About me

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
