About me

Hello, my name's Nicola, and if you're looking for a counsellor or supervisor, I may be able to help.

I work in a way which puts you, the client, and whatever's important to you, at the very centre of our work together.  I'm not there to tell you what to do, or to take decisions away from you - I offer a safe space where you can explore your world at your own pace, and make choices for yourself.  If a thought, feeling, or experience is holding onto you and is making it difficult for you to move forward, the work we do can help you to break free of these and allow you to have the future you want.

If you're looking to find a supervisor, again, I can offer you that accepting, non judgemental space to explore, reflect and to develop your practice in a safe, ethical way.  I work with supervisees who counsel clients of all ages, couples and individuals.

If you'd like to know more about how this could help you, or to book an initial session, please get in touch.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Training, qualifications & experience

Since qualifying as a counsellor, it's been my privilege to have worked with many clients aged from 6 to 72, each with their own issues and unique path to follow.

I'm Clinical Lead at CASY, a children's and young people's counselling charity and before that I worked at the Central Notts branch of Mind.

I am also a qualified supervisor, working with both trainee and qualified counsellors, and am able to offer group and individual supervision.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
