To support National Psychotherapy Day our Clinical Director, Peter Palumbo, shares his heartwarming journey to becoming a counsellor, Samaritan and UKCP registered gestalt psychotherapist.

Peter shares how he attended a beginners counselling course initially to support a friend who didn’t want to go alone. The experience proved life-changing for Peter and the journey of self-discovery and learning is something he continues to pursue with great passion today.

You can watch Peter’s short film on our YouTube channel here!

If you are interested in beginning the journey to becoming a counsellor or psychotherapist, Focus offers counselling courses from beginner to intermediate level. We are in the process of designing online courses to introduce aspiring therapists to the ‘new world’ of online and telephone working that has been so essential during the coronavirus pandemic.
