Nicki Richardson BACP Accred.
I use an Integrative approach to counselling for couples and individuals. I believe that the relationship between myself and my client is intrinsic to the process of therapy. Beginning therapy can be nerve wracking so I am happy to answer any questions over the phone and to answer even more in the first session when we can decide if we want to work together.
I specialise in post abortion and pregnancy loss counselling. I can also help with a wide variety of issues including generalised anxiety, bereavement, relationship problems and work related issues.
Knowing that everybody is unique I am flexible in my approach and am happy to offer a set number of sessions or for therapy to be open ended.
Face-to-face sessions will be at least weekly and will last for fifty minutes.
I also offer online counselling either through live Skype face-to-face or text or by regular email exchange. Please contact me for more details and the fees for this service.
I also offer professional supervision to counselling practitioners.
