About me and my therapy practice
My name is Nicole and I'm a fully qualified and highly professional Therapeutic Counsellor and Life Coach.
I know from personal experience that the challenges life throws at us can have a huge impact on our emotional wellbeing, and cause us to feel overwhelmed and not in control of our own lives at times. This can feel distressing, confusing and lead us to act in ways that aren’t in line with our true selves.
Taking the first step to seeking help with anything that is causing a block or interrupting in the life you want to live can be scary and daunting, but also incredibly brave.
Counselling provides a safe space for you to explore what’s not working so well in your life right now and gives you the strength to make the changes that are right for you.
I truly believe that we all have the capacity to grow, flourish and make changes to be the person we truly are. Counselling will provide the emotional space for this this process to happen.
Some of the issues that I work through with my clients are; anxiety, low self esteem, depression, addiction, bereavement, trauma and abuse.
I'm highly experienced, having worked in private practice for many years as well as with a bereavement agency helping adults as well as children and young people negotiate their way through the difficult path of loss and bereavement.
I also work with children and young people, privately and within secondary schools within the borough.
I am a qualified Life Coach as well as Counsellor, so will tailor your sessions to the kind of therapy that works best for you. There is no one size fits all, and my approach is not to judge or prescribe, but to work in collaboration with you to get the results and outcomes that you want and need, without judgement.
I will provide the you with the time and space to explore any issues or problems that you are experiencing so that we can work together to overcome any obstacles to enable you to live the fulfilled life that you deserve.
My first session
During the first session I will listen to you and really hear your story. We can then begin to establish what the issues are that are causing an impact upon your wellbeing.
There is no obligation to book further sessions as this is chance to see if I can help and if therapy is something you would like to explore further.
I will respond to whatever problems, obstacles or issues you are having and between us we will agree how we might like to work together to address these.
It is very much a collaborative working process that will hopefully empower you make the changes that are right for you.
