I’m an experienced person-centred counsellor, trained at Masters level, who has worked successfully with a variety of people of different backgrounds and ages, and with a wide range of issues and concerns. Some of the issues I’ve worked with include: anxiety, depression, relationship issues, bipolar disorder, generalised anxiety disorder and bereavement. I also work with children and young people, giving them a safe and confidential space to explore their concerns.
Hopefully, through looking through my website you’ll get a feel for how I work, and what I’m like as a person. Choosing a counsellor is a very personal thing, and it’s important to get the right fit; you need to feel comfortable and safe in order to open up about things that are troubling you. If you’re a bit uncertain about whether I’m the right person for you, then it may be an idea to book an Introductory Session with me – this can be a one-off, there is no obligation for you to continue, but it does have the advantage of giving you a real idea about what counselling with me would be like. I offer this session at a reduced fee.
I hope you find all the information you need to decide if counselling is for you, and whether I might be the right counsellor for you, by clicking on the menu above. If you don’t, and you have further questions, please get in touch, either by phone or by email, and I’ll try to answer any queries you have.
'Colleen has helped me to come to terms with my confusion over grieving – in a professional, calm and effective manner she has changed my concept of the grieving process. With her help I am now able to accept my own way of grieving and move forward in my life.
