About Me

Counselling Personalised to You

My name is Pete Tobias. I am a BACP-register counsellor based in London Bridge and Rickmansworth with the additional offering of online counselling sessions. To me, the joy of counselling is being witness to the resilience and strength of the human spirit and the capacity for growth and healing. I am frequently in awe of my clients’ ability to reclaim, and regain control over their lives after facing difficult and challenging experiences. It is a privilege to see the power of the therapeutic relationship at work, and I am often humbled by each and every person who is courageous enough to let me walk with them on this journey of healing.


If you are ready to undertake this journey, I am here to support you. I offer short -, and long-term counselling, and have worked with clients on issues ranging from anxiety and depression, to trauma, sexuality and identity issues, bereavement, and relationship troubles. You are not alone. Get in touch by filing out the online booking form for a free, no-obligation consultation.

My Story

It’s not uncommon for clients to imagine that counsellors have lived perfect lives

without struggle or pain. The truth is actually that counsellors and therapists

are often drawn to the profession because they have themselves experienced loss,

trauma or grief, and would like to support others who are facing similar

challenges. I too am human and have faced struggles and challenges that keep me

on the path of healing and transformation. It was out of my own experiences that

I discovered the gift of counselling. My passion to share this gift with others

is what drives me, and brought me to this profession.


I trained in Hypnotherapy in 2007. In 2014 I undertook counselling-specific training that

eventually culminated in a diploma in Integrative Counselling. I have worked in

both private practise and for a variety of organisations including Anxiety UK

and hospice organisations. My continued professional development have included

trauma-specific modalities such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and

Reprocessing) and IFS (Internal Family Systems). I am committed to continued

personal and professional development, and always practising in a

trauma-informed and non-biased way that creates a sense of safety for all my

clients. My approach is authentic, compassionate, and professional. I

understand the commitment that personal counselling calls for and consider the

therapeutic relationship to be incredibly valuable and a vital component to

change and growth.
