Nicola Jenkinson MA, Counselling and Psychotherapy

About me

Hi, I'm Nicola and I can offer you face to face sessions, even within current circumstances.

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 have a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy and a Post Graduate diploma in relational, integrative counselling and psychotherapy. I 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 and 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 is causing difficulty for themselves or within everyday life and relationships

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
