Hello, my name is Colin.
I am a fully-qualified Person- Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist who is registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (Reg. Number 378172).
On my path to becoming a Counsellor I have gained the COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills and 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.
When I attended counselling for the first time just a few years ago I will never forget how I was supported by a kind and caring counsellor who helped give me strength, confidence and made me feel important.
In addition to my counselling private practice I am also a school counsellor at one of the largest comprehensive schools in Ayrshire.
In my role as school counsellor I support pupils aged between 11 – 17 who attend counselling with wide-range of mental health issues.
