About me and my therapy practice
Hello. My name is Nicky and I am a registered counsellor working with both adults and young people aged 12 and over.
People come to counselling for many reasons. You may have a specific issue you would like to work on, or you could feel stuck, anxious, depressed or generally overwhelmed. Maybe you do not know what is wrong, just that you feel that something is missing. We can work together on what you would like to change in your life, enabling you to make sense of your experiences so that life can feel more manageable and fulfilling.
I am committed to supporting young people in building their resilience and self-esteem, promoting confidence and emotional wellbeing. Adolescence is a time of change. The opportunity to talk to someone outside of the family unit where they can be heard and valued in a confidential space, can help make sense of it all.
I offer a safe and reflective environment which is free of judgement, providing you with the time and freedom to explore your thoughts and feelings.
I have a small private practice in Newbury, as well as working as a school counsellor. I also volunteer at a local counselling service for young people.
I have an enhanced DBS certificate for adults and children.
To maintain and develop my practice, I receive regular supervision. I also strive to keep abreast of the latest training to enhance my practice and offer a quality service.
I am not able to offer you a face to face appointment right now, but can offer video sessions using Zoom or Skype, or telephone if you prefer.
You can contact me on 07784 807595. If I am unable to speak to you at that time, please leave a message on the confidential voicemail and I will return your call. Alternatively you can email me. I will get back to you within 24 hours, during working hours.
