We support people to brave their day, their way, to lead mentally healthier and braver lives, in uncertain times.

Surviving & Thriving

to increase 

everyday mental health wellness 

Hello we are Charley and Colin.

We never thought when we set up our Mental Health practice back in 2017, to lead brave and mentally fitter lives in uncertain times, just how apt it would be in the global Coronavirus pandemic & existential crisis.

Together we bring 67 years of accredited therapeutic and leadership practice. We hold full Disclosure Scotland (PVG scheme), insurance & professional body membership.

In light of the global crisis, our focus is now to offer safe spaces to talk on telephone or online counselling or coaching with individuals (from 15years) and employees, to manage anxiety, stress, loss & bereavement and fears to be their mentally, bravest best, while working from home, care-giving, juggling family and learning from times of uncertainty.

We support people to survive and thrive in 3 ways: 

  1. In-person, Telephone or online       counselling or coaching 
  2. Mental Health Podcast 
  3. Facilitation, Workshops & Online Learning 


About Charley

I’m a hope-a-holic who is learning every day to ditch my terrifying fears, anxieties and self-defeating beliefs in order to practice living and leading my bravest life. 

About Colin

It has taken me over 40 years to discover it’s actually fine to be the person I am. I’m a person-centred counsellor, psychotherapist, musician, Dad, husband and proud, enthusiastic Dyslexic, who can spell words over 20 different ways.

Suzi's story

“When I was first recommended to meet with Charley I was sceptical, I didn’t really understand how she could help me.
However after regular meet ups with her she made me aware of myself, the way I spoke about myself and my body language…”

Garry's story

“My Experience with doing life coaching was that I always felt comfortable when doing each hourly session. I always felt I could be honest with myself and just open up about what I was going through which was really rewarding for me as I’ll be honest at the start I was a bit nervous about doing this as it’s something I’ve never done before but Charley provided an environment which was safe and quiet…”

Jennifer's story

“I am certainly beginning to live a phenomenal life after what has been a very rocky 12 months. Involvement in the coaching sessions over this difficult period in my life has reminded me that I am bold and brave and have all the answers in my head I just need to pause and take time to consider my strengths and qualities…”

Pamela's story

“Bravery coaching with Charley came at the perfect time in my life as I was really struggling to cope with some personal & family issues. Charley enabled me to focus my energy on my strengths and to concentrate on the positives…”

Joanne's story

“I started my journey with Charley as my guide almost 12 months ago. She has a photograph on the wall; the steep and perilous summit of the Matterhorn. That image fascinates me. In the last four years I have gone from a single art lesson in my dining room to being the CEO and Founder of a multi-award winning business and charity…”
