Hello, my name is Nicholas Lunt, I am a fully qualified, experienced counsellor and counselling supervisor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) working in private practice. I offer counselling supervision for both student and qualified counsellors, and one 2 one counselling.
As an Integrative counsellor, I draw on a variety of approaches to make the best use of the time and the space.
I believe working with the person in the room is the key rather than working directly with the presenting issue. I tend not to work on specialisms but do have extensive experience of working with adults and young people with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, low self-esteem bereavement and loss.
Deciding to come to counselling takes courage and I completely understand that this may be a big step for you. Difficult times, bereavement, abuse, trauma, and abandonment can lead to depression, anger outbursts, and burn out, self-harm and other issues. Sometimes we do not know what is wrong but we just know something is not right. The process of counselling can help you to find your voice, which may have been lost for a while and when heard again can make you feel stronger, more alive, at one with yourself, and more able to make choices that take you in the direction you want to be going.
I believe that change occurs because of the relationship that is created between client and therapist. Therefore, I encourage you to make a few enquiries before committing to work with anyone. I offer a free telephone or face to face consultation to enable you to communicate your needs and decide if you feel we would be a 'good fit.'
I work from my home office in Widnes.
I invite you to take the next step, call, text or email me to arrange a time to speak together.

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.
Accredited register membership
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.
