About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I’m Nicola. I offer a calm, safe and empathic space so that you can talk through your troubles. I am registered with BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

Are you wanting to make a change in your life, to be heard, to heal, to be understood, to begin a new understanding of yourself or maybe all of the above? I work with people just like you. The sessions can be face to face in Basingstoke, on Zoom or the telephone; whatever suits you best. 

I work with clients at their own pace and I feel passionate that we build a good relationship together. I believe that finding a new perspective in a supportive space will be empowering for you. By discovering more self-awareness, you can make the right choices for you and as a result of working together, you can change the ways in which you think, feel and act and also understand the ways others react to you.

Some of the areas that I can help you with;

  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Loss
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Relationship Issues
  • Addiction
  • Feeling unable to cope
  • Childhood trauma
  • Rape and Sexual Assault
  • Generally feeling unhappy
  • Emotional eating
  • Panic attacks
  • Low self-esteem

Seeking counselling can be one of the most helpful steps we ever take in our life. By reading this profile you have made that first step. It would be a privilege to work with you.
