Humanistic counsellor

About me

I'm Nicola and I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor, with over 18 years experience working in a supportive capacity in mental health, bereavement, homelessness and domestic abuse.

I have a strong interest in helping people to explore their spirituality.   This can help people to experience themselves as a whole being, and learn to better understand some of the issues which they are going through. I also reach out to people who struggle with low self worth and anxiety.   

I work with people from 18 years of age from my home near Nottingham city centre.  My base is accessible via tram, bus, or train and there is free roadside parking available.

Where will the session take place?

I offer sessions via Whatsapp video calls, telephone or face to face sessions in a safe, confidential and comfortable room in my home.

I also offer walk and talk therapy if you prefer to be outdoors in the fresh air and open space whilst exploring your thoughts and feelings. This does not need to involve a high level of fitness! We can sit on a park bench, or walk at your own pace.

Long and short term counselling

I work on both a longer term and short term basis in a person-centred way to best suit your needs. I can help you to find your own answers by guiding and supporting you safely through your experiences, thoughts and feelings at your pace.

What can I expect from my first session?

Your first session will last 30 minutes and is free of charge.  We can talk about what you may want from the sessions, and to see if this is the right thing for you.

If you have any questions or you would like to book a session, then please get in touch. You can call me on  07801 268211 or click here to email me.
