22+ Years Post-Registration Experience

Hi. I'm Colin Wilson. I'm an accredited and registered counsellor - I help individuals and couples with their mental wellbeing. I hold private sector experience as a counsellor. My interest involves relationship problems, and the specific challenges encountered by men.

What to Expect

A preliminary assessment session allows you to see if you are comfortable with me, share what worries you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and decide if therapy may benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an initial assessment appointment in Penzance or Truro.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on how your thoughts (cognitions) affect your emotions and actions. It recognises and addresses negative thoughts which maintain the problems you encounter. The aim of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to have healthier thoughts and feelings.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends cognitive behavioural therapy for bipolar disorder, depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and self harm.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what issue concerning your childhood or adulthood you discuss. An objective of counselling is to enable you to talk about a problem and discover a solution that is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Humanistic Therapy

Humanistic therapy focuses on valuing you. It considers you as a whole human being and prioritises your personal development. Humanistic therapy aims to help you recognise your freedom.
