Peter N Ralph, BSc (Honours) Psychology
Peter was a Merchant Navy Captain before coming ashore to start a Financial Planning Practice at the age of 32.
He soon began to pursue his interest in Psychology, concentrating on the Psychology of Parenting as well as Business Psychology, Interpersonal Relationships and Strategic Coaching, attending courses run by experts both from this country and in America.
In 1987 he employed his own Personal Development Coach and, with personal training, became a Coach in his own right a year or so later. He is able to give added benefit by integrating his Financial & Lifestyle Planning experience when coaching clients.
By the late 1990s Peter realised that coaching was one step up the ladder from counselling. He knew that there was a real need to help a significant number of people to overcome emotional and psychological problems before they could effectively benefit from the development and life skills coaching process.
Peter embarked on another journey of education and learning, becoming qualified and experienced in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Integrative Counselling and Psychology. He has a BSc (Honours) in Psychology, Certificates in Counselling and in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and teaches CBT and Counselling to trainee therapists at two Local Authority Adult Education Centre.
He is continuing his education programme, including a further Diploma in Coaching and is furthering his specialisation in anxiety disorders, particularly Social Anxiety Disorder.
Peter outlines his approach below:
I use a personalised eclectic approach that will help you to improve your life and your well-being.
No matter how good or how bad you feel about your life right now, I will empower you and work with you to make changes that will enhance your life and lead towards a feeling of self-fulfilment.
I can deal with Stress, Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Relationship issues etc; in fact anything that is holding you back from leading the life that you want to. This includes helping people to develop their full potential when they are at a cross road in life or just know that they could do better but need help or guidance to get there.
