About me

Hello, I am Nikita, a qualified person-centred counsellor who has a passion for supporting individuals through challenging times. 

Are you looking for a safe and supportive space for you to share your thoughts and feelings? Do you want a client led approach to therapy, welcoming what is present with you in the moment in a non-judgemental way. Get in touch with me to see if what I have to offer works for you. 

My experience of therapeutic work is vast and includes anxiety, depression, relationship issues, stress, self esteem issues and a general feeling of being down. 

Are you needing support through fertility issues, miscarriage, birth trauma,  post natal or transitioning into the challenges of motherhood. I understand each journey is unique and can support you by providing a non-judgemental space to share and be. 

Are you a parent of a young person who is struggling? Perhaps you are the young person needing a friendly ear to listen and support you through difficult periods of your life.  When I work with children I enjoy drawing upon various skills and techniques through an interactive manner, you will often find colouring books, games and other resources in my counselling room. Together we will explore feelings and emotions, to build resilience and work towards therapeutic change. 

As a supervisor I work collaboratively and in accessible way that enables you as the counsellor to grow and develop, in a safe place. Working with me will ensure you stay grounded, maintain professional and ethical boundaries and regularly practice self-care. Together we reflect and review on clinical work to support both you as the counsellor and ultimately the clients.

I am available for telephone or online counselling (Zoom), and also face to face sessions in Shrewsbury.

I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and have a current DBS certificate. I work with adults and children, from the age of five years.

Each session is 50 minutes for adults and 45 minutes for children. The cost is  £50 per session.

Please see below for my supervision rates. 

Please feel free to reach out to me to arrange a free 15 minute call or arrange a session.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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).
