About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I'm Colin and I'm a father and grandfather. I have 17 years experience working with addictions, bereavement work and 10 years with families who have children with additional needs. I am very approachable and feel it is important to build trust in a counselling relationship before someone is able to share their deepest fears and concerns. I am a qualified Integrative Therapist which means I will use approaches that fit with the way clients wish to work. I also have a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and encourage clients to work on strategies between sessions, if appropriate. I have been a Mindfulness practitioner for many years and use Mindfulness-based approaches for depression and anxiety. As well as private practice I also work on a self-employed basis for NHS Counselling Services and see clients on a voluntary basis for a national bereavement support charity. I am an experienced trainer, qualified FE teacher and can offer training and group work.
I am able to see people face to face and adhere to Covid hygiene procedures. I have extensive experience in telephone and video counselling and offer a discount for clients who prefer these modalities.
