About me and my therapy practice

Nicola Richter, DiplPsych - MA; PGDipHE, MBACP (Senior Accredited), UKCP Registered, MBPsS, Fellow HEA

During Covid-19 I am here for you either by phone or video/Skype.

I offer you over 20 years experience of providing this confidential, fully insured service for your emotional, psychological and spiritual matters. My approach is to assist you in: • gaining a deeper awareness of your issues, thoughts, feelings, patterns, 'lessons to learn' • identifying what you may wish to change in your thinking, feeling, behaviour, beliefs and outlook, and what you may want to learn to accept about yourself, others, situations etc. • clarifying your meaning to fulfil your potential • translating insights into lived and experienced reality.

• face-to-face sessions in a relaxing atmosphere. • evening appointments. • Skype sessions. • free off-street parking.

Further: I'm an approved provider for medical healthcare insurances (Aviva, AXA, Cigna, Exeter Family Friends, Helix Health, PruHealth/Vitality Health, WPA).

LANGUAGES: English and German fluently.

My first session

I believe its important that you can make an informed choice. Please call me on: (01727) 750088 for a free initial chat. We can discuss your reasons for coming, any questions you might have about my services, qualifications, experiences, or anything you wish to know about counselling and psychotherapy in general.

After the phone call you can take your time to think about it, or book straight away an initial session. The first session is payable and has the same length (45minutes) as subsequent sessions. Our interaction in this initial session will provide you as much as possible with a good understanding what to expect in further sessions.

STYLE OF THERAPEUTIC SUPERVISION My view of human nature is humanistic. If you like to go beyond 'skills' and beyond seeing clients as pure 'cases' in your supervison, and prefer to explore your own perceptions and experiences in relation to your clients - give me a call. MY SUPERVISION BACKGROUND I have worked at various Universities and Colleges, training others in our profession. In addition to my practice and my academic work, I have presented at national and international conferences, published some articles and been on radio. Feel free to call me and tell me, what your supervision needs or wants might be, and we can discuss how we could work together. All my supervisees have received their BACP accreditation in their first attempt successfully. ACCADEMIC SUPERVISON: I have supervised dissertations in counselling and psychotherapy from Diploma through to MA level. The vast majority of my supervises have obtained 'distinctions' for their dissertations.
