I have only had two sessions with Peter so far but it has been worth every penny and minute. I was very sceptical about therapy and talking due to my pessimistic nature and low self esteem, confidence and anxiety but Peter is very easy to talk and open up to. I've taken all advice on board so far and am starting to put into practice what I have learnt and I'm definitely on the up and in a much better place.
It's good to talk 😊

Since meeting Peter my life has changed dramatically for the better. I spoke to a few people in what felt like an emergency cry for help and the moment I made contact with Peter despite the anti social hour I just knew I was going to be able to work with him. He has helped me look at how I view things and work specifically with grief and anger related to childhood trauma. My anger has lessoned dramatically since our sessions and I am more in control of my life. I have now moved on to couples therapy with Peter and my partner and I both have a good relationship with him. I cannot recommend Peter and Better Lives more. He really does make your life better. Thank you! More...

I reached out to Peter when I was at an all time low with anxiety and anger out of control. Despite the anti social hour he was one of a few who responded kindly and really showed an understanding of what I was going through despite never having spoken to me. Since then my life has only improved. Meeting Peter has not only helped me but also my family as once I had managed to unravel my anger and anxiety problems I was then able to involve my partner and work at rebuilding some of the issues in our relationship. We both have a really good relationship with Peter and find his style of counselling really helpful. He helps you to break down the thought process of why you are behaving in a certain way and gives you alternative methods to try and fix negative behavioural patterns. We still have a way to go with our relationship but the improvement from our sessions has already made a huge impact to our daily lives. With regard to my initial emergency call out. I cannot thank you enough Peter. I have laid some demons I have been fighting with for a long time to rest and I cannot thank you enough for this! More...

I first spoke to Peter on the phone as I was reaching out for help with depression and he has been recommended via Bark. He listened to me for about an hour. He was patient, kind, gentle, intelligent, empathetic, compassionate and genuinely seemed to care and to want to help. And he still is and does. Peter has been my 'life coach' for several months now. I call him that because not only does he listen, but he truly engages and offers insights, suggestions, follow up and advice. We talk online as he lives a distance from me, which means we can 'meet' when it suits me, but still maintain privacy. I am beginning to make progress and have noticed a shift in my thinking and thought patterns. Peter has definitely been worth the time and investment. More...

Meeting Peter really helped me to get perspective in my life. He is brilliant at reading between the lines of emotional state and unlocking the true meanings and evidence behind our feelings and how they impact and consume us on a day to day basis. Ongoing sessions are helping me come out of an anxiety and depression state, and are starting to help me live the life I want, on my terms. This is creating huge benefits for my work and family life. Highly recommend reaching out to him! More...

Services

Helping clients setting realistic and achievable goals and creating a route map of getting there. By using Thought Field Therapy I can resolve emotional blockages that get in the way of achieving the desired outcomes

I specialise in anxiety based issues and use a combination of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and TFT (thought field therapy). CBT is effective in reality checking negative thoughts and changing behaviour to a more positive approach to life. TFT is a gentle and quick way of reducing or curing fears, phobias, PTSD and other anxiety related issues.
