About me

Hi, my name is Nick and I am a 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.

LGBT+ and Kink friendly (my pronouns are he/him).

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
