About me and my therapy practice

My name is Nikki and I am here to support you when you are ready to take your first step on your counselling journey. I am a fully qualified and BACP registered counsellor with experience in working with many aspects that impact a person’s mental health. In addition to having previously worked as a Samaritan and for two local Mental Health Charities, I have spent over ten years supporting new parents’ mental health. As a qualified Counsellor, I am passionate about making a positive impact on people’s mental health and improving their relationship with themselves and others. I work with Individuals and Couples when the work is focussed on relationships.

Practice description

There are many stages of our life that will present change and challenges that are difficult to navigate, and it is quite normal to feel ‘stuck’ and unable to move forward on your own – this is where I can help.

I can offer a friendly, warm welcome and a safe space to speak openly and honestly about your thoughts, feelings, and experiences in life without fear of judgement or unwanted advice. As we build a positive therapeutic relationship together, you will have the autonomy to take your counselling journey in whatever direction you wish, and I will be alongside you every step of the way, supporting you to gain a better understanding of your feelings, feel more hopeful about your future, and discover which coping strategies will work for you. I work as an integrated person-centred therapist which means I use a range of counselling techniques which allows me to provide an individual approach that will be most appropriate for your needs.

A significant amount of my counselling work has been helping clients with feelings of Anxiety and Depression. Working through the underlying issue(s) will often bring up deep rooted feelings around bereavement and loss experiences, relationship difficulties and earlier childhood trauma. Discovering and understanding our own self during this process is empowering and can change your perspective and approach to the challenges you are facing and the relationships you struggle with. Our connection with other human beings can often be a significant source of psychological distress and I enjoy working with both Individuals and Couples to improve this aspect.

Often the thought of speaking to someone about these issues can feel daunting and difficult which is totally normal. Experience shows that it is sometimes easier to talk to a counsellor, not involved in your life, than it is to talk to family and friends – it is just important to find the right counsellor for you. I am here to support you in this journey. 

My first session

When you first make contact with me, I will always reply within 24 hours. This will be to instigate a short telephone conversation to find out what you need from Counselling and whether I am a good fit to meet those needs. 

If you choose to leave an email address rather than a telephone number in your initial Enquiry, please be sure to check your spam/ junk mail box as my reply may slip into there.  I will always text or email you first to arrange a mutually convenient time to speak to protect your confidentiality and privacy.  I will be happy to answer any questions you have in this initial telephone call and look forward to speaking with you.
