Nicki Miller - Miller & Barnes Counselling Practice. BA (Hons) Dip Couns. MBACP
As a humanistic-integrative counsellor, I take the view that there is no singe approach that can treat every client, in all situations. I therefore offer an approach to counselling that combines different elements of several specific therapies so as to enable me to provide the appropriate interventions for each individual. I believe each person is an 'unique whole' and counselling techniques are best tailored to fit the unique individuals needs and personal circumstances.
It is of primary importance to me that I offer you a highly confidential service based on you as an individual in your distinctive circumstances. With kindness I will work with you on your internal thoughts and feelings and your actions in the world. In this way we will tackle your total life situation in order to free you of the problems which you bring.
Training, qualifications & experience
Although my primary approach is existential-humanistic I augment this base with CBT, Solution-Focused, Narrative and Systemic approaches that I have studies at degree level. My training is listed below.
BA (Hons) Counselling solutions Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling Certificate in Counselling Studies Certificate in Counselling Skills Safeguarding Awareness Certificate
I am particularly interested in working with families and have counselled both adults and children for a variety of issues. The most common issues i have encountered are bereavement, anxiety, depression, bullying, sexual assault, low self-esteem, self-harm and problems associated with trust and anger. In my work at 'The Blue Door' I have counselled male and female victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
