Nicole Louise Lincoln - Therapeutic Counsellor - Dip.Couns MBACP
** 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.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
