Mandy Nicholas BACP Accred
I am BACP Accredited counsellor. I have experience of working with adults, young people and couples. I am also a qualified clinical supervisor.
I recognise that there are times in life when we become unable to see ways through our difficulties. In my experience having a space to contemplate and reflect the possibilities truly enables us to make life changing choices.
I believe that counselling should be an empowering process, a place where we learn more about ourselves and the person we would like to become. Counselling helps us to learn new strategies to cope better with any future difficulties we may face.
Whatever is important to my clients is important to me. I work alongside you with whatever challenges you face and celebrate your successes.
The model that I have trained in is the Relational Approach. This combines the analytical aspect of the Psychodynamic Approach with the warmth of Person Centred therapy. I also consider other theories in my practice such as Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
My practice is located in a very quiet building with plenty of on site parking, transport links via rail and bus are very good. I am also able to see clients in Wakefield
