About me and my therapy practice
My name is Nikki, I am an integrative counsellor who uses different theories, techniques and materials whilst working with children and young people in order to help them develop coping strategies and resolve any issues they may be dealing with.
I am a qualified person centered therapist but since qualifying I have gained qualifications in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) I am a recognised member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) who are a regulatory body for counsellors and I follow their Ethical Practice Framework, allowing me to maintain safe and ethical practice. I partake in professional supervision with a registered supervisor outside of school to ensure the quality of my work, and here any information shared relating to clients will be confidential.
I am passionate about helping young people work through their feelings and emotions during this sometimes challenging stage of their lives. I am not there to give advice, but to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to talk about your feelings and emotions and to find a way together to a life that fits you. Sometimes the most difficult challenge to overcome is to ask for help, but by doing that first step will begin your journey to a better understanding of yourself and your emotions.
Specialising in children and young adults. I have been in education for 20+ years, working as a teacher, nursery deputy manager and HLTA supporting and delivering an alternative curriculum to children who are unable to access it at the age appropriate level.
My first session
I offer a free 30 min, initial consultation on the phone or via zoom, for us both to meet and talk about what counselling involves and talk about how you are feeling at the moment. Its important that you feel I am someone you are happy to talk, so having this initial free session will hopefully help you decide this and for you to ask any questions you have.
