Nicholas Ferguson Dip.Couns (MBACP Reg.)
07427 608 747
I hold professional qualifications in Person-Centred counselling and Personal Performance coaching. I will help you to make sense of the thoughts and emotions causing you anxiety, address any relationship issues that you want to resolve, and work towards reaching your personal or professional goals.
As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), I adhere to their code of ethics, which includes a commitment to my ongoing continuous professional development, and the input and support of a trained counselling supervisor.
Offering you a safe and confidential space
I believe that the most supportive counselling relationship is one where you feel able to explore your emotions and thoughts in a confidential space, where you are accepted for who you are, and where you feel free from judgement or criticism.
My own experience has been one where having the support of others (including a counsellor) has helped me to get through some of the difficulties and challenges I have faced. This support has helped me to become more self-aware and to work through my own periods of difficulty.
I am committed to empowering others to reach their potential by working with them to understand their own needs, develop a stronger sense of themselves, and find ways to work through the difficulties that have become areas of discomfort or pain.
Working at your pace and to your agenda
I believe that it is important to work at your pace in a way that will help you to work out how to best address the challenges you are facing. I also believe that you will need encouraging, motivating and appropriate challenge, to help you make the progress you want to see.
Working with me
I offer 50 minute sessions from an office just a 10 minute walk from the town centre in Gloucester. I can also work with you via Skype or telephone. Depending on your needs, I can provide both short-term and open-ended counselling.
