Nicola Power MBACP (Accred)
I work with individuals who are suffering from anxiety or depression, or are experiencing distress due to relationship or work problems or as a result of a trauma or loss.
With over twenty years experience of working with addiction, I can support people to understand their relationship to their substance and/or addictive behaviour and to let go of what no longer serves them.
I also see couples who are experiencing problems related to conflict, infidelity, intimacy or communication problems, or who are just at a stage in their relationship where they would find it useful to have a safe space to explore some issues together.
I offer an empathetic and compassionate approach and work together with clients to support the development of self-awareness and insights into their difficulties.
Please contact me if you have any questions about how I work.
