Nicky Carlisle - MBACP
Nicky Carlisle - Integrative Counsellor in South London
Diploma in Integrative Counselling (The Minster Centre)
I am an experienced Counsellor offering short-term and long-term therapy, providing a safe and confidential place to talk.
It's not always easy to make that first step to sharing our most private thoughts and feelings...but a safe, quiet time at an exploratory session offered over two weeks, may allow some needed space for you to look at life's difficulties and problems and also to decide whether therapy is what you would like to commit to right now. I hope to offer that space for your questions and uncertainties and am trained to support and listen to every person I see with respect and integrity and with no assumptions. This exploratory session is 50 min and will help you decide if you wish for more.
Our sessions together are 50 minutes at the same time each week. The fee is normally £50. This is payable either in cash or cheque at the end of each session, or online transfer. (Please see below for limited therapy in cases of financial difficulties).
Training, qualifications & experience
Managing conflict within relationship or dealing with life can be challenging and difficult. Learning to manage these conflicts can be a life opportunity for growth and change, leading to deeper understanding of ourselves and those around us.
As an integrative counsellor I draw on a range of therapeutic approaches to support people who find themselves struggling to maintain enduring and gratifying personal relationships; and who may find they need support with emotional concerns including anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties.
I offer a safe space for you to look at and explore what is happening in your life. I will work with you to identify and understand your various concerns and and the nature of your difficulties, looking at new ways of approaching those difficulties to help make changes or to look at alternate ways of relating.
As a Counsellor for my private practice and a busy charity both based in London, I care for and support my clients with a range of emotional difficulties and relationship problems, bereavement, personality disorders and adult survivors of childhood abuse.
Whilst I have experience in a spectrum of psychological difficulties, I have a specialist interest in working closely with my clients to support difficulties with trust, intimacy, dependency and loneliness. Sometimes memories or future worries may further affect these aspects of our lives.
In addition to my work at the charity I see clients in a low-cost psychotherapy referral service alongside my private practice.
Having worked with young children in an educational environment and supported people affected by emotional and physical abuse in a national organisation; I have come to believe therapy to be a rewarding process of discovery, healing and change.
I am currently involved in further research as part of my MA in Integrative Psychotherapy (The Minster Centre – current)
