Hello, I'm Nick and I work in Bath and Chippenham with individual adults (aged 18+), using a gentle, broad and deep Integrative and Humanistic approach, to help find relief from suffering and increase well-being.
Sometimes life is hard; sometimes too hard to bear. The resources we might normally have to face difficulty to stay on an even-keel can at times no longer feel enough to deal with things alone. This difficulty may be a new, temporary, event or equally a long-standing issue. This difficulty may refer to our relationship with our environment, with others and/or with ourselves. In short we can feel off-balance and, in this, can struggle to cope.
At these times to talk confidentially with someone impartial, who will not judge you, can be enormously helpful. I believe in working gently, at your pace, so that you may feel ‘Held’ enough in whatever brings you here. I will support you while we work to help you find your own way forward; to again find your balance.
My approach is a Holistic and Relational one. In essence, I will view and work with you as an unique individual. I will always hold in mind how you relate to your environment, to yourself and with others, including to me. I work largely in the ‘Here and Now’, which means I will be as authentic as possible in how we both are in relationship. This, I believe, will provide new perspectives to view your difficulties to better find other ways forward for you. I believe this relational way of working is also Grounding and allows for better Connection.
To work for greater awareness may sound good…and it can come at a cost. It can seem overwhelmingly scary to dare to look at, and dare to feel, what lurks in our shadows. This is where it pays to work slowly and gently; to work with compassion and tenderness. In time, I believe that it is possible to develop a way of being that becomes increasingly compassionate towards our fears and our shame. In time, with compassion, you are likely to feel safe enough to trust your strength to challenge your fears, bringing light and life to parts long-forgotten.
At the heart of my approach is my belief that each of us, from our deepest levels, knows what is right for ourselves. I believe in the power each of us holds to ultimately find the Will to put our growing awareness into action. This may look like affirmative action for some; for others, it may look like finding acceptance and compassion for ourselves. Whichever, I believe the power of therapy is to empower us to find greater support, balance and fulfilment.
