Nicola Farrow MBACP, HE Dip, BA (Hons)
Hello, My name is Nicola. I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapist and relationship counsellor. I support and work with individuals and couples who are experiencing a wide range of issues from, anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship issues, separation, divorce, low self-esteem, anger and bereavement.
I have worked in a variety of settings including the Relate institute, counselling agencies, and as part of a mental health team. I now work mainly in private practice.
My practices are situated in Coulsdon Surrey CR5 and Balham.London SW17.
I use a psychodynamic approach which recognises that current difficulties can be linked to earlier life experiences. I also work within an integrative model which includes aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), systemic and humanistic. This means I use different theoretical models as appropriate to each person's individual issues, to help them to explore and work through their difficulties.
As a therapist I aim to.provide a secure, welcoming, and confidential space to help you make sense of your thoughts and emotions from your unique perspective.
Choosing the right therapist is an important process, and I understand that taking the first steps to seek counselling can feel a daunting experience and because of this, I offer an initial 30 minute consultation for £30.00 to give you the chance to meet with me and see if you feel comfortable with me and the way in which I work.
