Nicole Brook BSc MBACP (Registered)
Would you like to speak confidentially to someone who will be objective and not judge you? I am an approachable, qualified BACP registered counsellor & psychotherapist, offering a supportive and confidential space where you can explore the issues that concern you.
My approach is humanistic, integrative. I work with your goals and objectives for counselling, at your pace. I aim to be active and present in the process, offering my thoughts, feelings or potentially a different perspective, if I feel this will help you.
Often taking the first step towards counselling is difficult, however the process of being attentively listened to, with respect and without judgment, can have a profound impact on how you are able to manage, and make sense of the difficulties that you may be experiencing, and in finding the solutions that you seek.
I have a natural, relaxed approach and aim to help you feel as comfortable as possible.
If you are uncertain whether I can help with your particular concern, please give me a call and we can discuss this, with no obligation to book an appointment.
