About me and my therapy practice
My name is Nichola Ttidmarsh, I offer counselling and psychotherapy services in a purpose built, wheelchair friendly, safe environment.
I am a relational integrative therapist, and my hope is that our relationship will develop into a comfortable yet professional place where you can be yourself and that you experience that I am genuine in wanting to help you to make your own choices about your life and concerns. I have been supporting vulnerable children and adults for many years, as a Social Worker, Advocate and supporting adults and young people with Drug and Alcohol Addictions. These experiences highlighted to me, the need for therapeutic support for these vulnerable people, rather than a solution based and often practical approach to the behaviours that were leading to their difficulties.
Therefore, I retrained to be a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, it was essential to me that people had a safe and tranquil space to come and explore any behaviours, thoughts or feelings that were causing them distress in their lives, so I created Tidmarsh Timber Hut.
Tidmarsh Timber Hut is a beautiful Shepherd’s Hut located in East Devon, offering peace, confidentiality and a place to “just be”. I offer a compassionate and very human response so that you can be real about your problems and together we can move forward. In conjunction with the traditional talking therapies, I can incorporate many creative elements into my practice. These creative approaches are immediately engaging, and you do not feel the pressure of always talking. At times, you may not be able to put your thoughts and feelings into words.
At the very least, Tidmarsh Timber Hut will enable you to have space away from everyday life stress and space and time to reflect.
I am also a Coach for Rock 2 Recovery, supporting military personnel suffering from Post Traumatic Stress.
