Have you got that niggling feeling that things aren't right?

 
Nicola works by looking at the present to see where you are in life. This sometimes involves looking at the past to create an understanding of where current issues may have started. She then works with you to help equip you with the tools to help you move forward in life.

 
She is qualified to work integratively and with CBT as a therapist/counsellor. Nicola works with individuals, couples and young people. As a member of the BACP she is obliged to adhere to their ethical guidelines.
Sometimes events in our past and present can hold us back and keep us stuck in negative behavioural patterns that prevent us from leading a fulfilled life and realising our full potential. Counselling or therapy can help you accept yourself and be comfortable with who you are.

 

Nicola understands that when searching for the right therapist the choice can seem overwhelming and the different styles confusing. Counselling is not a "one size fits all" experience hence the reason she works integratively, which essentially means that she combines different strands of theory, for example, person centred, psychodynamic, humanistic, gestalt and solution based therapy to find an approach that is right for you and will suit your needs.

 

Nicola has a wealth of experience of working privately. Some key areas that she works in are:
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Eating Disorders
• Family/Relationship issues
• Bereavement
• Confidence and Self Esteem
Please feel free to contact her if there is a specific issue that you would like to discuss.

 

Relationship in trouble? Couples therapy can be invaluable for providing a safe space to work through all the issues that arise between you. In her experience many couples simply lose the ability to communicate effectively and get themselves heard. Nicola can work with you to help get you towards having a healthy relationship. She finds that sometimes just a few sessions can be really effective, but of course she offers long term work and support if it's required.

 

Nicola invites clients to come for an assessment session in which she can explore what your expectations might be, and answer any questions that you have about the process. She is adaptable and flexible and if a particular way of working isn't suiting you then she can explore other avenues.
Nicola's background is varied. She spent a long time working in catering and as a photographer working in the fashion industry. Then, after a brief spell of working in a corporate environment she then moved to the charity sector where she worked for Save the Children for 5 years in the Emergencies Team before deciding to retrain to become a therapist.

 

Nicola began her therapy training by working for Cruse which is the UK's largest Bereavement Agency. She then combined working with adults as well as young people within in a secondary school environment and an NHS setting where she set up a pilot project funded by the borough of Wandsworth.

 

She now purely concentrates on her private practice. Nicola believes that continuing professional development is crucial to improving her work, so regularly attends workshops/seminars to extend her learning.
