Colin supports people who are experiencing grief and loss, depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, and self-esteem issues. He can help you navigate grief from all kinds of losses – losing a loved one, ending relationships, or any major life change. Together you will work to accept and process difficult emotions, and learn skills to deal with challenging situations. Colin is great at helping you explore your values, strengths, and life experiences to help you heal and grow.
Colin offers a safe space where you can share your experiences and begin to see the world from a new perspective. Colin believes that you have a unique journey with its own challenges and rewards. He understands that therapy works best when it engages your whole being, not just the concerns that bring you here. By working with Colin, you’ll get to know yourself as a person, decide how to work through challenges, and achieve your goals.
Colin takes a client-centred approach. He uses techniques from narrative therapy, emotionally-focused therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, existential therapy, and mindfulness (he has his own mindfulness practice). He believes that a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship is the most important factor in creating positive change.
Colin enjoys staying active, getting outdoors, baking bread, and is eager to hear about the activities that bring you joy and connection. He believes that therapy can be helpful to all of us at different stages in our lives. He’s happy to explore all the different parts of your life – personal, social, cultural, and spiritual.
