Who is Chris?


Whilst running nightclubs a few years ago, I could never have imagined I would be working in the world of wellbeing! Yet here I am - thoroughly enjoying helping a wide range of people with their mental health.

I have received a lot of help with my emotional health over the years, so I have developed a passion for helping other people to sharpen their own skills. 

I like to help people understand how the events of their past influence their present, often completely out of their own awareness. I am also very engaged in helping people move towards their outcomes and goals.


Clients tell me that I am a warm and easy person to talk to, as well being as reliable and insightful. 

Chris Colcomb Cottingham

I have trained to a high level and use some really cool disciplines to help people. I trained both in the UK and California for my Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) studies (yes, I know it’s a mouthful!). I am a fully qualified and accredited level 7 Psychotherapist, and I continue to develop my path in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy. These disciplines give me the tools to understand, empathise and offer treatment to people in a flexible way that really makes sense to my clients. I have been working with, and making a difference to, my clients for around eight years.

I also recently worked with Life Skills Hub helping them deliver a wide range of interventions with young people in three schools in Hull, Snaith and Scunthorpe. It was great to leave those kids with resilience and a more positive outlook for their future.

Missy Counselling
Honey Psychotherapy
Tigger Coaching

In my spare time, I work voluntarily for a local psychotherapy training, and sit on several committees. I also help organise and sponsor the Humber Counselling and Psychotherapy Conference.


I enjoy walking far too much – and often love to disappear on 10 mile walks around my local area, and beyond. 


I have two cats, Honey and Missy – who you might even meet if you undertake sessions with me. My tabby cat Tigger is also pictured, but sadly passed away. He remains in my thoughts and also here!
