Nichola Hall FDSc, Reg. MBACP - Adults & Couples
What do you think and feel when you hear or read these words? The power of these words can control our lives. Do you want to take back your power?
Maybe you are looking for a private, warm and comfortable space, to talk about difficult feelings or emotions? Perhaps a place to just 'let go'? Somewhere that is peaceful and completely confidential.
I can offer you this space. Rather than the traditional 50 minutes sessions, I offer my clients full hour sessions, giving us lots of time to explore what you are experiencing.
Talking things through together, we may find new ways forward. We could gain new understanding and focus, which could offer you a new insight and path.
My counselling working involves helping people with low mood, bereavement, anxiety, depression and self-esteem issues. I have worked with people from a variety of backgrounds and beliefs. I adapt my counselling approach dependent on your needs, as everyone is unique.
I have a special interest in anxiety and depression, having had personal experience of this myself; knowing how this can affect people in different ways, more importantly, how it feels from the inside looking out.
I am aware that counselling can be daunting; trying to find someone you feel comfortable to trust. Understanding this, and the importance of the therapeutic relationship, I offer a completely free 30 minute face to face initial consultation, prior to our first therapy session. Offering you time to decide if I am the person for you. Why not give me a call?
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and practice within the Bromley area. Counselling can be offered face-to-face or via the internet, if required.

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.

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).
