Nigel Magowan - BACP and UKCP Registered Psychotherapist & Counsellor
22 Newport Road
0161 881 4333
I am an experienced and qualified therapist and have been in full-time private practice in South Manchester since 2002. I am registered with both the BACP and UKCP, and am trained to offer Integrative Psychotherapy / Counselling, CBT, Life Coaching, NLP, Clinical Hypnotherapy, EMDR ,and Ecotherapy (Outdoor Nature-based therapy). All treatment is carried out in a respectful, constructive, supportive and non-judgemental environment.
I use a flexible integrative approach, and offer both longer term psychotherapy and counselling, as well as shorter term therapies such as brief psychotherapy, clinical hypnotherapy, NLP and life coaching.
I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including anxiety, panic disorder, depression, stress management, addictions, family issues, separation, divorce, bereavement, abuse, anger management, trauma, generalised anxiety, OCD, PTSD, public speaking, low self-confidence and low self-esteem, insomnia and sleep disorders, relationships issues, eating disorders, bulimia, anorexia, fears and phobias, shame, IBS, pain control, and personal development.
You may have a specific issue you want to work on, or you may have chronic or life-long issues and are unsure of what exactly you need. So do please get in touch to discuss your requirements. My training and experience has given me the flexibility and knowledge to help you work through many different psychological issues.
I am also available for online psychotherapy / counselling sessions via Skype. This is useful if you are too far away to travel to work with me face-to-face, or if you have issues that make travelling difficult.
Ecotherapy / Outdoor Psychotherapy & Counselling
As well as indoor therapy, I also offers outdoor nature-based therapy and coaching in the form of one-to-one sessions, small groups, workshops and retreats, for individuals, organisations and corporate groups.
(My nature-based personal development incorporates ideas from a wide variety of subjects including Ecotherapy, Wilderness Therapy, Psychotherapy, NLP, Coaching, Counselling, Mindfulness, Meditation, Aikido, Bushcraft, Nature Awareness). For further information visit: http://www.ecotherapy.eu/
