About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Colin and I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist (Reg. Number 378172).
As your counsellor I believe that you are the expert of your own life and I will do my best to support you with warmth, kindness and empathy.
Your mental health and well-being can be impacted by many things that can make you feel worthless and although it might feel like it at times, you are not alone.
Together we can explore your feelings in a safe and confidential space, where I will sit alongside you and help you gain a better understanding your concerns and move towards positive change in your life.
Change can begin to occur when you start to believe you are worth caring for and I will support and work with you to enable change in your life; to help you see how important you truly are and there can be light at the end of a dark tunnel.
Taking that first step to begin counselling takes courage and our relationship will be based on confidentiality, trust and honesty which are some of the foundations of Person-Centred Counselling.
Not that long ago I completed five years as a volunteer with The Samaritans and being there helped give me an insight into some of the challenges that came make life so difficult, but also showed me that being there to support a person in need can be the start of positive change.
As well as well as working in private practice I also work in education as a school counsellor supporting pupils between the ages of 11 – 17 at one of Scotland’s largest comprehensive schools.
