About me and my therapy practice

I am Nicky Strouts, a fully qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an evidence based therapy used for a wide range of mental health conditions including Anxiety Disorders, Fear, Depression/Low Mood, Grief and Bereavement, Phobias Stress, Self Esteem, Anger Issues, and Trauma Related Difficulties.

As a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, whilst working with my clients, in a safe confidential, and accepting environment, my approach is supportive and compassionate. I believe this will help my clients on their journey of self discovery, growth and change. To enable you to reach your aims, we will work together collaboratively, in a trusting, and non judgemental way, looking at your thoughts, emotions and behaviours.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a solution focused approach, with the aim of helping you to live a richer fuller life. 

Practice description

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence based talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think, feel and behave.

CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and behaviours are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can keep you in a vicious cycle. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy focuses on changing our automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to emotional difficulties including depression, and anxiety.

CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts.

One of the greatest benefits of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is that it helps you to develop coping skills that can help you now, and in the future.

My first session

Getting help can often be the hardest part, especially when you are talking about sensitive information for the very first time. If you do decide to get in touch, your call will be received in a warm, welcoming, and sensitive manner.

Next steps:

I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation

In order to start and establish a trusting relationship, I offer an empathetic, non judgemental, and understanding environment for you to feel safe in, and to decide collaboratively, if the therapy I offer is the right one for you

Arrange a first appointment at a mutually convenient day and time

What to expect from your first therapy session:

1. Getting to know each other

2. Establish a trusting relationship for you to be able to talk openly to me in a non judgmental, calm, and safe environment

3. Explore what your aims are and discuss collaboratively how we can work together to meet them
