Nicky Green, BA (Hons) MBACP
Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I seek to offer a time and space for you that feels safe and confidential and to support you to share and explore whatever is happening in your life.
I hope that you will experience me as warm and unjudgmental and let me be alongside you to help make sense of thoughts and feelings that are impacting on your current wellbeing.
I have a number of years of experience working as a BACP registered counsellor. I work alongside clients with a broad range of difficulties. Some of these can originate from a painful or confusing past that continues to cast a shadow, or it could be current life circumstances that feel overwhelming. Sometimes it can be about the future and the anxiety associated with new challenges and change.
I aim to be alongside you in a way that supports you to explore thoughts and feelings, gain helpful insights and move towards greater self acceptance, awareness of choice or possibilities for change.
As an Integrative Relational Counsellor I will seek to build with you a strong, trusting relationship to support and enhance my work with you. My training enables me to integrate interventions from more than one theoretical perspective and therefore can be responsive to your needs.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
