My name is Peter Burgoyne. My practice is named ‘Better Talk’ and is located in the Wollongong suburb of Unanderra.
I am a qualified counsellor with 17 years post-grad experience. Have worked in a large social welfare agency from graduation to 2018 and am now in private practice. I specialise in Narrative approaches to therapy and have a background in trauma informed practice. My relevant experience is in individual and couple therapy, and I have a particular interest in working with men.
I am a former soldier, and have an excellent understanding of the experiences and contemporary support needs of service personnel. Service families are significantly over-represented in the relationship breakdown statistics in Australia, and this problem has only become worse over the last 20 years or so since Australia ramped up its operational commitments.
I hold a Master of Counselling and a Graduate Diploma of Counselling. Of course, I can supply documentary evidence at request. For further information, please contact me at the above email address or on 02 9159 6176.
The office is located 100 from the nearest train station.
