Colin Cramphorn PGDip, Registered MBACP
32 George Street
Hello, thank you for taking time out to view my profile.
I am a fully qualified, registered counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
Right now you might be feeling more anxious and upset than normal, affecting how you feel about yourself, causing difficulties with current relationships at home or at work.
It might be helpful to discuss your problems and concerns with somebody outside of your normal surroundings.
Making the decision to contact and then see a counsellor can be a huge step; it may feel daunting or uncomfortable-I will do my best to help alleviate any such worries or concerns that you may have.
My approach to counselling is flexible, sensitive, respectful, and adapted to your personal needs.
My practice is underpinned by my psychodynamic training, which centres on looking at your past, but links it to the present. We will explore how your experiences, (which may have led to patterns of often unconsciously, repeated behaviour), have shaped how you relate to yourself and others and the world you live in. This can often facilitate an opportunity for new understanding and insight, empowering you to make changes to your life that lead to a healthier, more fulfilling existence.
I will offer you a safe, secure and confidential space, in a non-judgemental environment, where you will be listened to, not told what to do.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am qualified counsellor with a BACP accredited, Certificate of Higher Education in Counselling and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling, from the University of Hertfordshire.
I currently work in private practice and for the Counselling team at the Letchworth Centre for Healthy Living. I have previously worked in the voluntary sector for Her Majesty’s Prison Service. I also have experience of mentoring young people in care.
I have particular experience and interest in working with issues around anxiety and depression, stress, self-esteem, relationships, bereavement and loss, and identity.
I work with adults and adolescents (male and female), on an individual basis.
Dependant on the nature of your current problem, we can agree to work on a short or longer term basis, or alternatively, we can adjust to your needs as we progress; there is no limit to the number of sessions a client can receive, therapy is allowed to come to a natural end to meet the needs of each individual client.
I’m a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists: www.bacp.co.uk) and adhere to the BACP ethical framework - this can be viewed by clicking this link (and includes detail on principles around confidentiality): http://www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/
I’m committed to continuing my professional development and as such I regularly attend training events and workshops.
I hold an enhanced DBS check as well as private indemnity insurance
