About me and my therapy practice
If you're here, your probably finding life tough at the moment. Perhaps Covid and its ramifications have really got you down? Or maybe your anxiety levels are going through the roof? You may be wondering what's happening in your relationships? Perhaps you've suffered a bereavement? Or maybe something disturbing has happened that you just need to talk through. You don't have to be ill to seek therapy - but it can help you find the path you want to be on in your life. If you come to see me, together we will find ways to alleviate your distress, understand what's going on and how, with awareness, things can change.
My name is Nicola Bradshaw. I am a warm and enthusiastic humanistic counsellor with a creative and playful approach. I will give you a safe and confidential space to unburden your worries, be super-attentive and attune to your feelings, thoughts and concerns. Whether it is any of the above, or something completely different, together we can start to unravel whatever troubles you.
I am a fully qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist registered with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I completed a BA Hons in Person centred Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University Of Salford in 2019.
My specialities include working with Depression and Anxiety as a result of Bereavement and Loss (In its many forms). I have extensive experience in working with a wide variety of clients and presenting issues.
I can offer sessions online by zoom or by telephone, or as we walk in the outdoors (Walk and Talk therapy). I can also offer sessions at an office within my private practice situated in the village of Y Felinheli, Gwynedd, North Wales.
I work in an integrative way that is tailored to the needs of the person and my approach is facilitative rather than directive. I draw on aspects of Person centred Theory, Existential, Gestalt, CBT and compassion focused therapies. I offer to make you feel truly listened to without judgement and support you with care. Contact me to book your free 15 minute consultation and see how we may work together through your issues.
