Hi, I'm Nicholas, I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist.
I have a particular interest in the uniqueness of each life path - we could be looking at the choices that have been made and decisions that were out of your control. How you would like to be and why you make the decisions that you do.
I believe in creating an equal team to approach whatever it is that you may choose to bring to a session. I work with the individual person, rarely a title or illness, and I am proud of being able to provide a bespoke and unique therapeutic experience tailored to the needs of the client.
I offer a 90 minute session option for those that want to stay at 'depth' for longer.
Specialist areas of expertise:
- Low self-esteem
If you would like to find out more, please get in touch by phone or email. The value gained from a therapy session comes from being heard, being understood, finding yourself and finding your voice. Think of my role as a guide on the journey towards understanding yourself and reaching your potential.

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
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£65 for 60 minutes (£20 concession for students)
£95 for 90 Minutes (£20 concession for students)
COVID 19 Price - 50 Minutes £55
Being able to offer 90 minute sessions has been very effective in allowing some clients the space and time needed to get to, and stay at, the depth they wanted to find in session.
I have found efficacy in working work with clients that have lost life orientation.
