Dr Nickee Stopler
We all face challenges at some point in our lives which we struggle to overcome on our own.
As an experienced Chartered Counselling Psychologist, I offer psychotherapy as a tool for self-development and for those who are seeking to understand and overcome a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties in a safe and supportive space.
I work individually with adults age 17+, offering both short-term assessment and treatment as well as longer-term work for more complex concerns and on-going support.
I am trained in a range of therapeutic methods and have specialised in Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) & Mindfulness. I am passionate about working creatively to support each individual’s well-being and I offer an integrative therapy based on your needs, my clinical experience and current research evidence.
Clients say I have a warm, empathic and interactive style and a welcome sense of humour amidst the intensity of therapeutic work. I work hard to build a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship, which I believe can be the foundation for on-going and life enhancing change.
I have worked and studied in the self-development and alternative health fields for over 20 years. This experience enables me to think broadly and holistically about my clients’ difficulties and if directed by the client, can be integrated into our work together.
I am registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and chartered by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have been in clinical practice since 2006.
Training, qualifications & experience
Practitioner Doctorate in Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Psychology (DPsych) - University of Surrey
Training and Experience:
I am committed to keeping up to date in my practice and have received further training in areas such as Mindfulness and CBT for specific disorders.
Within the NHS, I have worked both with individuals with mild to moderate distress and current life stresses and in specialist settings for people with more complex difficulties. I specialised in helping people struggling with painful consequences of early trauma, abuse or neglect and those who feel their problems have been a repetitive pattern throughout their lives. I helped set up and run the first Dialectical Behaviour Therapy programme for adult services in the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust and undertook additional training in both group and individual Schema Therapy.
My experiences working at both ends of the mental health spectrum means that I can offer a depth of understanding alongside the structure of short-term work and a containment and practicality to the exploration of longer-term work.
