About Colin

Colin Longworth is a psychologist who has been registered since 2008, having come to be a registered psychologist via what he sometimes calls a “Long and windy road”. Having studied as a mature-aged student, mainly while working full time in other settings. He is aware from his own experience of what it can be like trying to “juggle” various competing needs.

He says his interest in Psychology and counseling can be traced back to (amongst other things) what he calls his “benevolent curiosity”. Or a curiosity as to how an individual or couple came to be where they are now, in life and seeking some sort of assistance.
