Nicola Wyld, UKCP Registered
Hello - I am an experienced integrative psychotherapist and counsellor registered with UKCP. I work with individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period depending on your needs. Based in central St Albans I am also conveniently located for offering therapy to those in Watford and Hatfield and other parts of central Hertfordshire.
How I work
Working integratively means that I bring together different perspectives that help me respond to you holistically as a unique individual. Sometimes our thoughts, feelings and physical well-being may become out of balance and an integrative approach also enables us to look at how these different facets can be brought together in greater harmony.
I am committed to providing a safe, confidential and non judgmental space for you to talk about yourself in a way that is often not possible with family and friends. My role is not to give advice but to explore with you how you can look at things in a different way and make changes in your life. I see the purpose of therapy as enabling you to gain a new understanding of yourself so that you can enhance your life and live it more fully and resourcefully.
Together we can identify the best way of working with the issues that you bring. This may involve taking some time to explore in depth underlying patterns that have arisen from the past, how these impact on you in the present and can be changed. Or you may decide that you want to look at something specific on a short term basis in order to find a solution. In working with couples my aim is to facilitate your communication with one another in understanding the issues that you bring.
I trained originally as a solicitor and more recently as a family mediator for couples on relationship breakdown. Over the past 30 years I have worked in various capacities for children, young people and families: as a practising lawyer, a family mediator and in the charitable sector working to promote change through legal advice and advocacy, policy development and training. From my experience over the years I have gained a good understanding of the issues as well as the challenges and stresses facing those working in this field such as social workers and specialist solicitors.
