About me and my therapy practice

Hi I’m Nikki and I am a qualified person-centred counsellor with a BA (honours) in Counselling, working with adults, children and young people.

I am currently studying a Masters in Contemporary Relationship Studies and can offer couples, families, and small groups counselling sessions.

I am very passionate about counselling and truly believe in the unique connection that person-centred counselling offers. The open, non-judgemental environment offers a safe space to talk where you can be really heard. I feel I am here to ‘walk’ with you on your own counselling journey, to go at your pace and help you find your own answers. I believe counselling is there to offer you the confidential space to talk about any aspect of your life, behaviours, thoughts or feelings that you want to explore. I hope that coming to counselling you are able to feel more empowered and have a deeper understanding of what had brought you to counselling.


Practice description

I work from a person-centred base which is individually tailored to your needs. It can be creative as some people struggle to vocalise their feelings or to understand them and by being creative there are other ways around exploring what is going on for you.  We are all unique and I would like to offer that being person-centred trained, it is not one size fits all. Counselling is about you, finding your answers in a way that suits you and I am able to provide the safe, calm space needed for you to feel valued and truly heard to explore what is going on for you. 

My first session

The first session will be meeting and getting to know each other to ensure you feel comfortable to build that therapeutic relationship. We will go through the agreement and I will answer any questions you may have. If you feel comfortable we can talk about what has brought you to counselling and what you hope to gain from coming.
