Nikki Catto BA. AdDip Integrated Counselling, MBACP Reg.
I have been a practicing therapist for sixteen years, specialising in a wide range of life issues. A large percentage of my client base comes from referrals and recommendations from previous clients which I feel reflects the effectiveness of my therapy.
As well as offering general therapy regardless of gender or age, I also have particular experience and training for young people from 11 years onwards and within the following areas:
- Domestic violence
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Sexual abuse.
- Relationship issues
- Adolescent behavioral issues
- Eating disorders
- Young people
- Self harm
I am based in Cold Blow, Narberth but can also see clients in other areas of Pembrokeshire and via Skype . Each session lasts an hour
I use a range of techniques but believe it's the relationship between my client and myself that is of the greatest importance. I pride myself on my honest and safe approach within this therapeutic relationship.
In my eyes, everyone is unique and I tailor therapy to my clients individual needs using a range of techniques and skills acquired through the post qualifying years .
My private work space is a highly discreet dedicated therapeutic space with parking. My Pembrokeshire space is away from any built up area or home.
I am happy to chat so please call or email with any questions or just to connect before booking an appointment.
I was inspired to become a therapist due to attending counselling sessions over twenty years ago and finding that issues I had struggled with all my life became clear and understandable, leading to healing within family dynamics, confidence, self esteem and anxiety management. The power of a safe, non-judgmental and professional space to explore life issues can be truly life changing and I was driven to offer this to others in return.

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.
