Bret Collins (UKCP registered, Relate trained)
I offer confidential counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples in Stirling. My approach is broadly integrative, and I try to tailor it to the needs of each client. There is a lot of information on my website, not just about me and the way I work, but also about the sort of problems that are brought to me and the range of resources available locally. I am registered with BUPA and other major health insurance companies.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been seeing clients since 2000 and have been UKCP registered since 2004.
I have a postgraduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and an Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Psychotherapy. I am a fully-qualified clinical supervisor and EMDR therapist, and have an additional training as a Relate counsellor for couple work.

Coming to counselling can be daunting, especially for the first time, and I do what I can to make things a bit easier. Most people start by having a preliminary chat on the phone or by e-mail, but you don't have to give much detail unless you want to. I see it as part of my job to answer questions and help you in your search for the right practitioner. If I don't have space or don't think I would be the right person to work with you, I will say so and suggest other names or ideas.
