About me

There are times in all our lives when we could do with a helping hand. So why is asking for help sometimes such a hard thing to do?

When I first meet a client, they are often very nervous and uncertain about whether they should be coming for counselling at all. They may be worried that their ‘troubles’ are not ‘big’ enough and that they should just ‘Pull themselves together’ or as one of my long-term clients would phrase it ‘I just need to have a word with myself’. They fear that because they have sought out counselling that this means that they are somehow weak or broken. To this I always reply

“I find that it takes a great amount of strength to recognise that there is something in our life that is causing us pain or dis-comfort. Something that seems too big for us to ‘get our heads around’. Something that cannot be ‘fixed’ by a stiff upper lip and a ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ attitude. Whether this is to do with something that has happen in our past, which is still affecting our day to day lives, or something wholly in the present, awareness that this is something we are no longer willing to allow to control our lives means that we have decided to take that step to a better understanding of ourselves and that is a brave move to make”.

I have yet to meet a weak client. What I have met is a wide variety of people that for various reasons have decided to take control of their futures. That is not to say that the process of therapy is not sometimes difficult. If it were easy we wouldn’t have any problems in the first place.

Taking the first step into counselling does not need to be scary.

You’re not weak, or broken, or useless, or crazy.

You may be tired, or run-down, or self-doubtful or confused. But you are strong and you are brave and you are taking that first step to a better understanding of who you are.

Training, qualifications & experience

My name is Nicola Parker and I have been training and working in the counselling sector since 2009. I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Humanistic Counselling

I completed my degree with The University of Nottingham which is a centre of excellence world-wide.

Since 2014 I have been running my private counselling practice in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire. I have over 400 hours’ experience of counselling both adults, young people, and children within individual and group settings.

I am a registered member of the British Association of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am passionate about counselling and believe that it can have a massive contribution to our health and well-being. I believe that each of us has the capacity to change and grow and plan our own journey with support. My approach is person-centred and based around the theory first introduced by Carl Rogers. Person-centred counselling is tailor made for the individual, as the client is in control of their own therapy and everyone is unique with their own insights, beliefs and values. We can work together to enable you to reach inside of yourself to find a way forward that works for you.
