Psychotherapist and Trauma Counsellor

Peter Ciceri is a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Psychotherapist with a focus on First Responders, including  Police, Veterans and Fire Fighters. In his private practice Peter works with clients experiencing, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, pain management, substance misuse and trauma. Peter uses different modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Gestalt, Mindfulness, Positive Psychology and in particular Peter is a certified EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) practitioner working with those suffering from trauma and PTSD.

“My legal practice is representation of injured workers.  I continuously refer first responders to Peter for treatment of their PTSD, which is generally prolonged, recalcitrant, and accompanied by MDD, AD, SUD.   Report from clients and objective psychometric testing confirms that outcomes with Peter are vastly superior. Peter’s professionalism, communication, compassion, and engagement have provided them more gain in one or two sessions than they have achieved over tens of treatment sessions with other professionals.”

“In my therapy sessions with Peter, I saw him as gentle, and approachable which helped me open up.  He used EMDR with me and I unloaded more than one weight I had been carrying.  I will always be grateful to Peter.  I would, and do recommend Peter wholeheartedly.”

“It is rare to meet such a smart, compassionate person who can draw on such wide life experience. Even more rare is a therapist who will co-create meaningful therapeutic results without requiring endless sessions. Peter’s ability to utilize EMDR allows clients to understand their trauma and to re-examine long-held beliefs and live free from their negative impacts.”

“I can never thank you enough for your profound generosity.  Your time and energy has been life changing for me.  Thank you for guiding me through one of the most challenging times in my life.  I will never forget how you guided and encouraged me on my journey.  With endless gratitude.”
