is to help clients to understand themselves more, without getting in the way.
Peter has had considerable experience in supporting families through separation and divorce, anxiety and stress,
bullying, relationship difficulties, grief, anger management, general school issues, developing resilience, coping with
life changes and goal setting. Peter also conducts cognitive functioning and achievement assessments for children

rapport is established quickly, meaningful engagement is maintained and that the child has fun as part of their therapy.
