About Nick Halpin

Nick Halpin, M.A., B.A., PhD., C.Psychol., Dip. Couns.

I was born in 1942 in Scotland. After a childhood and teenage years spent in London, I went to Cambridge University. Then I taught for several years at a school near Worcester. It was there that I met my wife and her two children. Shortly afterwards we moved to Durham so I could study for a PhD in social psychology.

Our next move was up to Scotland in 1977 where I opened a student welfare service at St Andrews University. After eight busy years I transferred in 1985 to Dundee University where I directed the Counselling Service until 2005. My wife died in 1989 and three years later I met my present partner.

At Dundee I became a Chartered Psychologist, obtained a Diploma in Person-centred Counselling and gained my counselling accreditation. I have retired to Fife, Scotland. Apart from time with family and friends, interests include reading, writing, walking, photography and cinema.
