About me and my therapy practice

My name is Nikki Howes I identify as Demi gender my gender pronouns are She/They.

I am a trauma informed Integrative counsellor and Addiction specialist providing both short- and long-term therapy adults and young people in Kingston Upon Thames and throughout the UK.

My work is founded on the assumption that human beings are imaginative, resourceful and unique. If you're looking for therapy it's likely that you're feeling 'stuck' and have forgotten about the qualities that make you uniquely you.

Practice description

My practice is based in Kingston Upon Thames and I also offer online and telephone counselling across the United Kingdom. Remote sessions allow you to access therapy in the comfort of your own home without the need for travel.

I have over 14 years as an Addictions psychotherapist within charity, NHS and private settings. I hold a Masters in Addiction Psychology and Counselling with London South Bank University and am accredited with Addiction Professionals. I am BACP accredited. 

My first session

No matter what the issue is counselling can help shed new light on problems and help you understand your feelings.

I like to think of therapy as helping people who feel “stuck” get “unstuck.” My hope is to provide an inclusive service and approach tailor made to the client.

My experience and areas of interest include working with Neurodiversity, LGBTQ+ clients, Generalised Anxiety, Trauma including historic childhood sexual and emotional abuse, family estrangement and clients diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue.

The first session is an opportunity for you to see if I am the right therapist to support you and for me to assess your needs and goals in counselling, this might involve a creative assessment process.
