Hello, my name is Colin Beames,
I am an experienced counselling and organisational psychologist who works with adults in a number of areas including:
- Careers advice and career transition, including mid-life career change
- Mid-life changes / crisis
- Workplace issues and concerns
- Anxiety and stress management
- Work performance
- Conflict resolution
- Coaching and mentoring
My first career was as a civil engineer working in senior management and consulting, and then I made a career change to psychology, focusing on the counselling and organisational sectors. My honours thesis is on mid-life career change, and I am skilled in providing support, mentoring and coaching when people are seeking career alternatives, and/or addressing workplace and personal issues.
I have a sound understanding of business and organisation functions, including how people experience work related stressors. I work with people across a broad spectrum including business owners and executives, through to front-line workers. My style is unassuming and conversational; I ask questions that enable clients to identify patterns and develop fresh insights.
I have written a number of books including ‘Aligning Workforce and Business Strategies’ ‘How to Manage Your Workforce in the Digital Age’, and in conjunction with my wife ‘Exiting the Gambling Addiction’.
I draw upon a wide variety of therapeutic styles, including EMDR.
