Nicola Fraser BA (Hons), MBACP
Sometimes we struggle with what life throws at us and it can feel confusing and overwhelming. Counselling can provide the support and space to help you explore what may be troubling you. I aim to provide a warm, confidential and non-judgmental environment where you can feel safe to share what has brought you to counselling; this can also provide the opportunity for you to express genuine feelings and to be who you really are without being criticised.
How I work
I believe that the counselling relationship is an important aspect of healing where you can be reflective, feel cared for and listened to. Together, we can work towards helping you to gain insight and awareness into yourself and your relationships, and to gain an understanding of the patterns of your life. Making links to the past and coming to terms with what may be troubling you can provide the opportunity for our natural ability for growth and development.
I offer both short-term (6 - 12 sessions) and longer term open-ended counselling depending on what you might need. I offer regular reviews; usually every 6 weeks to reassess where we are and the way forward
Training, qualifications & experience
I work in my private practice in Claygate. Alongside my private practice, I work with vulnerable young mums, supporting them through their difficulties and struggles of everyday life and I also provide counselling to Students at a London University.
I have a BA Hons degree in Integrative Relational Counselling which means that I draw on a variety of theories to support my work. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and am guided by the BACP Code of Ethics.
To ensure that I am doing the best I can to support you, I am committed to ongoing professional development, and receive regular supervision from a senior practitioner.
