My name is Nicola and I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Taking that first step into the counselling room can sometimes feel daunting, so it is my aim to walk alongside you as we explore your lived experience together. Maybe past experiences are still influencing how you live your life today or you may have suppressed or numbed emotions through fear of being overwhelmed? These are quite normal thoughts which can be explored in counselling in a safe, confidential environment.
Following government guidelines, I have been offering online sessions during the COVID 19 pandemic, which are still available, if preferred, but have recently returned to face to face work. If you prefer to have face to face sessions, extra precautions are still being taken and should you wish to wear a mask or visor during your session then please do so, unless there is a change in government guidance, then this may become compulsory. Hand sanitiser is available before you enter the room and the room is wiped down with antibacterial wipes between clients.
We are living in uncertain times where our normal way of life has been disrupted. You may have found yourself unable to cope with feelings of anxiety, anger, fear and of being overwhelmed at how life has changed since the start of the pandemic. Please give me a call and we can discuss how we can work through these together.
Please give me a call on 07557 049039 if you require any further details
What Can I Help With?
It is my aim to help you recover from the emotional, psychological, physical, and sometimes mental pain of trauma. Recovery is a personal journey and takes time to find the right direction for you. I offer a safe, caring, confidential environment to enable you to explore and process past experiences and to help facilitate your journey to recovery.
feeling & emotions
Through the course of therapy there may be times when things feel difficult and you may cry, feel angry or upset. There may be times when there are no words and you want to take time to reflect on parts of your life. Counselling requires engagement and hard work, so learning to be kind to yourself and recognise what you need is part of your journey too.
Give yourself time.
