Nikki Catto BA. AdDip Integrated Counselling, MBACP (Accred)
I am a trained and accredited counsellor of 19 years, I offer a range of professional services. The diversity and length of experience helps me to deliver counselling therapy confidently. I hope my experience helps all my clients to feel secure that they will have a safe and positive experience, which enables them to achieve their objectives .
I use a range of techniques, but I believe it's the relationship between myself and the client that is of the greatest importance. I pride myself on having an honest and safe approach within this therapeutic relationship. In my eyes, everyone is unique and I tailor therapy to my clients individual needs .My training is very holistic, meaning I appreciate the affect the body can have on our mental health and vice versa .and I incorporate this understanding into our work .
I was inspired to become a therapist after attending counselling sessions over twenty five years ago;. 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.
