Nick Scully BSc (Hons) MBACP (Accred), Fortify Counselling And Psychotherapy
I am a fully qualified, accredited, registered and insured counsellor and psychotherapist. In our time together, I provide a warm, non-judgemental and grounded presence, to enable you to feel at ease in a respectful and confidential space.
I offer a light, welcoming and comfortable room in Lutterworth town centre with affordable parking and good road links and bus routes close by.
As a humanistic and integrative therapist, I recognise your individuality in a holistic and positive sense, together with your ability to grow. I also see how acknowledging pain and difficulties from the past allows repair in the present for a more fulfilling life. For foundation, I have faith in the healing therapeutic relationship we can create together.
My aim is to be along side you, to relieve some of that pain together. With exploration, understanding and new perspectives can lead to greater awareness and functioning, both on a personal and interpersonal level.
My work with couples is based on my philosophy for individuals. I believe in an impartial approach, where you can both be seen and heard without judgement. My aim is for you to gain awareness of yourselves in relationship and to understand what is happening between you for a way forward. For equality, I will always work with you together, not individually.
I offer a free initial session, where we can meet and look at your needs. This friendly, no obligation meeting also gives us the opportunity to decide how we can work together for your best interests.

Introduction to Counselling
In 2008, I trained with a local organisation to become a volunteer within their mental health department. My role involved one to one work with service users in their home, the community and on a mental health unit.
Gaining my degree at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, Nottingham provided personal and professional development through my own extensive clinical hours, supervision and personal therapy, to ensure safe and ethical practice.
Previous work with Mind included a wide range of difficulties, with both male and female clients of a diverse age range; I also practiced for over 5 years within a local organisation, with male survivors of sexual abuse.
In line with my professional requirements, I attend regular supervision to maintain a high level of practice and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training days on a variety of subjects.
