range of psychological difficulties across the lifespan, including experience working with inpatients in acute mental health services. He also has experience in corporate and consulting settings, has been married for over 30 years, and has three adult children. Peter holds general registration with the AHPRA Psychology Board of Australia.

Peter uses various therapeutic approaches to inform treatment based on evidence, including Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Mindfulness, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).
