Dr Nicole Burnham
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to explore a range of personal difficulties and feelings.
Individuals may seek therapy for a number of reasons. Some may wish to have better understanding of themselves, to find more meaning in their lives, or to have a better idea of what their next steps ahead might be. Others might want support in overcoming a range of more specific difficulties such as those listed below:
- Stress and burnout
- Low self-confidence
- Depression and unhappiness
- Anxiety, panic, obsessions and phobias
- Anger and aggression
- Relationship difficulties
- Managing physical illness
- Bereavement and loss
- Autistic Spectrum Disorder (although not formal diagnosis)
I provide both short term, goal oriented therapy (between 6-12 sessions), as well as longer term, exploratory therapy. My doctoral training gave me knowledge and experience in working within a range of therapeutic models. I choose to work integratively, drawing on cognitive-behavioural, humanistic and psychodynamic approaches. I seek to understand each client’s individual needs so that I can create a flexible, personalised therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Bachelor of Science in Psychology with Neuroscience (Bsc)

Training and Experience
I have gained over 10 years experience of working within mental health settings both within and outside of the NHS. Throughout my doctoral training, which I completed at City University, I completed placements working in both adult and adolescent mental health teams and worked with a wide spectrum of psychological difficulties.
I currently work within a London based NHS mental health service, as well as in private practice.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Anger management
- Asperger's syndrome
- Carer support
- Domestic violence
- Emotional abuse
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Panic disorder

My fees are £80 per session. They can be paid by cash at the end of each session, or by bank transfer in the week following the session. Please note that there is an additional £20 administrative surcharge when paying through private insurance.
I also offer telephone and skype therapy which are charged at £60 per hour. Ideally I would prefer to have the first consultation face to face as a way of strengthening the therapeutic relationship.
