About me

Hello, my name is Nicola and I am a creative counsellor and psychotherapist. I have particular experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, bereavement, mental health diagnoses, low self-esteem, and anger using insightful knowledge for change.

It will be your choice of how you would like to work, always in a warm, confidential space with empathy and no judgment.

I have a comfortable, private room I work out of in Clitheroe and I am available for face-to-face therapy or I can work online, by telephone, or walk and talk. 

I use an integrative approach in talking therapy. I can be purely Person-centred, however, if you require a more directive approach I can work using Solution-Focused Therapy.

I can also offer purely person-centred creative mediums such as art, sound, dance, drama, and creative writing for expressing emotions. 

Creative therapies can be helpful if you find it difficult to put your thoughts and feelings into words. They may also help when addressing painful feelings, experiences, and trauma. 

I appreciate it takes courage to reach out for support, and I am open to any questions you have and will do all I can to put you at ease.

Emotions and feelings change throughout life due to experiences, sometimes, becoming too overwhelming to manage alone.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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).

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
