Peter Lindsay




Tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a proud husband and father of two beautiful adult daughters; about to become a grandfather for the first time.

I'm a Clinical Psychologist with a strong interest in trauma, and in particular post-traumatic stress disorder.  I'm in private practice with my beautiful wife, Kath, who is also a Clinical Psychologist.

I have had several different careers, and believe these and life experience has set me up well as a psychologist

Why did you join Rotary?

Because I was invited

Because it was a way of giving back to the community

And as a way of meeting others outside my normal professional network.

What in your life do you feel most proud of?

My family

The two houses I have built (hands on)

My work

If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be?

I don’t regard them as possessions, but I would have to say my family.

How do you spend your free time?

I love walking with Kath, paddling our kayaks, and working around the house.

What are your top three favourite books or movies and why?

I enjoy survival stories, because they give me an insight into the human mind.

Books: Papillon (Henri Charrier), Long walk To Freedom (Nelson Mandela), anything to do with survival/real life adventure e.g., Mountain climbing

What is a skill you'd like to learn and why?

Playing a musical instrument. I initially thought guitar (I failed), then piano (I failed again). I would settle for a didgeridoo.

 I admire those who can express themselves musically.
