Nicola Allsop - Registered MBACP offering Counselling and Psychotherapy
During these challenging times with COVID-19, we are all experiencing some confusion, and at times intense feelings. Our normal ways of relaxing and coping have changed. If you would like someone to talk to I am taking on clients, I have reopened my practice for face-to-face work following government guidelines. I also offer sessions online or by phone.
Sometimes life can become challenging and this can leave us feeling overwhelmed, confused and struggling to cope, this in turn can affect how we feel and interact with others. Counselling aims to provide a safe, private space to give you the opportunity to explore and reflect on aspects of your life that are causing disorder and confusion.
I offer a non-judgemental, empathic setting where you can develop solutions to your problems and ways of being that fit and make sense to you.
Training, qualifications & experience
During my career as a counsellor I have worked for a number of organisations with clients that have presented with many different issues. I have experience in counselling both adults and teenagers, in my private practice I work with both. I offer short or long term counselling depending on your requirements and this can be discussed at the initial appointment.

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.
