Tracy Chery-Nicolls MBPSs, BSc (Hons), PGCE, DC Psych*
Through the journey of life, there may be times when we need space to reflect and analyse our journey. Psychological therapy can provide an environment to do that in a confidential and non- judgemental way, which can sometimes be hard to do with friends and family.
The therapeutic space is where you can share and explore what is important to you and re-evaluate experiences, feelings and thoughts that making life a bit challenging. As an integrative practitioner with humanistic values, I focus on working with the client holistically and according to their needs rather than a particular overarching theory.
Being a Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist in training, I have worked with a range of clients within the NHS primary care, psychiatric and charity sector, and with clients with an array of presenting symptoms and experiences, such as drugs misuse, personality disorder, child abuse, depression and anxiety.
If you feel as though psychological therapy may be for you at this moment in time, please do call or email me. We can have an initial chat and arrange an assessment appointment where you can decide if therapy is right for you.
If I am unable to answer your call, leave a message and I will return your call within 24 hours.
I offer low cost therapeutic services on a short term and long term basis.

Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Early childhood trauma
Child/ parent conflict
The financial commitment of therapy can hinder people from attending. With this in mind I offer two fee types, illustrated below, however I am happy to negotiate a fee according to personal circumstance to prevent the financial aspect becoming a barrier to accessing therapy.
£20 (for students and unemployed/ low wage).
I have a great interest in how early childhood experiences impact our lives.
My Doctoral research is on the impact of children being witnesses of domestic violence.
