About me

** Please be aware in these challenging times, although I am unable to offer face to face sessions as a initial option, I am still offering talking therapies via video & telephone, If in doubt please pop me a message to discuss ** (May 2021 updated)

My vision is to use the passion I have for people to assist them when they feel lost in their own life journey. My names Nicole & I represent Vibrancy Talking Therapies which I started once fully qualifying in 2017.

My background and training has included 6+ years of integrated therapeutic counselling and psychology. Within a volunteer counsellor capacity I have worked at a Kent based children's Charity using both talking and creative therapies and working with end of life struggles and bereavement at Ellenor Hospice, Kent.

I feel that my unique, youthful and compassionate approach to creative and talking therapies allows people to be themselves whilst exploring the parts of themselves and their experiences that they may not yet fully understand.

I work on a person-by-person basis as one size doesn't fit all.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications include the following;

  • Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (CPCAB) with BACP certification
  • 'Moving Your Practice Online' Course (Online Therapy Institute)
  • Online & Telephone Counselling Training 80 Hr CPD (Counselling Tutor)
  • Level 2 & 3 in Counselling Skills/Studies (CPCAB)
  • Level 1 Introduction to Psychology (Open University)
  • Certificate in Transactional Analysis (European Association for Transactional Analysis)
  • Introduction in Play Therapy (Academy of Play & Child Psychotherapy (APAC)

I also complete continued professional development (CPD) courses to keep my knowledge base current and refreshed.

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.

Accredited register membership

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
