About me

"The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change."Carl Rogers

Are you facing difficulties or considering a change in your life? Taking the first step to decide that you will not stay where you are is the most important. Committing to counselling won't be easy but the long term rewards will be worth the effort. 

Hello I'm Nicola, a qualified counsellor. My journey into this vocation started when I sought counselling due to a close bereavement I suffered. Seeing the benefits of counselling for myself and the growth I went through, made me want to retrain from a teacher to a counsellor.

Clients benefit from being in a safe, gentle and warm space to discuss your overall goal of therapy and also set an achievable goal per 6 session blocks, (which you can pay per block). We will explore the difficulties you may be facing around your family, relationship, work stress, identity, bereavement, anxiety, depression or self esteem.

Past clients have seen the benefits of practical tools and being able to fully explore and develop as people through, seeing a new perspective and having a determination and commitment to therapy. 

Together we will walk through your experiences at your own pace. Exploring the past, present, and future, identifying patterns of behaviour, thoughts, and feelings. Using authenticity and transparency, we will discuss a new way forward that will serve you a greater purpose.  Past clients are thankful that I support them to process their emotions and improve upon their self worth and consequently their self esteem. 

Remote and Face to Face Counselling

I offer face to face Covid secure counselling in East or North London and online counselling through video calls or telephone counselling.

How to start

Training, qualifications & experience

My experience

I have counselled clients from a range of ethnic personal and social backgrounds in private practice, an NHS setting and community charities. Clients who have faced anxiety, social anxiety, depression, abuse, caring responsibilities, infertility difficulties, work stress, relationship issues and family difficulties, to name a few, for over 7 years. Supporting them to build up their self worth and empowering them to move forward in their life.

My Training in Integrative counselling

I trained in integrative counselling specifically so that I can have the freedom to choose the techniques and models that are best suited to the clients’ requirements. These include psychodynamic, solution based, CBT, person centred, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis. Please see my website for more information.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.
