Nick Carter MA Psychotherapy, UKCP, MBACP
Welcome to my page. Are you experiencing emotional difficulties at the moment - sadness, anxiety, fear, for example - that does not seem to be going away? This can be a lonely place to be, when the help you usually go to does not seem to be enough this time. I have experience in working with people with these difficulties, knowing how important it is to offer a safe and non-judgemental atmosphere for you to work through them.
Counselling and psychotherapy (they are almost the same thing!) is a unique opportunity for people to stop and think about things that are troubling them. Troubles are serious matters and I know how important they are to you. You can take time to think things through to a place where you see things differently.
A biographical note: I have considerable experience in working with clients and the issues they present. I am member of UKCP (a psychotherapists' professional body, with its code of ethics). I trained at the Sherwood Institute, Nottingham, and work as a supervisor as well as therapist. I charge £45 per session.

What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?
Counselling/psychotherapy (the words mean much the same) is an opportunity to talk with someone openly in a way that helps you to see difficulties in a new way. My aims are to help you to explore your feelings and thoughts, so that you can understand your situation differently and to support you towards feeling differently about things. This can lead to new ways of behaving that brings greater satisfaction in life. Coming to counselling and psychotherapy can be daunting to start with, but that hurdle is soon overcome. My role in this journey is to be respectful and sensitive, and to be alongside you in your exploration. Your success in this is important to me.
