Hello, my name is Colin.
I am a Person- Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist who is registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (Reg. Number 378172), based in East Kilbride (South Lanarkshire).
On my path to becoming a Counsellor I have gained the COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills and also the Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Along with my professional counselling qualifications I also bring many years of life experience to my practice which I believe add to my position as a Counsellor.
Before becoming a Counsellor, I spent a large part of my working life in industry and also spent many years as a volunteer with The Samaritans Organisation in Glasgow, which gave me some of the most rewarding times of my life.
In addition to my counselling private practice I am also a school counsellor at one of the largest comprehensive schools in Scotland, where I support pupils aged between 11 – 17.
From July 2022 I have also began to offer “Mental Health Awareness” Sessions to local business in East Kilbride, and also the wider Glasgow area.
During these sessions I inform groups and individuals about Mental Health and also invite discussion about how to maintain positive Mental Health, and also how recongise signs of anxiety, low self-esteem and depression.
