About me and my therapy practice

Need some space to talk? Maybe I can help. I’m Nikki, an experienced, compassionate, down to earth Humanistic Counsellor working with adults and young people 16-18. This is what one of my clients said about our work together– “I wanted to thank you for all the work you have done with me…our sessions really have changed my life for the better… I will always be extremely grateful to you for your listening ear and support” (quote used with the client’s permission).

I have worked in different settings in the past including the NHS, charities and a sixth form college. I work with wide variety of client issues but because we are all different, please do get in touch with me to discuss what is troubling you. I offer an initial free 15 minute telephone consultation where you can get an idea of what it would be like to work with me and I can check I am the right person to help you.

Particular areas I work with are depression and low mood; anxiety, low self-esteem and lack of confidence, the “I don’t know what’s wrong - I should be happy but I’m not” feeling; abuse - domestic, sexual, rape (male and female) and sexual violence; adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse; bullying; life changes and transitions including divorce, relationship breakdown, loss, bereavement, life changing illness; boarding school/ cared for childhood experiences; trauma; counselling students.

I work from comfortable rooms in both central Exeter and Lyme Regis in West Dorset.

I believe counselling is an investment and that the relationship we have with ourselves is the most important. It takes commitment and work but I have seen counselling change lives. I can’t promise that the journey will always be easy but I will be with you on that journey to support you and ensure your emotional safety. I am gentle and compassionate but I will challenge my clients if I think it is therapeutically necessary. I hope you decide to take the first step and get in touch.
