Nicola Pilgrim MBACP Accred
I provide a quiet, non judgemental and confidential space in which we can explore the issues which concern you.
You may feel 'stuck' and not know how to deal with a difficult issue. It could be that you are having difficulties with relationships with other people. You may have suffered a loss that you can't adjust to. Or, you may be unhappy for no apparent reason.
Low- self esteem, depression, relationship issues, bullying, addictions, bereavement, anger management, anxiety, abuse - these are the most frequent types of issues I encounter in my work.
Listening is a fundamental part of counselling and I will actively listen, giving feedback from time to time, guiding you to explore the problem you bring, allowing you to come to a new understanding of what is happening to you and why. There will be no rush, you can go at your own pace.
Counselling offers the opportunity to explore your past and present experiences and how they may be impacting on how your life is now. Whatever is happening for you can't be taken away, but some light might be shone on it and some understanding be found, that helps you to live in an easier way.
I won't tell you what to do, but I will help you to make decisions or discover what is underneath what is happening to you for yourself.
Why not take this opportunity to talk through what is on your mind in a safe and confidential environment with me, your counsellor?
I value your privacy – all calls and emails are dealt with by me alone and are strictly confidential.
I offer a FREE email back up service if it is required.
So give me a call today so we can make a start on giving you a better future.

Couples Counselling/Relationship Issues
If a relationship starts to break down, it can really help to come to see me.
I will be happy to offer my skills to all couples, including same sex partners, to help you both through this difficult time in your relationship.
Whilst in therapy, you will get the chance to speak of your feelings for each other and your feelings about your relationship.
By coming to see me, you will be taking very important steps that can help to bring about reconciliation between you.
If you come to feel that that is not possible or not what you want, then counselling can help you achieve an amicable split. This can be particularly valuable when there are children and property involved.
The sooner you start the more chance you have of reaching the successful outcome you are hoping for.
