Some Personal Information . . .
Hello, my name is Colin and I am Person- Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in Private Practice in East Kilbride (near Glasgow), and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (No. 378172),
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.
Prior to becoming a Counsellor, I spent a large part of my working life in industry, and also many years as a volunteer with The Samaritans Organisation in Glasgow.
Along with my professional counselling qualifications I believe that my years of life experience add great value to my Counselling Practice.
In addition to my years working in Private Practice I am also a School Counsellor at a large comprehensive in Ayrshire where I see the benefits that counselling can have for young people and am happy to take on clients aged 11 years and over.
Mental Health Awareness
In an effort to improve “Mental Health Awareness” within the wider community I now offer “Mental Health Awareness” sessions to local businesses, sports clubs, and community groups in East Kilbride and the wider Glasgow area.
During these sessions I inform groups and individuals about Mental Health and invite discussion about how to maintain positive Mental Health
