Hello, I'm Nicola. I am a fully qualified BACP registered Counsellor and have been a health care professional for over 20 years. You will find my approach warm, friendly and down to earth, making it easier for you to experience emotional safety, kindness towards yourself and to explore your concerns in a helpful and constructive way. I offer both traditional counselling & psychotherapy and specialist support for those wishing to recover from distressing life events.
Helping you to find your way forwards
Life can be really painful at times, it can stress you out, it can get you down. You may or may not refer to what happened to you as trauma, but you know it's had a lasting impact on you and that you're struggling to recover. Perhaps it's resulting in overwhelming feelings such as anxiety, stress or panic. It could be making you feel like you're treading water and unsure how to find solid ground. Maybe memories of the painful events are being triggered in your daily life and you desperately want to be free of them and move forwards with your life.
I specialise in supporting people to safely process and recover from distressing life events. I am an experienced EFT practitioner (a specialist in trauma therapy and phobias) and a specialist breathing physiotherapist. (Trauma impacts the way we breathe. It can result in generalised anxiety and panic attacks. ‘Treating’ the breathing can help with the anxiety.)
Some of the benefits reported by my clients include reduced anxiety, the ability to stop panic attacks, freedom from old emotional triggers, increased calm and confidence, improved relationships with their spouse, partner or family, improved confidence and satisfaction at work.
.My aim is to support you so that you can find relief, move forwards towards the life that you want and access increasing levels of wellbeing.

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.

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).
