Hello, I am Niki, I have a warm, caring, genuine and honest personality. I am people person, who has a passion for helping others improve their current situation to have a more fulfilled and meaningful life. I believe counselling needs to be a down to earth experience, I believe in an equal relationship between client and counsellor. I will not judge, place my opinions or beliefs on you, but walk beside you in your journey in therapy. I offer a professional service and am flexible in my way of working, adapting the work to meet your needs.
I am a person-centred counsellor which means the therapy is led by you. The relationship we build is important to make you feel safe, listened to and able to explore what is troubling you so you can identify changes that can improve your situation. I am interested in Abuse and Trauma and carry out pre-trial work, as well as many others issues.
My practice is based in Tickton, just outside Beverley. I do face - face, telephone and online therapy as I appreciate life can be busy. I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation to see if we can work together. I am a member of the BACP and work within their Ethical Framework.

I have worked at a charity for the past 3 years for clients who have been affected by childhood trauma and abuse. This can include areas such as loss, being "stuck" in the current situation and not knowing how to move on. Domestic and sexual abuse can lead to low self esteem/ confidence/ self harm /dissociation/ PTSD/suicidal thoughts/ drugs and alcohol abuse amongst many other things.
I have spent my career working in a nurturing and supporting role. I am a people person who genuinely endeavours to help anyone to achieve their full potential.
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.
