Nikki Roberts registered MBACP (Know Your Own Mind) counsellor
Hi welcome to my profile, You have taken the first step to look for someone to give you a helping hand, there isn't one counsellor or tablet that fits all, so if you would like to find out if we could work together, by looking at any difficulties you are going through in this chapture of your life and explore what has brought you to this place, to start to change and taking control of what you want in life.
Life can be challenging at times and when something traumatic happens, it can be overwhelming, your life has changed you don't feel yourself anymore. You just want your normal life back but there doesn't seem to be a normal anymore or even signs of getting any better, just hoping that you don't risk opening Pandora's Box, you're scared, and not sure what else you feel just strange.
Even when you confide in friends & family, and they don't understand what it is you're going through, or even know how to help you, I can help you to understand what you are going through.
Do you have suicidal thoughts? You don't have to go through this alone.
I am an experienced qualified person centred counsellor, and I use other styles of counselling into my practice, meaning I can corporate this to fit with my client's needs. I have a wealth of experience, work with a lot of unique individuals with a wide range of difficulties such as trauma, sexual, physical or emotional abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), borderline personality disorders, attachment disorder & chronic pain to name but a few.
I offer a safe, quiet space which is confidential and free from judgement, it allows you to talk and be heard, where you share and explore your thoughts and feelings in more detail. I believe you are the expert of your life (you just don't know it yet) and I'm here to help you to help find yourself again.
I offer both short and long term therapy, I rent a room in Higham Ferrers, Rushden, wellingborough & Kettering which is easily accessible from surrounding areas. I am in the process of hiring a room in Northampton. I now use my caravan in Higham Ferrers for later appointments on a Thursday & Friday evening, Please feel free to contact me and we can discuss any questions you may have about counselling in more detail.
