Meet Pete…

 Hi, I’m Pete!  I am really excited by the opportunity to provide quality counselling to the people in our local area.  I look forward to meeting you – please feel free to get in touch via text or email anytime, and we can chat about how I might be able to help you.

I grew up in Sydney and moved to Forster (what a beautiful part of the world!) at the beginning of 2001.  One of my greatest joys is hanging out with my family and friends, closely followed by good coffee.  I love watching soccer (especially when it involves my kids).  When time permits, I enjoy a spot of fishing, and I’m hoping to get back into woodworking in the very near future.
