Brad Peters, Psychologist

Registered Halifax Psychologist

I am a Halifax Psychologist providing therapy services for children (10+), teens, adults, couples, and families. I aim to understand the whole person and use a therapeutic approach tailored to the specific needs of individual clients. My goal is to provide people with experiences that address underlying issues while promoting real and lasting change.

I offer therapy and counselling at Cornerstone Psychological Services in Halifax. In addition to providing information about my psychology practice, this website offers free resources for anyone interested in mental health. Be sure to check out the FAQ section for answers to common questions and follow the links in the ‘psychological services’ side-bar to videos and articles ranging from depression and anxiety to existential issues.

Brad briefly describes his thoughts on the process of therapy and counselling.

Finding a psychologist: If you are looking for a clinical therapist, you will note that there are plenty of Halifax Psychologists to choose from. It is therefore reasonable for potential therapy clients to do a bit of research to ensure that they find a clinician who will be a good match for them. Potential clients are more than welcome to contact me to briefly discuss their situation prior to committing to making a therapy appointment.

2016: News and Updates

My Halifax psychology practice has been busy, and we’ve enjoyed some exciting new changes, including the addition of another full-time psychologist to our team of therapists. Our social media presence is also continuing to grow as we increase our efforts to inform our potential clients about the work that we do. My philosophy goes like this: ‘if you sincerely believe you are good at what you do, don’t be ashamed to talk about it, write about it, and put yourself out there.’ Our Cornerstone Facebook Page has been busy posting links to interesting essays, videos, quotes, and more. We’ve also been committed to posting original essays on our mental health blog; in case you’ve missed it, here are some recent articles I’ve written:

Tips for Clients in Therapy
Psychotherapy is like Physiotherapy
How to Understand and Talk about Suicide

Our YouTube channel is also worth checking out. While I don’t necessarily like watching myself on video (we’re all a little self-critical aren’t we?), it is a great format to get a sense of how a psychologist works by seeing hearing them talk. So far, the videos have gotten amazing feedback, and my video on Attachment Theory and Emotion Regulation has 2500+ views! Be sure to check out those other videos on Defining Psychotherapy, Psychological Roadblocks in Therapy, and Defense Mechanisms in Therapy.

All the best,
