Nicola Jenkinson Counselling
Hi, I'm Nicola.
If you are here looking for some help and support, I understand you have made what can be that first tricky step in beginning to move forward.
I can promise you, a safe confidential space, working with someone you can trust, who will put your needs first and at the very centre of our work together.
I will work with you in a bespoke way, tailored to the person you are. Working with honesty and integrity I will build a relationship with you in which you can be honest and open, without fear of judgement.
We will have a dialogue to support you in understanding your own thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviours and there will at times be humour - being able to laugh can provide much needed relief when life is not easy.
The approaches I use are tailored to my individual clients, these can centred on, for example, thinking processes, emotional responses, key life events and early childhood experiences / traumas.
If after looking at my information and website, you think I may be the right person for you, then please call and we can have an informal chat where you can ask any questions and I will explain, in person the ways in which I can work with you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am fully trained to Post Graduate level in relational, integrative counselling and psychotherapy and have the knowledge and skills to work with people over both the short and longterm.
I have extensively supported individuals experiencing long-term physical and mental health difficulties, people who have suffered trauma and abuse (in both early and later life stages), and have worked with clients with complex mental health needs ad diagnoses. I am experienced in supporting people experiencing difficulties in family relationships, including relationship break down and degenerative partner ill health and can support clients in managing STIs.
I have extensive experience working within both the public and private sectors and have worked with adults and families in the education sector for many years. I have in-depth understanding in supporting adults experiencing stress, generalised anxiety and long term depression (both work and non - work related) and have specialist knowledge of the demands faced by the teaching profession and in supporting parents of children with additional needs.
I have a particular interest in supporting clients for whom transvestism / cross-dressing is causing difficulty for themselves or within everyday life and relationships
