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
  • Self-development
  • Conflict resolution
  • Gambling
  • 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.
