Robin Collins MBACP (Accred)
25 Gandy Street
I am a well established counsellor and teacher of counselling based in Exeter. I work with individuals, couples and family relationships, helping to resolve conflict and emotional issues. The focus of my work is to bring freedom from anxiety depression and stress, in a friendly, safe and welcoming setting.
I provide an affordable and professional counselling service based on care, mindfulness and authenticity. You are warmly invited to talk about anything and everything that is troubling your life, in complete confidence, and we can together find a new perspective and achieve real happiness.
I appreciate and honour that each new client brings their unique life experience; words such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, anxiety and addiction are blanket terms for what in each case is a very real and suffering person. I therefore promise to provide a safe space in which to explore and resolve your deepest feelings, fears and needs.
Counselling sessions are usually for one hour and once weekly, but I endeavour to be flexible in meeting the needs of my clients.
I offer individual, couples and family counselling and work particularly with relationship issues.
I also work closely with a team of experienced counsellors; if I cannot help directly, I will be pleased to refer you to someone who can.
I am a qualified teacher and practising university lecturer. I currently teach Integrative Counselling at the highly regarded Iron Mill College in Exeter, and hold workshops and individual teaching in mindfulness and meditation.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have and Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and am a fully Accredited Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I am also a qualified teacher in adult education, with many years experience working in creative industries. I hold courses in meditation and workshops in mindfulness and magic. I am a tutor at the Iron Mill Institute in Exeter and a registered lecturer for Worcester University.
I studied Philosophy and Psychology at Liverpool University and subsequently completed an eight year experiential course in meditation in the western esoteric tradition.
I was a Samaritan for many years, and served as a Trustee for Birmingham Samaritans. I have also served as a voluntary counsellor for the Margaret Jackson Centre in Exeter.
