Nicola Farrugia MBACP, BA (Hons), Dip. TA Psychotherapy, UKATA member (Reg)
Welcome, my name is Nicola and I offer a counselling and psychotherapy service in Seaford, East Sussex and Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
As you've taken the time to visit my profile you may be struggling in some aspect in your life. You may want to see a therapist for all sorts of different reasons such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, difficulty with relationships, feeling under pressure or just not feeling yourself.
I offer one to one counselling and psychotherapy to teenagers, young people aged 16 plus and adults. I provide a safe, empathic and non-judgemental space in which to explore what matters to you. I believe that everybody has the ability to change and by working through any issues you bring I can support you through this transition and help you achieve your goals.
I understand that the idea of coming into therapy can seem daunting, whether this is your first experience of a therapeutic relationship or not. I'll give you the space and freedom to explore any concerns you have in an empathic and non-judgemental environment.
I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client forms an essential part of the therapeutic journey. It's therefore important that you choose the right therapist for you.
When working from my practice in Seaford I offer a FREE 20 minute, in-person consultation where you can have the chance to meet me and ask any questions about how I work. Please also visit my website for further information about me and my work.
At Inner Space Counselling in Tunbridge Wells I offer a FREE 15 minute phone consultation. Please feel free to contact me for further details or to book your consultation.
I'm a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) and a Registered Member of UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis) and EATA (European Association of Transactional Analysis) and I follow their ethical codes and practices.
I'm fully insured and I receive regular supervision.
If you'd like to book your free consultation or if you have any further questions then please don't hesitate to contact me on 07954 417 473, email me or send me a message via the contact page on my website.
