About me

Hello and thank you for viewing my page. My name is Nick and I work as an Integrative Counsellor. This means I draw on different approaches to suit your situation and requirement.

I run a service called You First Therapeutic Services (YFTS) and I started this to help individuals seeking support for their mental health.

Are you looking for someone who will listen to you with empathy and without judgement? As someone who has sought support in the past, I understand how difficult it can be to reach out and make contact with someone you do not know.  

My approach to helping you is to work along side you and what you are experiencing. My focus is on you and supporting you in a way that enables you to move out of discomfort, and move forward from stuckness and other thoughts/feelings caused by your present or past. 

Session lengths are for one (1) hour. We have initial contact via email or over the phone, and if we both wish to go ahead I will book in our first session.

If you would like to know more about how I work and how I can support you then please feel free to get in touch.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
