About Peter Batten

Ah, a describe yourself box. I have many labels, a therapist, an educator, I run a business, but I don't believe in defining people by labels. I also don’t like three-word slogans, but if I did, live life fully, love generously, and leave a legacy in the form of the lives we touch, resonates. If I was reduced to two words I’d choose, adaptable and expansive. But who wants to be limited to three-word slogans or defined by two words or a label? 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.
