Nicki Stott - Counsellor/Psychotherapist
I am a counsellor, psychotherapist, EMDR therapist and a supervisor. I believe that people reach out for help often when they are at their most vulnerable. I offer a safe, respectful, confidential space where you will be accepted and listened to. Together difficulties, worries and problems can be explored and begin to be understood so change and improvements can begin to happen.
As well as talking, I can also offer the use of creative arts, only if you are open to this. This provides an alternative way of self expression which can be useful when words are not enough and can also offer new and fresh insights into problems.
I work with adults, adolescents and children aged 11 years and over in individual therapy.
I provide an initial assessment where we can explore whether counselling is right for you and whether it feels like we can work together. There is no obligation to proceed after this initial meeting.
I am based in a location close to Coventry City Centre, there is on road parking available and the building is also 5 minutes walk from Coventry Railway Station.
