Nick Williams MSc.(Psych), Dip., PTSTA, UKCP
Fully qualified, UKCP-registered psychotherapist with more than 15 years experience in private practice.
It can take a lot of energy to live with troubling thoughts, feelings or relationships. Many people find talking, in confidence, with a professional therapist helps them discover more about themselves and how they can live in a more fulfilling way.
I offer a confidential, non-judgemental space where clients can talk about whatever is on their mind. Over the years, I have worked with many people who have known what they wanted to work on and many who just had a feeling there was something to explore.
Some clients come for a few weeks, whilst others who want to understand themselves more deeply choose to continue for several years. However long our work, counselling/therapy requires commitment from both client and therapist. I often suggest an initial session (at my standard fee) where we can meet, and you can ask any questions you may have, before deciding whether we go ahead.
I first trained in Transactional Analysis (TA) at Metanoia Institute in West London, graduating with an MSc in psychotherapy from Middlesex University. These days my style integrates aspects of several different approaches because every client is unique and has their own story. I have a particular interest in the 'Relational' approach to therapy; a way of exploring patterns of relating that can lie beneath painful, repetitive experiences - but I'm always happy to discuss the way we work together.
Originally from Wales, I have lived in London for more than twenty years - working first in the arts and then with an international media company. Since training in counselling and psychotherapy I have worked with a sexual-health charity and run depression & anxiety groups in the NHS - as well as working in private practice. I also now work as a clinical supervisor of other therapists and as a member of the tutor team at Metanoia Institute in West London.
I am committed to ethical, non-discriminatory practice and welcome individuals and couples of all races, faiths and sexualities. I abide by the principles and ethics of the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy).
