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. 

I have several years experience of working with adults and young people, in both education, health and charitable settings. 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 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.

What I offer 

FREE consultation which will last for 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.

Areas of experience

Anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, marital discord, separation & divorce, psychological, family issues, affairs and betrayals, sexual and emotional abuse, post traumatic stress, (PTSD) , bereavement & loss, personality disorder, seasonal affective disorder. School or workplace bullying, substance misuse/abuse, body image issues, oppositional behaviours school  difficulties, self harm & cutting, social skills deficits. Abortion, miscarriage, death of a child, low self-esteem and disability, professional/career related issues.

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!!.
