Nicola Jones MBACP
How I work
I am a qualified, BACP registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I am a humanistic, integrative practitioner. This means my relationship with you is my priority in our work. I use different techniques to focus on you and your needs. Enabling you to reach your therapeutic goals.
I work to the BACP ethics and guidelines and offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space. The space and time are yours to explore and reflect on what you chose.
In our first session together we will explore your aims in counselling and I will complete an assessment with you. This will help us to understand how best we can move forward in sessions.
