New Colin Counselling, Colin Family Centre, Pembroke Loop Road, Dunmurry, Belfast BT17 0PH.

We offer Individual Counselling for which there is no charge and is provided by fully qualified and experienced Counsellors.


  • There are times during our lives that we may experience emotional difficulties or upheaval due to circumstances or events that have occurred recently or in the past.
  • Counselling is an opportunity to talk in private with a professional Counsellor about the issues affecting you in a non-judgmental, supportive relationship. The counsellor will work with you to help you find ways of managing those issues.
  • We provide counselling support on an individual basis for wide range of issues.  During counselling you will be able to discuss these issues with your counsellor in a safe, confidential and supportive environment and how they are affecting you with the aim to explore and resolve them.
  • Through the support and understanding that counselling provides, individuals can gain a clearer understanding of themselves and make healthier, more positive choices in their lives.  New Colin Counselling respects the uniqueness of each person and helps the individual to explore a range of options in their lives, so that each person comes to resolve their difficulties in ways that are most suited to them.
  • We will invite you to a first meeting with a counsellor to talk about your individual needs and consider next steps.
  • Counselling appointments are once weekly and last for about an hour.
  • We offer an initial six appointments but if you require more this will be discussed with you and your counsellor.
