Nicki Clein BA (Hons), PGDip, FPC, BPC - Counselling and Psychotherapy
Welcome. I am a professionally qualified counsellor and psychotherapist offering a safe, warm and confidential space for you to talk openly and freely about any issues which may be causing distress or concern in your life. Whether it's anxiety, depression, relationships or family issues, affairs and betrayals, low self-esteem or any other issue, acknowledging that you may need to discuss difficulties can be a very daunting task, and taking the first step to contacting someone is a brave step on a journey that can ultimately provide much relief and be very rewarding.
I work together with you to help you find ways in which to navigate and manage those issues, as well as exploring how they may have arisen over time. I work from a psychodynamic perspective, based on the principle that difficulties in the present may be related to a pattern of behaviour established in our earlier lives. Through identifying those patterns, we can better understand how things came to be as they are and begin to open up the potential for change. This can provide great relief from distress and anxiety as well as enabling you to lead a more manageable and satisfying life.
I see individual adolescents and adults on a short-term basis (6-8 sessions), focussing on a specific goal or transition in life, and on an open-ended basis, which allows a more in depth exploration into deep-rooted issues. Please do email or call me to set up an initial consultation and we can then discuss the best way to proceed.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my professional training as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist at WPF Therapy, one of the UK's leading and most respected training institutions, with a reputation for both clinical and academic excellence.
I am a member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC) which is the graduate body for therapists who have qualified at WPF Therapy. I am also a registered accredited member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). As such, I adhere to the strict ethical and professional codes of both these bodies, and fulfil their requirements for ongoing supervision and continued professional development.
