About me

Hello, my name is Nikki. I understand how daunting it can be to look for a counsellor. It is possible that you are feeling anxious or depressed or struggling to manage your emotions. I am glad that you are reading my profile, my hope is that the therapeutic relationship we will build together will empower you and help you to find resources within yourself.

Finding a counsellor is a very personal decision and it is important to find someone you feel you can work with. I believe that every individual has their story within them and finding someone to listen without bias or judgement and help unravel that story and piece it back together with more understanding and clarity can be a hugely empowering experience.

I have an MA in Person Centred Counselling and am a fully qualified member of the BACP.   Person Centred Counselling is non-directive, there are no judgements made and it is confidential. We will work at your pace, giving you the time and support to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe and accepting environment.

I have worked in a GP's practice for two years with issues ranging from depression, anxiety, eating disorders and bereavement to workplace stress. I currently work in private practice and for the NHS.

I offer an initial assessment to ensure you feel comfortable with your decision to work with me.  We will get an idea of what you are hoping to gain from the counselling and how we will then work together.  Sessions are usually weekly, and either for an agreed length or open-ended, we will tailor this to best meet your needs.

I work from a discreet private practice in the centre of Chester and have a second practice in a shepherd's hut outside the village of Malpas, Cheshire.

Training, qualifications & experience

Foundation in Counselling - University of Chester,
MA in Clinical Counselling - University of Chester.
Level 4 Certificate in Counselling Children in Schools - Place2Be

I am a fully qualified person centred counsellor and a member of the BACP.

I have worked in a GP's practice for two years with issues ranging from depression, anxiety, eating disorders and bereavement to workplace stress. I currently work for the NHS counselling staff and with Place2Be as a school based counsellor. My work is firmly rooted in Attachment Theory and as a person centred counsellor I work with whatever the client brings in a non-directive, non-judgmental manner.

I regularly attend further training events to increase the breadth of my knowledge. Sessions are 50 minutes long and I work with individuals for an agreed time period or on an open ended basis depending on each client's requirements.
