Thanks for for visiting my profile. My name is Nicolle and I'm a qualified therapist working from a practice in south Birmingham.
At times, life can be difficult. Sadness, anxiety, a lack of confidence, difficulty with relationships and many other issues can overwhelm us. Talking to friends and family can be enough, but talking to a supportive independent 'stranger' often seems easier. I have learnt from experience that opening up and starting to make sense of thoughts and feelings can be a difficult but very rewarding process.
In a confidential and non-judgmental setting I can offer you support exploring any issues you may struggle with. I believe we are all individuals and no two people are the same. Paying attention to your individual experience and really trying to understand this is very important to me, as we can often be left feeling we need to live up to people's expectations.
Taking the first step to seeing a therapist can be difficult so feel free to call or email me should you have any questions.
Training, qualifications & experience
My background lies in nursing so I have been supporting people for many years now. I realised what I enjoyed most, and where my strength lies, was spending time with people and hearing their stories so I started a level 2 course in counselling skills at Bournville College after which I continued onto a level 3 course at Solihull College.
These two courses confirmed I felt passionate about becoming a counsellor and I went on to complete a BSc in Humanistic Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy at the Sherwood Institute In Nottingham. This course gave me insight into how our early relationships can (often unconsciously) impact on us and our relationships in the present. I have worked with clients from a wide range of backgrounds and have several years experience working with clients who have experienced sexual violence and abuse.
