Nicola Wareham MBACP
Thank you for looking at my profile. I appreciate how difficult it must be to choose a counsellor from on-line profiles so will try to give you a flavour of what I am like as a person and counsellor. I would also be very happy to talk to you on the phone if you feel this would be helpful for you in making a choice.
I am a warm, caring, reflective and compassionate person and feel these qualities are reflected in my counselling sessions. I try to provide a welcoming, nurturing and safe environment to help you feel as comfortable as possible so that you can start to talk through what is troubling you. There are times in all our lives when it is difficult to cope for all sorts of reasons, such as the effects of past experiences, relationship difficulties, feeling generally low and lacking in motivation, stress, anxiety, problems at work or loss and bereavement. All these things, and a great many more, can leave us feeling alone, worried, sad and lost which can make everyday life a struggle.
I will do my best to support you in considering and exploring your situation to develop your own understanding of what is happening in your life and help you find your own ways of managing or changing things. I have a flexible approach and can work short, medium or long term depending on your situation and individual needs and concerns.
I have several years’ experience in the NHS and for a charitable and private organisation, as well as some experience in mediation. Although I have worked with a wide variety of clients I appreciate that everyone experiences similar issues and concerns quite differently.
You will be offered an assessment session which will give you the chance to talk about your hopes and expectations from counselling and to ask any questions. Following this, if you feel counselling would be helpful, we would arrange a regular 50 minute weekly session.
My fees are £30 per session but concessions (for example for students or those on benefits) are available.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions at all as I would be very happy to hear from you.
