About me


Hello and welcome, I am Nichola a BACP registered psychotherapist/counsellor. I am a friendly and approachable person. I am passionate about helping you find the freedom to overcome any problems you may be having. I offer psychotherapy in a confidential environment allowing you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

Sometimes life can become challenging and you may be feeling 'stuck' in  patterns of behaviour that are not helping you. In working with me you can have an open and honest conversation about any issues that are causing you distress, stress and unhappiness.  The aim of therapy is to improve your quality of life and have a better relationship with yourself and others.

It is my belief that we do not have to live lives that are limited by depressed, anxious, defeated, self limiting or ashamed beliefs. I provide a safe space to make the changes you desire. I feel confident that working within a therapeutic relationship changes lives.

Maybe your life does feel 'good enough' but you want to develop more insight into your relationships, or improve your communication skills. Have you ever tried to deal with things on your own and felt like it is not enough? You may have something really specific you want to discuss, it may be something that happened in your past, or worries about your future.

As an integrative therapist I am able to use different tools which enables me to tailor my approach to suit your needs. I believe when your not in a good place mentally, everything in life can feel overwhelming.  

I guess if your reading this, the time has come to seek help.  Psychotherapy can really help you and prevent you from feeling alone.  We can work together to where life feels more enjoyable again. I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
