About our Counselling Service

Choosing the right counsellor  is extremely important. You are in safe hands with Colin & Brenda at Oak Counselling


Introducing Colin & Brenda Lamb

Colin and Brenda spent 17 years working with New Tribes Mission in Papua New Guinea. We worked for nine years in pioneer church planting in a tribal area in the Highlands. Then I was involved in the leadership of the mission and also in Member Care and counselling with our missionaries. 

In 1992 we left Papua New Guinea and the following year went to work in Latvia in the Baltic States where I was Involved in ministry for seven years, in Bible teaching, leadership training and taking seminars. Part of my ministry was in Member Care and Counselling. I had the privilege of teaching a number of Pastoral Care, Member Care and Biblical Counselling courses.

In 1998 we returned to work with New Tribes Mission for ten years, where I was responsible for developing the Missionary Training Course and worked with the team there training missionaries for cross-cultural church planting overseas.

I served as a Pastor in a church in Lilbourne near Rugby, from 2008 until 2018. We moved to live in the Grimsby area in May 2018

I have the privilege of serving as a consultant in Biblical Counselling, Member Care and as a Culture and Language Acquisition Trainer. This comes out of our experience in mission overseas and on home staff and it expresses my heart for Member Care. I seek to be a resource to Churches and the mission community.
