My name is Pieter Vroom and I am married with two children.
Before qualifying as a counsellor and psychotherapist I worked as a teacher for many years.
I have worked as a counsellor in two GP practices, with a wide variety of people and issues, as well as for a university offering mental health support to students. I now work in private practice, and provide supervision for a national charity. I am also contracted to provide counselling and psychotherapy for employees of a County Council.
My approach is integrative, which means I use different methods according to the client's needs. The main approaches I use are person centred approach, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and attachment theory.
