MBACP (Accred) - Counsellor, Supervisor & Trauma Focused CBT

About me

Hi, I'm Nikki.

Finding a counsellor or supervisor who is right for you can feel daunting and it is important that you feel comfortable with whom you choose.

I am an experienced accredited counsellor and counselling supervisor offering a safe, supportive and confidential space either online or over the telephone.

I have worked with clients with many issues either for short term or long term therapy and I have a particular interest in supporting those who have experienced trauma and abuse, (recent or historical) including birth trauma.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in gestalt counselling
  • Diploma in counselling supervision
  • Level 5 certificate in counselling young people
  • Trauma focused CBT
  • School counsellor training
  • Midwifery BSC hons degree

Personal development is important to me and I regularly attend training events.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
