Hello! My name is Pete and I'm an Integrative Counsellor based in Scunthorpe. I have over 14 years experience working in NHS Mental Health Services, supporting people from all walks of life ranging from age 8 to 80.
I’m down to earth, approachable and trustworthy with a passion for helping people suffering with their mental health.
I am fully trained and ready to listen and support you. I will travel to you so you can about your feelings in a safe, confidential environment.
Sara is also an integrative counsellor , Sara has had previous experience working with drug and alcohol addictions. Sara likes to work with anxiety, depression, addictions, gender identity and sexuality.
Sara is also heavily involved with Sport and Talk, together we make a great team who compliment each other well.
Please get in touch with Sara for appointments either at the base or in the community.
Sara's email is and her mobile is 07852289103.
"Prevention is better than cure."
What can I help with?
I have experiences dealing with many aspects of mental health. Below are some examples areas I can help with. Due to current demand I have now a female counsellor working along side me . Sara Whitehouse has an interest working with addictions , and wants to engage females into sport. This is a positive to add balance and diversity to Prevention to Intervention.
There are so many gaps in the services presently there are people isolated in the community , in North Lincolnshire these are the people who we are hoping will reach out.
Please remember that I am not trained to help people who are in crisis - There are people who are specifically trained to deal with crisis including NHS Crisis Team, Police & CAMHS.
Low self esteem
1 to 1 Sport & Talk
In addition to private counselling sessions, I have availability to carry out talks and presentations in schools, work places and community groups.
How does it work?
After making initial contact, we will arrange a date for your session. I will travel to you in your chosen comfortable surroundings. I will do a graded exposure, so that you can feel at ease with me. I listen with empathy, putting myself in your shoes. Together we will develop strategies to help you gain perspective, deal with the negative feelings and overcome your current issues.
How much does it cost?
1 Hour | £25
It's so important that everyone can access support when they need it. By cutting out room costs, I am able to offer my sessions at £25 per hour.
From 19th August 2019 , myself and my colleague are moving into Voluntary Action North Lincolnshire (VANL) (based at 4-6 Robert Street ,Scunthorpe, DN15 6NG.) This is an alternative if clients would like to be seen outside their home environment. With an office comes extra costs and sessions held at our base will be £25. We are excited about this and will look at a Men's Group.

Sport & Talk
Sport & Talk promotes positive mental health through a united love for football. Come along for a social kick about, I will always be available for a chat after too. I’m hoping Sport & Talk can reduce the stigma and open up new opportunities for communication. We have a diverse group of people going to sessions, we have now reduced the age to 12 and upwards.
I have seen a group of people become a team, with smiles on their faces. People feeling a part of something, I have seen such positivity.
We now have our first tournament Sunday 25th August at Doncaster Keepmoat stadium. There are 62 teams involved from different parts of the country.
Every Wednesday 8pm-9pm @ The Pods, Scunthorpe.
£3.50 a session.
