Hi my name is Peter Smith I specialise in treating and coaching people how to live well with mental health problems, digestive health problems/IBS, sleep problems and type II diabetes using natural therapies.
I used these techniques to overcome and live well with my own bipolar disorder, IBS, I also briefly had and reversed type II diabetes. You can read about my mental health recovery story  here.

I have practised nutritional and naturopathic medicine for almost 20 years, today I use diet, amino acids, supplements and natural remedies to balance brain chemistry for mental health problems and to assist drug addiction recovery when combined with appropriate drug counselling.
We now know that the brain is plastic and highly repairable and in my practice I focus a lot on improving the fundamental health or neuroplasticity of the brain, this has been shown to play a major role in mental health problems. A new theory in psychiatric medicine is that low-grade inflammation in the brain plays a fundamental role in mental health problems; identifying and eliminating the source of information is important as is applying an anti-inflammatory diet and supplement protocol.
Another new understanding is that excessive stress responses and cortisol damage the functioning of key structures in the brain that control mood and mental health and that this phenomenon can be unwound with meditation and relaxation brain training.
A course of intensive meditative brain-training can stimulate a rewiring effect in the brain that can be helpful for mental health problems, I teach meditation and relaxation brain-training individually and in small groups. This may also be helpful for people with adrenal fatigue.
For anxiety and OCD I use a new approach of combining gradual exposure-therapy with natural antianxiety remedies to assist the process.
I trained in cognitive hypnotherapy and NLP and offer these therapies for people that want to ‘remodel’ unhelpful/unwanted psychological states.
I published my first book (Sleep Better with Natural Therapies) in 2013 and write on using natural therapies for mental health problems.
Since using natural therapies to overcome my own irritable bowel syndrome I continued to work and training this area including the new understanding of the role of SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) and parasites on IBS. (Testing for SIBO requires external laboratory analysis).
I started detoxifying Mercury from amalgam fillings in the late 80s and by the late 90s developed a two-step detoxification protocol for heavy metals. (Testing requires external laboratory analysis).
I trained in a wide range of natural medicines.
Qualifications: Dip. nutritional medicine, Dip. cognitive hypnotherapy, Cert. NLP practitioner, Dip. Chinese herbal medicine, Lic. acupuncture, Dip. Bicom resonance therapy.
(please note I no longer take appointments for Bicom therapy, Chinese herbal medicine or acupuncture).
