Peter Charleston

At age 15 during a compulsory visit to his school careers counsellor Peter was told his personality was suited to being a Psychologist.

“She said I had compassion for others, by way I took care of the weaker kids in the classroom and on the playground. At the time I laughed and dismissed the advice, yet it planted a seed that has been growing ever since.”

Peter has now been a counselling and coaching psychologist and business coach for over twenty years. His integrated approach covers a wide range of presenting issues, including: anxiety and depression, Relationships, addictions, family issues, work and money stress, and work-life balance.

“I do what I do to make a positive difference to people’s lives. I have created a theory of emotional needs that helps people heal and connect, and have developed a map of human psychology that I use to help people improve their awareness of themselves.”

Peter’s qualifications include a Bachelor of Arts, University of Melbourne, a Graduate Diploma of Counselling Psychology (RMIT); a Graduate Diploma of Business Administration (Swinburne University); a Graduate Diploma in Trauma Counselling and Psychotherapy (Cairnmillar Institute) and a Diploma in Couple and Relationship Psychotherapy (Cairnmillar Institute).

Psychology is Peter’s passion. “I am fascinated by the mind, human behaviour, how we gain mastery and expertise, how we make decisions, and how we create our lifestyles.”

In Peter’s work he endeavours to display integrity, compassion, professionalism, and acceptance of differences, whilst striving to
achieve practical results. “In this complex field there is always more to learn and put into practice in helping others, and the journey is a very rewarding one.”
