Dr Peter L Nelson, PhD (click for CV) is a psychologist and social scientist who has 50+ years experience in personal and business coaching, transpersonal counseling, psychological assessment and research into behavior and consciousness.
His coaching and counseling focuses on making clients aware of how they perceive the world by guiding them to become more skillful and fluid in their use of attention. This process leads to an enhanced capacity for problem solving, goal setting and performance.

His on-going research continues his earlier explorations of how people experience and understand reality—whether seen through the visions of mystics or the daily perceptions of ordinary people.

In Australia he practices as a consultant psychologist and life coach.
