Nicky Bond BA 'Hons' Counselling, Registered MBACP (Accred).
Are you feeling anxious or low in mood? Would it help to explore your thoughts and feelings away from family and friends? Could there be a better way to manage your current difficulties ?
Counselling can be helpful when we feel we have lost our way, perhaps through illness, bereavement, relational issues, job loss, addiction or life events.There are many reasons why we struggle at times, sometimes aspects of our early life impact the present ........
I am an experienced qualified counsellor working in a primary care setting as well as a group facilitator within the NHS. I am a registered accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I offer confidential, professional counselling in a safe and relaxed setting in Chichester.
My approach is person centred which means I place you at the heart of our work together and believe we are all individual and unique in our own way. I believe that our relationship is key to the work we do. There is no 'one size fits all' and I am able to tailor my approach to meet your needs.
The power and effectiveness of counselling comes from building an open honest relationship based on trust and confidentiality. In our sessions, we'll talk about the problems you feel are troubling you; this can help you see your life from a different perspective, and lead to you being able to decide on different ways of living your life in the future. My approach can be useful in both short term or long term settings
We will work to help you explore and understand your world and the problems you're facing. We can work at your pace, using a variety of different methods which might include: creative work such as drawing or painting - which can help people explore their difficult or painful feelings in a safe way; or cognitive behavioural techniques - which can be useful in identifying unhelpful thoughts and subsequent behaviour.
