Colin Chapman: CC Therapy & Mindfulness - BA (Hons) MBACP
The Value of a Therapeutic Relationship
There may be occasions in our lives when we struggle to make sense of what is happening to us and the world we experience. Depression, anxieties, stress, loss of a loved one and traumatic moments are some of many unforeseen events, that can all change the way we see ourselves and the life we are living. I provide an opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences within a relationship that is free of the fears we may hold about disclosing to people we know. I offer a relationship of trust, honesty and openness that allows you to explore your story, thoughts, hopes and fears, in a safe, supportive, confidential place, free of external influences and judgement, providing an opportunity for personal insight and change.
I offer individual therapy to anyone that may be experiencing challenges in their life that may include depression, anxiety, abuse, loss, trauma, stress, anger, addictions, eating disorders and relationship difficulties.
As a fully insured and Registered Member of BACP (MBACP), CC Therapy and Mindfulness work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions 2018, providing an assurance for clients that the service they receive is bound by professional and ethical standards.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Mindfulness invites us to observe our internal and external worlds with inordinate care.
Mindfulness is a process that promotes an inherent tendency, in all of us, to become more aware of our present and on going experiences. Practicing mindfulness invites us to become more aware and understanding of our internal processes - thoughts, feelings and behaviors - that elicits an ever-deepening way of being, that opens up and welcomes possibilities that are as yet unknown.
I provide a safe, secure environment to explore your internal world, inviting you to become more aware and understanding of your own feelings and how they shape the perceptions of you and your experiences.
Complimentary 30 minute consultation, £40 per session thereafter.
