Nicola Menaul (Regd. MBACP)
Firstly, let me thank you for looking at my page. Having been the client myself, l know how daunting and scary it can be to make the decision to enter into counselling and open up about the things that are causing you distress. That’s why my aim is to make you feel as comfortable and supported as possible, so that you can gain the most from your time with me.
l am an integrated counsellor which enables me to be able to offer every client something that will help them move forward. You will always be treated with warmth, empathy, honesty and positive regard. There is no limit on the number of sessions you can have with me, ensuring that you have the time to make the changes you want to make.
l sincerely believe that change is possible for anyone, as long as they want it.
Training, qualifications & experience
l gained my Degree in counselling in 2012, ever since then l have worked with clients in charities that help survivors of abuse, mental health hospitals, substance misuse services and in the private sector.
Through this experience l have worked with a wide range of issues and have continuously built my skill set through experience and continued professional development. I value gaining new skills and therefore commit to doing at least 30 hours of further professional development every year.
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.
