I have practised in the counselling and psychotherapy field for 27 years. You may be experiencing work or personal life difficulties including loss and bereavement, relationship issues or problems with addiction. Talking through your difficulties will help.
I offer a sensitive and thoroughly grounded approach which is interactive. I operate along the lines normally associated with an equal opportunities employer and aim to provide a non judgemental environment where differences are valued and respected. The initial session will determine the focus and time frame, either an agreed number of sessions or open ended.
Within the confidential environment that therapy provides, you will be able
to explore any issues that you may bring which will help you to make sense of your life, relating to the current situation, past issues and hopes for the future.
You can then explore the options you have in your life and help make sense of your thoughts and feelings. It will help you to see things more clearly and so enable you to discover your true potential and help you to choose how to move your life forward in a more fulfilling way.
My private practice is home based and located close to public transport ( bus and train)

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

At the moment I am offering sessions by telephone or online/video.
I had counselling sessions with Nina for a few years when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. It took me a while to take the first step and seek help, having these sessions at Nina’s and so close to where I live really helped me to become comfortable with the counselling process.
I appreciate how Nina was able to empathise with me as some sessions were very emotional, also her ability to give me time to get myself together before continuing. I did not find it easy to talk at first but Nina soon made me feel comfortable and relaxed.
Counselling has been crucial to helping me lead the much happier life I now have with my partner and my little girl. It has guided me and taught me a lot about myself, particularly in how to deal better with difficulties and hurdles life can throw at you. I would now not hesitate to see a counsellor if I felt the need.
I cannot put into words how beneficial receiving counselling from Nina has been to me. She gave me the tools to deal with immediate issues as well as day to day life. I would not hesitate to consult her again.
I would highly recommend Nina Roberts for any counselling needed. I found her to be compassionate, insightful and inspirational. She helped me through a challenging time where I had to make decisions regarding my past and future. Her recommendations and guidance have served me well alongside the growth I have made as a result of our time together.
Thank you so much for the strong sense of self worth and boundaries that you have helped me to develop through our sessions together. I value everything I realized and learned through your counselling, enormously. It has been so beneficial not just for me, but also for my husband and son as we develop our own values and ways of living as a family.
Nina gently empowered me to make positive, lasting changes to my behaviour and my relationships. These changes enabled me to cope with a difficult period in my life, including career change and bereavement, and have enriched my quality of life. I still often reflect on our sessions as I seek to maintain healthy boundaries and nurture my own well being amidst the demands of family life.
