Colin Ogdon Registered MBACP, Manchester, Transactional Analysis
I am a naturally warm caring person with a very broad life experience. I currently have a Masters level qualification (4 years) in Psychotherapy and work out of two different practices across Manchester.
My approach to therapy is to put the individual first, to take care and make effort to truly understand where you're coming from so that together we can help resolve your pain. I work with a broad range of people and do not judge - no matter the nature of your struggle. My goal as a therapist is to bring care, understanding and resolution to as many people as I can. Therapy is a shared process and so we do the work together, safely and with your needs leading us
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Transactional Analysis from an Integrative Perspective. (4 years, Masters Level / level 7). I have been practicing for five years, in London first then Manchester.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
