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. 

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. 

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, especially gambling addiction 
  • Feeling unable to cope
  • Childhood trauma 
  • Childhood Sexual Abuse 
  • Rape and Sexual Assault
  • Generally feeling unhappy
  • Panic attacks
  • Low self-esteem

Seeking counselling can be one of the most helpful steps we ever take in our life. 

I am registered with the BACP (British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists).

My first session

I offer a free 15 minute chat on the phone to help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you. Alternatively, you can book an initial session and we can take it from there. 

Sessions are 50 minutes in duration and normally the same day and time each week, unless agreed otherwise. During the first session I gather further information and explore what has brought you to counselling and the goals you want to achieve. Sometimes you don't have a goal and that is okay. 

I offer open-ended therapy, so you can decide how many sessions are right for you.

I look forward to hearing from you.
