Hi my name is Nicky, I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist, Life Coach and NLP , based in , Rodney Street Liverpool . I deal with many issues, including depression, relationship issues, divorce, anxiety (generalised anxiety disorder), self-esteem, abuse, anger management, bi-polar, addictions, family issues and bereavement. I also work a lot with children and adolescents.
Throughout our lives we experience difficulties that we may find hard to deal with. Knowing that you are not on your own and talking through your emotions may be helpful.
My approach is non-directive and I aim to provide a safe environment, where you will not feel under pressure or judged, this allows you to explore and make sense of your own feelings and thoughts. I will work alongside you and at a pace that it right for you. I am aware that everyone progresses at different stages, this is why I adapt my sessions to meet and suit your individual needs.
I offer both short term counselling ( up to 6 weeks) and long term (6 weeks or more ) which is based on your needs and discussed at our first meeting.
At our initial meeting we will create a contract together outlining how many sessions, the length of sessions, confidentiality and boundaries, we will review after a couple of sessions to ensure that you are getting the best out of therapy and discuss if you would like the sessions to continue.
