About me

My name is Nick Speirs and I am an experienced professional counsellor. A simple enough statement of introduction, however for a prospective client reading this, it will hold its own significance. You will have found yourself on what might have been a long journey, carrying with you any number of thoughts, feelings and questions, in the hope that you might find an answer.

I offer a safe, calm environment in a pleasant comfortable room at my home. There you will have a confidential space where together we can begin to explore the issues, which have brought you to this point in your life.

Apart from my private practice I work at a charitable organisation helping people with mental health issues. I have a broad client base encompassing adults, adolescents and children all of whom are trying to deal with a variety of issues, whether they are relational, mental health, diagnosed or not, or any of those listed below or on my website. I work directly in the community, together within secondary and primary schools.

Finding a counsellor can be really difficult, certainly given the number alone that are listed in this directory and it is such an important decision to make. I have tried here and on my website, which I hope you will visit, to convey some of who I am as a counsellor and how I work with clients. I hope that it informs you enough to help in making your decision, whether it is to take that first step and contact me or even if you feel that you still want to continue your search. Whatever your choice it is your choice, which is important.

If you do contact me, you not be making any commitment. It would be an opportunity to discuss how you feel about coming to counselling and to initially explore the reasons that have led to this point in your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications are that I am registered MBACP and I have a BA Honours Degree in Integrative Counselling. In this respect I work using an Assimilative Model of Integration, which simply means that I use different therapeutic theoretical practices in helping my clients resolve their issues.  The theories that I use most are Person Centred, which is at its very core, together with Existentialist and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I also have a Professional Diploma in Counselling together with other qualifications linked to Creative therapy, Safeguarding, Bereavement etc.

Member organisations

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
