About Peter Batten

Ah, a describe yourself box. I have many "labels", a therapist, an educator, a husband, a father, a business person... but I don't believe in defining people by labels, let alone myself! How’s this... I’ve always been intrigued by the role key people play in the course of our life, especially the way they shape our beliefs and values. Significant relationships change you and change the way you relate to others. Well they have me. A few significant relationships in my life have encouraged me to believe, that despite my flaws, I’m at my best, when I encourage others to be the best they can be, to learn from their setbacks and to seize their opportunities. Having a positive impact on the lives of others, that to me is a legacy worth striving for, and after all, it’s my legacy that will define me.
