About me

Hello, I'm Nikki, if you are reading this, you have taken the first step to looking too get the help you need.

When life gets you down and you don't know what to do, due to stressful situations, you have been through a traumatic event, you feel stuck, anxiety is holding you back. You live with chronic pain, or you have been diagnosed with a condition and you need to talk it through. I can offer a safe 1:1 confidential space where we can explore your thoughts and feelings and what you are going through. I am an experienced qualified counsellor I have a wealth of experience working within a mental health charity for 9 years and in private practice for 5 years, I have worked with a wide range of mental health conditions, where you can talk, without feeling judged. I can help you work through your past events through to the here and now. Life's moving at such a fast pace and you just want to be able to think clearly. You want to feel heard not just listened to and that’s where I can be there for you.

We will work at your pace; you are the expert of your life you just don't know it yet.

I can work with you for a one-off session or for as long as you need help moving forwards in the next chapter of your life, it's all about you,

I became a counsellor after my life changing event left me feeling alone, anxious, chronic pain and unable to cope etc. So, I became the counsellor I wish was there when I needed someone to talk to.

I have a passion and a special interest working with Trauma, PTSD, anxiety, chronic pain, invisible disabilities, bulling, loss to name a few

I will listen and make sure you are heard, I will accept you for who you are.

If you look after everyone else, who looks after you?

I am offering online, phone or 1-2-1 in person for a session

Contact me and let's see how I can help you.

I also run a trauma & PTSD support group

BACP

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.

Further information

Firstly I would like to say, well done for taking the first step of looking for a counsellor.

The next step is to email, text or call me to talk about what it is you are looking for in counselling and we can take it from there. I'm not scary honest.

In the first counselling session, you will be able to see if we can work together and if I am the right counsellor that can help you work through what brought you here.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I adhere to the BACP code of ethics and principles for good practice and am a registered member.

I have 2 lots of supervision to support and maintain my high standard of counselling for all the areas I Cover.
