About me

Hi, my name is Nick and I am a queer identifying Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist.

Making the choice to seek out counselling can be a hard step in its own right, having to then find a counsellor you feel safe with when going through some of your most difficult moments can be very daunting.

My way of working is typically non-directive, offering you a confidential safe space that is non-judgemental allowing you to work through whatever is troubling you. With the person-centred approach, the counsellor is not considered to be the expert who can “fix” you but rather it is the individual that has the ability to work towards resolving their own issues when given the support of genuine acceptance and empathic understanding which comes from the working relationship between client and counsellor.

I work with adults on a wide range of issues surrounding identity, gender, sexuality, relationship diversity, (GSRD), self-worth and self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, work and workplace stress.

Your reasons for seeking counselling can be well known to you but sometimes it can be as vague as knowing something feels wrong but not knowing what or why. Talking about these feelings can help bring them into focus and enable us to work together through these difficult times.

In our first session together, we will have the opportunity to get to know one another and it will give you an idea of what working with me as a counsellor will be like and if it is right for you.

I am LGBTQIA+, kink and neurodiverse friendly and my pronouns are he/him.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

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.
