Nicky Sanders MBACP registered Person Centred Counsellor & Supervisor
I am a professionally qualified, registered counsellor & supervisor with over 16 years experience. I currently work as a Person Centred Counsellor within the NHS and run a small private practice from home.
I offer a genuine, calm, safe, professional space in which your therapeutic needs can be explored and worked with together.
What can I expect? Once you have decided to make contact with me by either telephone, text or email, I will get back to you via your preferred method of contact. I will get back to you within a 24 hour period.
What then? We can have an informal, confidential chat to see how best to proceed in order to meet your needs. If appropriate, we can then arrange an initial meeting together either in person or via telephone consultation.
What will happen at my first appointment with you? I will meet with you either at my home where I have a dedicated space specifically for counselling sessions to take place, or I will telephone you at the appointed time. We will have up to an hour together to explore your needs and get a sense of each other.
What next? During the session we can talk about how best to proceed and book the next session if appropriate.
How many sessions will I need? This will vary depending upon the work required and adapted accordingly to your requirements. Regular review of our work together will take place to ensure the appropriate amount of sessions are used and is effective.
Feel free to arrange an initial, no obligation meeting in which we can get a sense of each other with a view to working together & moving closer to your therapeutic aims.
