About me and my therapy practice
Welcome to Nicola Patch counselling and wellbeing services.
Are you feeling a ‘bit stuck’ and lost direction in life? Or would you like to tackle things in the present or past?Perhaps you are experiencing significant events in your life?
Having experienced counselling myself, I understand its empowering and life-changing potential. Bringing awareness of the particular environment in which confusion moves towards clarity and distress paves the way for growth and healing.
I take great care to build a genuine and compassionate therapeutic relationship, which is based on trust and respect. creating a safe space, free from judgement, where you are fully accepted and listened to.
Working in a Person-Centred way, I recognise everyone’s experience is unique. I will respect where you are right now, allowing you to set the pace and where we go. With empathy, I strive to truly understand what life is like for you. Listening carefully, I will offer observations and reflections, helping you explore what is at the root of your distress. With the right support, we can discover inner resources we never even knew we had and make choices that enrich our lives.
