Nick Brownjohn at Counselling Preston
No matter what you are going through, no difficulty is too small or too big to bring to counselling sessions with me. I am here to listen to you, to accept you, to help you see more clearly and to help you move forward.
Sometimes everyone needs some support and maybe you would like help dealing with a significant life event. Perhaps you are suffering with depression and are finding things too hard to face. Possibly the stress and anxiety that you are experiencing are impacting on all areas of your life. Maybe you are struggling to come to terms with accepting yourself. Perhaps a past event has left a wound that just isn't healing. Whatever it is that you would like help with, I will never tell you what to do, nor will I advise you, but I will help you to make changes in your life and help you to feel more in control.
I recognise that it can be hard choosing the right counsellor but I hope it helps to know that as an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (in turn accredited by the Professional Standards Authority), I follow a strict code of ethics and follow stringent professional standards, ensuring that I offer you the best service that I can.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Whilst social distancing rules are in place due to Covid19, I am able to offer counselling either on-line via Zoom, or by phone at £30 per 60 minute session.
Prior to starting our work together, to help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you, I am delighted to offer a free 20 minute initial consultation either by phone or on-line via Zoom.
Whilst social distancing rules are in place, counselling will be on-line via Zoom, or by telephone. When things are back to normal, the sessions take place in a dedicated counselling room at the Mandala Centre in Preston. There is free parking after 6pm, and 1 hour of free parking during the day. There are also car parks opposite the Mandala Centre and at the top of the street (£2 per hour). Additionally, the Mandala Centre is just a few minutes walk from Preston bus station.
