Nicola Woods Dip.Couns, MBACP (Accred)
Hello, my name is Nicola and I am an experienced Counsellor, registered and accredited with the BACP. I have eight years of experience working for a local Mental Health Charity and have also experience of working as a Counsellor at Warwick University.
Deciding to seek Counselling can take real courage. It may be that you have had a traumatic life event or you may be feeling low, depressed, anxious or feel that something just "isn't right". I can provide a safe and confidential space for you to explore your feelings and I pride myself on being a non-judgmental and professional counsellor.
I am passionate about the benefits that therapy can bring to your overall well-being and I offer Counselling for a wide range of issues. I have a particular interest in working with Trauma and am a Trauma informed Therapist. I also have qualifications in EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) and where appropriate, I would suggest this kind of therapy to help to process traumatic events. EMDR Therapy can bring about therapeutic recovery, where traditional therapy hasn't been successful.
My private practice is based in Burton Latimer, with accessible parking and close links to the A14. I have a private and discreet therapy room that overlooks beautiful countryside. During the Coronavirus Pandemic, I can also offer remote sessions via Zoom.
I can offer short or longer term Counselling depending upon your needs. I have availability on Thursdays and Fridays between 9am - 5pm.

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.
