Nigel Magowan - BACP & UKCP Registered Psychotherapist/Counsellor and Supervisor
I am an experienced and qualified therapist and have been in full-time private practice in Manchester since 2002. I am registered with both the BACP and UKCP, and am trained to offer Integrative Psychotherapy / Counselling, CBT, EMDR, Trauma Informed Therapy, Life Coaching, NLP, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and Ecotherapy (Outdoor Nature-based therapy). I am also a qualified clinical supervisor. All our work together is carried out in a respectful, constructive, supportive and non-judgemental environment.
I use a flexible integrative approach and offer both longer-term psychotherapy and counselling, as well as shorter-term therapies such as brief psychotherapy, CBT, EMDR, clinical hypnotherapy, NLP and life coaching.
I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including anxiety, panic disorder, PTSD, trauma, childhood trauma, bereavement, depression, stress, addictions, family issues, separation, divorce, abuse, anger management, generalised anxiety, OCD, public speaking, low self-confidence and low self-esteem, insomnia and sleep disorders, relationships issues, eating disorders, fears and phobias, shame, IBS, pain management, and personal development.
You may have a specific problem you want to work on, or you may have chronic or life-long issues and are unsure of what exactly you need. Do please get in touch to discuss your requirements. My training and experience have given me the flexibility and knowledge to help you work through many different psychological issues.
I am also available for online psychotherapy / counselling sessions via Skype. This is useful if you are too far away to travel to work with me face-to-face, or if you have a condition that makes travelling difficult.
Ecotherapy / Outdoor Psychotherapy & Counselling
As well as indoor therapy, I also offer outdoor nature-based therapy and coaching in the form of one-to-one sessions, small groups, workshops and retreats, for individuals, organisations and corporate groups.
(My nature-based personal development incorporates ideas from a wide variety of subjects including Ecotherapy, Wilderness Therapy, Psychotherapy, NLP, Coaching, Counselling, Mindfulness, Meditation, Aikido, Bushcraft, Nature Awareness). For further information visit: http://www.ecotherapy.eu/
