I am often asked What is Counselling ? What is Psychotherapy ?

Generally speaking, Counselling and Psychotherapy are the same thing, a professional therapist helping an individual, couple, child, family or group to solve their problems and plan for the future.

There are times in our lives when we all need a good listening to!

For all of us, there are times in our lives when we experience distressing events and emotions which seem to have no end or solution in sight. Sometimes we know that our feelings are due to circumstances such as:


If our anxiety or distress becomes too great we can be prompted into making hasty decisions, often to be regretted.
  1. Stress in relationships at work.
  2. Breakdown of relationships and divorce.
  3. Redundancy or retirement.
  4. Eating disorders, body image, drug talking or drinking too much.
  5. Housing, education, employment or financial worries.
  6. Bereavement, separation and loss.
  7. Abuse, abandonment and insecure attachments.
  8. Poor self-esteem, self-valuing and self-worth.
  9. Panic attacks, phobias, depression, anger, anxiety and fear.
  10. Acute Feelings of shame, embarrassment and guilt.
  11. Psychological and emotional trauma.
  12. PTSD, dissociative and personality disorder.
  13. Mental health issues and suicidal thoughts.
  14. Marital, family and child attachment issues.

At other times, we may not actually know what is making us feel the way we do, all we know is that our lives have become uncomfortable, difficult or unbearable. If our anxiety or distress becomes too great we can be prompted into making hasty decisions, often to be regretted.

You Are Not Alone...

Thousands of people in Britain seek help from a counsellor or psychotherapist at some time in their lives.

Some people refer themselves for help while others come to counselling having been referred by their manager, minister, doctor, social worker or mental health specialist. Whoever you are, whatever your problem, whenever you are worried, depressed, confused, feeling bad about yourself, coping with unexpected change or crisis, or just wanting to make some changes in your life, it can be helpful to talk things over without judgement.

Where Do I Go From Here?

A first meeting with a counsellor is an opportunity to discuss whether counselling would be appropriate to your needs, and it is without obligation on either side.

You may just want to talk, but at some stage you will need to know about practical considerations such as confidentiality, time, place, cost and duration of meetings. The number of meetings, called sessions, will vary according to individual need and circumstances, but they are usually once weekly and last about an hour for
individuals, longer for couples, supervisees, and therapy groups. For fees, it's normal to charge £45 for individuals and supervisees, £50 for couples and families, and £60 for group work or therapy.

Feel free to ask any questions you wish, as you will need to know where you stand and to satisfy yourself that The therapist is a person with whom you can place your trust. Click here to contact me.

About Aegis - Peter Stell

The NHS prescribes a form of therapy called CBT, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, this is often seen by Mental Health professionals as a 'one size fits all' form of brief, solution focused therapy. I do not agree. I see clients as unique individuals and believe that therapy must be 'made to measure' so as to meet, and respond to individual need. I have been a therapist for almost 25 years and I see clients as people with their unique personalities, histories and concerns, and I treat them all in the way that I would like to be treated, that is, with empathy, unconditional positive regard, honestly, openness, dignity, and with the utmost respect. In essence, therapy is about helping people discover who they really are and helping them meet their full potential.

Therapy is not just about a problem to be solved, it's about a journey. Therapy is not just about change management, it's about gaining the sort of self-awareness and self-understanding that enables a person to find unconditional self-acceptance, health, healing and wholeness in themselves, in their relationships, and in their world.

What sort of therapist can help a person heal their wounds and come to know themselves? Well, first off, I am an Integrative Psychotherapist, which means that I have studied and integrated a number of theories and am proficient in the practice of them, whether I am working with individuals, couples, children, families, supervisees or groups.

sexual abuse and addictions; bereavement, loss and depression; anxiety, fear and phobias; anger and relationship problems; stress in the workplace and critical incident trauma to psychiatric disorders.

My qualifications are at degree and higher diploma levels and I have a Ph.D. in Psychotherapy. My experience is in Private Practice, but over the years I have provided a range of counselling services in Industry and Commerce, in the Prison Service and the Probation Service, in Colleges and Universities, in the NHS and Social Services, in Children Homes and Faith Groups. To add to this, I am a Senior BACP Accredited and Nationally Registered Psychotherapist, a Member of BPS and my group work is endorsed by the GASI. My work as a trainer in counselling, psychotherapy and supervision, is also supported by the BACP Association for University and College Counselling and Spirituality Association.

Clients who come for counselling bring with them a variety of problems that cause distress. My training, and depth of life-experience, bring richness to the therapeutic relationship that enables clients to explore their narrative and come to a new and better understanding of who they are and what they bring to counselling. From this they come to identify manageable objectives, and clients achieve their goals through the therapeutic process, given credence to the idea that I treat people and their problems with the utmost respect.

The issues that clients present include sexual abuse and addictions; attachments; bereavement, loss and depression; anxiety, depression, fear and phobias; anger and relationship problems; stress in the workplace and from critical incident trauma to psychiatric disorders.
