My name is Peter Mickelborough. I
completed my Advanced Diploma in Counselling as a person-centred
counsellor in 1990 and was registered with the British Association for
Counselling and Psychotherapy from then until I came to France in 2003. I
gained Senior Registered Practitioner status with the BACP in 1996. I have
an MSc in Counselling Psychology from Manchester Metropolitan University
and I have also taken training in various specialities including couple
counselling, stress management, and working with survivors of abuse.
From 1993 I was a lecturer in counselling at the University of Salford,
working there part-time in order to carry on my professional practice. I
have worked extensively in the NHS, in various companies, and in private
I work with both individuals and couples. I find that people have problems
for many reasons. Sometimes these reasons are to do with their present
lives. Sometimes they are linked to events in the past.
Counselling is not an easy process but it does offer a way forward with
problems that at times may seem insuperable. It helps people look at what
their problems are really about and tries to help them find solutions and
a way forward.
I work in sessions that last one hour, and I usually see clients each
week. I do not contract for a particular number of sessions with clients
but make appointments week by week as we go along. Clients may come to me
for a few weeks, or their difficulties may take much longer to resolve.
This process is always in the hands of my clients.
I am happy to see clients for a short meeting before any arrangement for
counselling is made. This will, I hope, help you decide whether
counselling is for you. There is no charge for this. I charge 30 euros per
session of counselling whether I am working with an individual or a
I work from home about 10 minutes
north of Rostrenen, in the very centre of Brittany.
