About me

Hello and welcome,

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 and Purley in Surrey CR5

Balham.and Tooting 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.

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).
