About me

Hello, my name is Niki and I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor based in Minnis Bay, Birchington. I can also provide online sessions via zoom. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work to their ethical framework, which ensures I am working safely and to a high standard.  

As a person centred counsellor I am dedicated to providing you with a safe and supportive space for personal growth and healing. I offer a range of services designed to help you overcome challenges, improve your mental well-being, and achieve a fulfilling life.

Together, we will explore your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, uncovering patterns and developing strategies for personal growth. My goal is to empower you to make meaningful choices, build resilience, and cultivate a sense of inner peace.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
