About me

Welcome

My name is Nicola Priestman, I am a licensed and experienced psychotherapist and counsellor. I run a private practice in Preston, Lancashire. My experience and success as a therapist comes from several years in practice working in both education, health and charitable settings.

I have worked for 1 Point Northwest in Bolton, delivering psychotherapy on a 1:1 basis to adults with a wide range of mental health difficulties and at Lancaster University providing therapy and support to the students. I have also worked for the prison service as a therapeutic community worker with the  substance misuse team facilitating group workshops. In addition I have worked for a charity providing therapy to adolescents in high schools across Lancashire.

I am  professionally registered as a therapist with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy  (BACP) and I am on the Counsellors Directory. They are both  public records of psychotherapists and counsellors who have met the standards for professional registration. The standards cover training, supervision, continuing professional development and a contractual commitment to the (BACP) Ethical Framework. Which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.

What I offer 

FREE consultation which will last for approximately 30 minutes - this provides an opportunity to establish what the  problem/s may be, what we can do about this and to see whether we can work together.


1:1 therapy sessions on a weekly basis, each session will last for 50 minutes.

How can therapy  help?

Psychotherapy can liberate you from the isolation and loneliness of living with what can often seem unbearable. How? - by providing you with an opportunity  to explore those feelings with someone, who is completely on the outside looking in, rather than with a friend, family, work colleague or other. It also offers you  a safe, non judgemental and confidential space.

As a result of therapy, you may find that you can now deal with the things that once seemed impossible and face challenges, take risks and even gain a higher sense of purpose /self awareness. By bringing your true self out of storage, it allows you to live a self fulfilling life. Remember when your body and mind work the way nature intended, your spirit soars and so do you!!.
