About Peter
Peter trained as a clinical psychologist in Sydney and worked for the NSW Health Department in Child and Family Mental Health for 25 years. He qualified as a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist in 1983 at the Tavistock Clinic in London.  Upon returning to Sydney, he established the Institute of Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (ICAPP.) in 1994 and is currently the Director. ICAPP offers online training in child and adolescent psychotherapy.
Peter has worked in private practice in Sydney for the last 25 years. His clinical practice involves seeing children, adolescents and adults and he lectures to students in Universities and Psychotherapy organisations. He provides supervision and training to individual practitioners and organisations such as STARTTS (NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors) and organisations in China.
Peter trained in a Kleinian approach and now works in a way that integrates this approach with more recent psychodynamic developments such as the Relational model and post-Bion ways of thinking. His work incorporates many of Winnicott’s thoughts about the importance of play. Peter supervises in a playful and open way.

Peter is the author of ‘Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy’, now in its third edition (Routledge, 2021) and is a required text for those training in child psychotherapy in many countries. His book is translated into Georgian and has just been released with a translation into Mandarin, selling 1500 copies in the first hour of release. He has published articles in the Child Psychoanalytic Gazette, the Australian Journal of Psychotherapy and the Journal of Child Psychotherapy (UK). He has contributed chapters to ‘Being Alive’ edited by Judith Edwards (Brunner-Routledge, 2001) and “The Importance of Play in Early Childhood Education” by Charles and Bellinson (Routledge, 2019).
