Colin Sanders

Colin James Sanders holds an MA in Cultural Anthropology and is currently doing his PhD with the Taos Institute on the Future of Narrative Therapy.

Colin has a long and creative history with the world wide narrative therapy community and has taught his craft with the Vancouver School of Narrative Therapy since 1993.

Colin was a co-founder of Vancouver’s Peak House – a world-renowned narrative therapy program for youth struggling with drugs and alcohol and the sex trade. He also worked as a director with Yaletown Family Therapy for many years and recently finished a 14 month stint working as a clinical director on the Canadian Federal Government’s $110 million research grant with homeless persons who struggle with housing, mental health and drug and alcohol abuse. Colin is also (whew!) Faculty Program Coordinator of City University of Seattle’s Vancouver M.A. Counseling Psychology Program, where he is a senior faculty member and has taught courses since 1989.

Through Metanoia Consulting, Colin presents narrative therapy workshops throughout North America and abroad and – most recently in Inuvik, NWT and Havana, Cuba. He has published numerous academic clinical papers and book chapters as well as literary publications on poetry and poetics.

Apart from being the most well read person we know in the areas poetry, theology, philosophy and fiction, Colin enjoys swimming and having a well-poured pint with friends at The Whip.
