Hello I'm Nicole and I am a humanistic integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, tutor and supervisor. I have been in clinical practice since 2004. In 2012 I set up Peel Psychological Consultancy, a private counselling and training service with the aim of offering individual, group and organisational psychological support and education based on up to date research and clinical developments.
I began as a person centred counsellor and later trained as an integrative humanistic psychotherapist. This allows me to draw upon many different schools of thought when working with clients. Since qualifying in 2007 I have developed an interest in trauma and believe that, relational trauma lies at the heart of most psychological distress.
I have been told that my style is warm and open. I am enquiring and at times challenging and I know when to be silent and to listen. Whilst my clinical work is underpinned by the latest research and up to date theories, I will share my own experiences and stories if appropriate. I invite a reciprocal, inclusive collaboration which has at its heart the therapeutic relationship.
I work with all types of people, with all sorts of problems both individually, in couples and in groups. I offer short-term solution focused therapy and long term relational psychotherapy.
I work extensively with organisations and employees, tackling work related stress and PTSD.
I hope this helps to give you some idea of who I am and how I work. Please feel free to call for a free 15minute consultation to discuss your needs with no obligation moving forward.
I look forward to speaking with you. Warmest wishes, Nicole

In 2012 I set up Peel Psychological Consultancy, a private counselling and psychotherapy centre in Gosforth, Newcastle. My aim was to bring together like minded professionals to create a warm, collaborative and inclusive environment from which we could offer clients what I term, 'a real world approach' to counselling and psychotherapy. The idea that anyone wishing to access counselling or psychotherapy be offered a flexible, modern, evidence based, professional service, tailor-made to suit individual, group or organisational needs.
My commitment to staying on top of up to date research, clinical applications and developments in continuing professional development (CPD) ensures that our clients receive the best care and attention from practitioners who are actively involved in the latest psychotherapeutic developments. Our CPD training and health care programmes are currently being rolled out in the NHS, local industry and businesses.
