Nicola Segrott MSc, MBACP (Accred).
The current Covid crisis has meant that many of us have been affected by loss.
Loss can affect any part of your life, from the loss of a loved one or your health and future plans to losing your job or a close relationship. We can also be affected by changes to daily normality or our sense of identity as we approach different stages of our life, such as the menopause or retirement years?
Have changes in your life left you struggling, are you finding things difficult just now? I can understand how awful it can be to lose someone you love, or struggled to love, that sadness and tears can suddenly overwhelm you. Perhaps you feel afraid that a health problem such as cancer, already battled, might return.
The impact of Loss can leave you feeling stuck and confused, aching to feel a little more in control of life. I can help you find your way through, I'm here to listen, here to help you make sense of things and here to help you begin to feel better.
If you feel unable to talk about your problems and feelings with anyone else, why not contact me today?
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been a counsellor working for some years with cancer and hospice charities which has given me significant experience of how loss can impact our lives in so many different ways.
MSc Counselling Psychology; BSc (Hons) Psychology; Certificate in Understanding Loss and Grief; Certificate in Online & Telephone Therapy; Certificate in Couples & Relationship Counselling
I have achieved BACP accreditation for my way of working as a counsellor.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Counselling can help with emotional healing from past sadness and trauma, when your emotions seem to overwhelm you. Particular times of year, anniversaries and stages of life can affect your emotions and everyday life, perhaps bringing up anxiety you thought was over.
I also help people who have a diagnosis of Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) talk about their difficulties. I understand how challenging and painful this condition can be. Being able to talk with someone who understands can be a real help.
I believe everyone deserves to be heard, to share their worries and concerns with someone who listens, wont judge or tell you what to do. Therapy can be part of your life as much as any other well-being activity and you don’t need to be experiencing difficulties now to take advantage of counselling.
From my own experience, I understand how courageous it is to choose to come to counselling and even harder to choose a counsellor but why not take that first step - contact me today!

I have daytime and evening appointments giving you greater flexibility to find the right appointment for you.
Appointments are 50 minutes duration.
I enjoy working in person and online but during the difficult times of the Covid pandemic all appointments are online with Zoom video conferencing or on telephone.
There are some real benefits of online/telephone counselling:
- You can have counselling when you live in a more remote area, if you are unwell or anxious about going out
- You can have more flexible Daytime and Evening appointments because neither of us needs to travel.
- You can speak to a counsellor outside your immediate area, giving you privacy, confidentiality and safety
- You may find it more comfortable and easier to talk online
- An initial 20-minute telephone session to talk is free
- A single individual online Zoom or on telephone session fee is £60
Payment confirms your appointment and can be made by bank transfer (BACS)
I offer counselling to people from around the UK. I have daytime and evening appointments. Please telephone, text or email. I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
