Nicola Feast MBACP Little Green Bag counselling specialist in bereavement
If you are at a place in life that you feel you are struggling and need some extra support then that's where I can help. I offer a safe space in which we can break down the current difficulties you are having making them feel easier to deal with. Together through therapy you can find suitable solutions to help you move forward and get back on track. I specialise in bereavement and through working at the survivors Trust have a strong background of helping those affected by rape and sexual abuse.
I am a Person-centred counsellor with a range of experience covering various aspects of counselling. I have been able to effectively help individuals suffering with anxiety and panic attacks. I have also worked the following issues; negative self-talk, family issues, anxiety, depression, self-harm, loneliness, childhood trauma and its impact, and many other areas.
I specialise in bereavement and grief counselling and have worked with a range of bereaved individuals. Gaining support from friends and family can ease the pain of loss however there are occasions that this support may not feel enough. I have a deep understanding and knowledge of grief and have worked with various clients and a broad range of loss.
I offer a friendly and down to earth approach to therapy in a safe and confidential environment. I believe there is no greater privilege than facilitating the process of healing for someone.
I offer the time and space where we can talk and together, we can make sense of any current difficulties you may be experiencing. I feel that you shouldn't have to live life defined by damaging and hurtful experiences of the past. Times of struggle and crisis can often offer real opportunities for personal change and can be a catalyst for reflection and self-inquiry leading to personal growth. My goal is to assist you on the therapeutic journey to a more fulfilled and happier life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained for over three years to become a qualified Person-centred therapist.
My qualifications include:
Dip in bereavement and grief, Grief recovery method training
4 Dip in therapeutic counselling
Level 3 Cert in counselling skills
Level 2 award in counselling concepts.
I have gained 2 years of experience working for an organisation that provided support and counselling for survivors of rape and sexual abuse. The service was provided for all ages and genders also providing support for families and partners of survivors as the impact of abuse can be far reaching. This work has left me with a knowledge of trauma and the impact of trauma on the emotional and physical well being. I have furthered this knowledge with gaining insight on how to heal after trauma.
My Dip in bereavement and grief not only covers death but also loss. This loss includes end of friendships, loss through retirement, empty nest syndrome and loss of spouse through divorce.
