My name is Nicola and I am a qualified Humanistic Existential counsellor. I work with adults over the age of 18.
I am a registered member of the BACP governing body (British association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) ensuring I work safely and ethically.
I am also trained in ASIST (Applied suicide intervention skills training).
I always feel honoured to be a part of people’s journeys in life and to be able to watch them grow.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I am a Humanistic Existential counsellor, meaning that the client is always at the centre of the work done. It allows us to look at the here and now as well as acknowledging what has brought you here and what lies ahead. My role is to support you on your individual journey and ensure it is done in a safe way. I often work creatively with clients who I feel may benefit from this approach as it can provide a deeper understanding, exploration and communication.
