About me

Corona Virus Update

Dear Clients,
I would like to reassure all clients that I am continuing to offer counselling as usual to all existing and new clients during the Corona outbreak. In order to provide therapy as responsibly as possible and maximise safety I am taking practical measures including disinfecting door handles and seating in my dedicated therapy room here in Pinner. Clients are also welcome to wash their hands before or after a session. As a further precaution it might be advisable to bring you own tissues for personal use rather than those I routinely provide.

Additionally, if you have any concerns about attending in person you may like to consider having counselling via Skype or over Face-time. I regularly provide therapy to clients using a remote connection and it is a highly effective way of having counselling from the comfort and safety of your own home. Please feel free to ask me about this or any other aspects of counselling or Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I hope the above helps and look forward to seeing you for appointments as usual.

Warmest regards to all at this difficult time, Nicholas King


For a quick view of my practice please see the video link at the foot of this page. I am an experienced Counsellor and Cognitive Behaviour Therapist working in Pinner. I am an accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also an accredited member of the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP) and a registered hypnotherapy practitioner with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR).

I work with individuals and couples in the following areas:

- Couple and Relationship Counselling
- Anxiety and Depression
- Addictions and substance misuse
- Bereavement and Loss.

I have many years of experience working in management positions for large corporations and understand the kinds of issues and anxieties created in the work environment such as stress, motivation and performance difficulties.  My experience and knowledge of the work environment enables me to help both men and women struggling to cope with career-related pressures and the challenges this can present to our psychological health and well-being.

My approach to counselling
I believe it's essential that you feel comfortable and safe with the therapist you choose - meaningful change and lasting results can only be achieved by building a trusting relationship. I apply the same approach to my own therapeutic needs and I've always found this to be the most important aspect to consider when looking for a suitable therapist. It might help you if say that my own experiences prompted me to seek counselling several years ago to address personal issues and challenges which, at the time felt too difficult to manage alone. The warmth and respect I subsequently received in counselling had a hugely positive influence on the way I viewed my own issues. We often underestimate our ability to deal effectively with problems and I hope that others will benefit from the professional support I can provide during a difficult time or crisis. The commitment I make to you is to work with warmth, compassion and sensitivity - for me counselling has to be much more than techniques and formal qualifications - important though these are - but it's the understanding and connection between counsellor and client that really matters. As Irvin Yalom says: "It's the relationship that heals! It's the relationship that heals!"

I am experienced in providing CBT and counselling to clients with a wide range of issues including the following:

  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Anxiety, Depression, Panic Attacks and Agoraphobia
  • Bereavement & Loss
  • Suicide Related Bereavement
  • Gay Affirmative Therapy/Counselling
  • Gender, Transgender and Sexuality issues
  • Counselling for Men
  • Couples & Relationship Counselling
  • Drug and Alcohol Addictions
  • Anger Management
  • Confidence & Assertiveness
  • Caring for a Dependent
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Work Related Stress & Anxiety
  • Hypnotherapy for Addictions
  • Hypnotherapy for Pain Management & Control
  • Hypnotherapy - gain control of your alcohol intake
  • Hypnotherapy - become a Non-Smoker
  • Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss and Eating Disorders

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 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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with


In addition to being a Counsellor and Psychotherapist I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist and a registered Hypnotherapy Practitioner with membership of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Hypnotherapy is a completely safe and natural way to achieve positive and lasting results in a relatively short period of time. There are no negative side-effects and you remain in complete control of your actions during and after the session. Clients seek help through hypnotherapy for a range of issues such as eating disorders, phobias, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gaining confidence and feeling less anxious, reducing stress or overcoming depression. Hypnotherapy can be particularly effective for individuals seeking to become a non-smoker or relieving pain. Hypnotherapy is very pleasurable and relaxing - as one client recently said to me: "That was the most relaxed I have ever felt in my life!" I am able to offer hypnotherapy both as a separate service to counselling and also as part of a combined approach to problems that may have proved resistant to previous interventions. I would be pleased to discuss how I might help you and your specific needs.

If you are interested in knowing more about the benefits of my hypnotherapy service please see my website for further details or contact me on 020 8866 2190.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
