About me

Hello my name is Nicola, thank you for taking time to look at my profile. My practice is integrative counselling, working with the local community counselling people with anxiety, trauma, bereavement, depression, childhood abuse, domestic violence, relationship issues, among a number of issues. I specialise in the impact of childhood abuse, sexual abuse and domestic violence. Many years of working within the field of care and social work brings with it an understanding and empathy with my clients. My qualifications as a social worker, counsellor, and nursery nurse contribute to the skills I bring to support you. I have a BA Hons in Applied Social Studies and am a BACP individual member working under their code of ethics, values and principles.

It is a difficult decision choosing which counsellor is right for you. Your first session will be free to enable you to decide whether we will work together. You can be assured of a commitment from me within our working relationship. We will arrange appointments at a time to suit you. You will be in a safe, warm, confidential space which you can talk.

Venue
Glastonbury, The Red Brick Building
The delicious smells from the cafe greet you on arrival. Walking up the stairs you will pass local art work displays. We will meet at a seated area on the landing. The room contains a combination colour of orange and red brick work. The sofas are leather, comfy and cosy. The room is at the end of the building in a safe private space.

Parking is free directly outside the building.

I also work in Wells, Somerset.

Would you prefer to talk to me on the phone or face to face?
