About me

Hi, I'm Nicky a qualified person-centred and CBT-trained counsellor I work from the beautiful town of Newquay in Cornwall I work online, by phone, face to face and also home visits if needed.

I can offer a relaxed safe environment for you to share anything that may be troubling you and preventing you from moving forward in your life.

Sometimes life can be really tough and it can be difficult to talk to people even people that are the closest to you. Together we can explore anything that may be causing you to feel anxious or overwhelmed. In doing this we would aim to find a more manageable solution to what you are going through. 

Relationship difficulties, family problems, stress, trauma, loneliness or just struggling to fit in can make life and making decisions in life particularly tough and can often make us feel stuck, leaving us feeling like we have no direction. Talking about these experiences in a calm non-judgemental environment can help to gain focus and help us feel that we can regain control of our lives.

Past events can cause us to feel disconnected or confused, I can help by providing a supportive space to explore any emotions or feelings you may be struggling with to help make sense of these and find a more meaningful life.

We will work at your pace and can talk about anything you feel comfortable with. I have experience working with people with anxiety, and depression, people experiencing suicidal thoughts, and victims of domestic abuse as well as many day-to-day struggles that make life challenging. 

I am MBACP and work according to their guidelines and ethical framework and have monthly supervision to ensure safe practice. 

Training, qualifications & experience

  • I am fully qualified in Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
  • I am MBACP registered and have had a wide range of experience in Domestic Violence, grief, LGBTQ related issues, anger and stress management.

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.
