Dr Peter Finlay Psychodynamic psychotherapist , CM6
Previously, an NHS Honorary Therapist, I have been in private practice since 2006. My consulting room in Stebbing is in a quiet and discreet setting and I offer a calm and empathetic approach while we work through whatever is troubling you..
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist my career was in computer forensic analysis and data recovery. While it may seem that these are rather diverse paths to pursue, they are in fact strangely related:
Forensic investigation and recovery requires a diligent concentration on recognising clues in order to understand the difference between what is presented and what is actually the truth; as well as following threads to reveal the real story below the surface. This could be a model description of the process behind Psychodynamic Psychotherapy which I studied under Dr. Diane LeFevre.
The post-graduate course that she supervised included a great deal of clinical practice after which I continued as an Honorary Therapist at Basildon Mental Health Hospital until I established my own private practice in 2006. I now practice from my home in Stebbing and also at The Harley Consultancy in Harley Street, London.
I have particular experience in Adoption Issues, Anxiety, Bereavement, General counselling, Identity problems, Obsessional behaviour, Personal Development, Phobias, Self Esteem and Self-worth, Sex related issues, Sexual identity and Issues with fluidity.
Although my primary approach is Psychodynamic, I also call upon a variety of other theoretical ‘models’ including Analytic Therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural), Person Centred and Mindfulness as appropriate.
I work with Adults and Young People (16+) one to one either long-term work or time-limited as well as online counselling using Skype, Facetime, RingMD and Sylo.
I am a registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and fully insured by Towergate. I am bound and adhere to the BACP and ICO codes of ethics and am registered with BUPA, AXA-PPP and others as a provider.
