Albert Edward House
My name is Nicola Priestman, I am a licensed and experienced psychotherapist and counsellor. I run a private practice from my office in Preston, Lancashire. Alongside the private therapy practice I work on a 1.1 basis delivering therapy to adolescents in schools across Central Lancashire and throughout the Fylde and Wyre area.
I have several years experience of working with adults and young people, in both education, health and charitable settings.
I am professionally registered as a therapist with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This is a public record 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.

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!!.
