Nicola Charrett BA (hons) MBACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist
Welcome and thank you for visiting my profile. If you are experiencing a difficult or challenging time in your personal or work life it can help to talk to a professional counsellor. I am a professionally qualified (BA HONS), experienced counsellor and psychotherapist in Leatherhead and I provide confidential counselling, psychotherapy, CBT and relationship counselling to adults and couples.
With over 13 years of experience working with clients, I understand how daunting it can be finding the right counsellor, so to aid you in your search I offer an initial 30 minute informal consultation free of charge and without obligation. This will give us the opportunity to meet and discuss your requirements and for you to ensure that you are comfortable for us to work together.
As a counsellor I can provide you with the time and space to explore difficult feelings in an environment that is confidential and free from judgement. I may comment on what you say offering a professional perspective, but this is done with respect for your own viewpoint and with the aim of helping you deal with specific problems. It is my role to support you and help you discover new ways to overcome your difficulties.
I have extensive experience working with clients with multiple issues including generalised anxiety, relationship issues, stress, depression, bereavement, low confidence and self esteem and addiction (see more extensive list below) and work as an integrative counsellor and therapist which means that I am able to tailor my approach to suit your needs.
My practice is located in Leatherhead, within easy reach of Epsom, Cobham and Esher and there is parking available nearby.
If you would like to discuss your requirements or find out more about counselling you are very welcome to call me in confidence on 07411512482 and leave me a message or alternatively you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
