Nicola Setter Individual Counsellor, Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. MBACP.
Here at One Life Therapies, I understand that it can be difficult to navigate the ups and downs that life can throw at us. To know which way to turn or how to move forwards. Sometimes it can be helpful to talk to someone unrelated who can offer a safe, non-judgemental space in which to explore your feelings and thoughts.
Taking the first step in seeking help and making changes can feel overwhelming and even frightening. You can be reassured that at One Life Therapies you will receive a warm, supportive and compassionate welcome.
My name is Nicky Setter and I am a BACP registered, qualified humanistic counsellor, based in Wokingham.
I believe passionately in the power of talking therapies, to enable people to overcome difficulties, gain greater understanding of themselves and to grow as a person. I trust in my clients ability to know what is right for them and will work with you in a collaborative way to empower you to find your own solutions and way forward.
I offer private counselling to individual adults, in an easily accessible location and at a time that is convenient to you.
I provide counselling sessions from my personalised therapy room, in Wokingham, which is warm, modern, and comfortable. It's located in the beautiful grade 2 listed building of Markham house in central Wokingham and is easily accessible by road and public transport with nearby public parking available.
Please note, that I am now also able to offer online and telephone counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
I work as a mainly person-centred counsellor. I will also use aspects of other types of counselling to offer an approach which suits your individual needs. I use a holistic approach in my work, which incorporates mind, body and soul and takes account of all parts of your life as a unique individual.
I continue to work as a volunteer in a local agency providing counselling to individuals aged 16 plus, as well as working as a school counsellor in Reading.
My background is in healthcare where I have worked as a doctor in the NHS for the last 15 years. Please note, that whilst my professional experience includes work as a qualified doctor, I do not offer medical services or medical advice of any kind to counselling clients.
