I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor and am registered (MBACP).
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I subscribe to their code of ethics, am fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS certificate.
My Professional training originated within the NHS where I attended the only institution in the UK training Counsellors within a primary care (GP Surgery) setting.
Prior to this I had graduated with BSc(Hons) in Social Science before progressing to qualify as a Solicitor. For nearly 20 years I worked both in the law and in commercial roles before coming full circle to focus upon a career in mental health.
This aspect of my career has seen me working in healthcare settings, organisational roles, some charity work and now, full time in private practice. I work both online and with clients face to face from my 2 consulting rooms in the South East of England. I believe that my life experience and varied career background allows me to bring a depth and breadth to the important work that I undertake with my clients.
Of course, what I say about me only takes us so far. Here are a couple of testimonials from clients I have worked with recently:
‘Colin is an awesome Counsellor. He is insightful, empathic and good humoured. Colin offered me insights in to my thought processes I’d never considered and gave me the skills to forge happier routes out of a dark space in my life. I cannot thank him enough…’ T, Sevenoaks ‘I wanted to thank you so much for helping to heal our relationship. It’s been one of the best things that has happened in our lives. Just wanted you to know what you do is such an amazing thing…’ Couple, Kent
