Dr. Peter Meades

High quality Counselling and Psychotherapy

Sometimes we need help to face certain problems, challenges or difficulties in life.


Peter Meades

Doctor of Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a talking therapy that uses the therapeutic relationship to explore, support, challenge, and increase awareness of what’s going on for us, and our relationships with others; ultimately to live more satisfying lives, more fully in the present.

I‘m an experienced integrative, dialogical therapist with a doctorate in psychotherapy. I have a broad range of experience mostly in the NHS and private practice but also in the third sector. I am UKCP registered and IPTUK accredited.

I work full-time in the NHS during weekdays so my private client slots are in the evenings, Monday to Friday.

I work with adults 18+, individually, and either digitally (video) or face-to-face.


As an integrative psychotherapist and pluralist, I take the view that different counselling and psychotherapy approaches all have something valuable to offer, and I draw on various theoretical and technical ideas depending on what’s needed, being flexible in the dialogical context. This means the therapy varies depending on the particular needs of each person.

I have a post-qualification training and accreditation in Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), an evidence-based approach that’s particularly helpful for depression.

I take an inclusive, non-pathologising view of gender and sexuality and recognise the broad range of gender, sexual, and relationship diversities (GSRD).
