A review off my website from a satisfied client
(Thursday, February 23 17 01:28 pm GMT)
I found nicky very comfortable to work with and relaxed and was able to open up my mind and difficulties in my life what I was facing I would recommend nicky to enybody with mental health problems she's works to bring out the best in a person who's struggling and I had positive out come she is not judgmental always welcoming with a smile on her face wanting to achieve change with clients she gets to the point of your issue she makes you feel safe in the room and only specks when needed and gets to the point I've never meet a counsellor like nicky I'm not making her big headed but there was something special about nickys counselling skills but it's about the client working with her and wanting to change 50% is going to mind 50% is stepping in the room then 100% is all down to yourself when you finish
the session it works with nicky too its commitment I found. Thank you nicky please keep up the positive work. " More...

I have a genuine interest in people and am naturally empathetic and aware that people need support going though difficult times.

Friends and family are sometimes too close and it can be very helpful speaking without being told what you should and shouldn't be doing.

I like the challenge of meeting new clients and helping them through their journey. I listen with compassion and interest as people offload things and explore their feelings. It seemed a natural thing for me to pursue as I like to support people and welcome new clients.

I worked at a mental health charity for 6 years and decided it was time for me to take the step into the unknown. Mental health doesn't Judge or discriminate, and neither do I.
I work with different people from all walks of life, from the hard workers, military, to concessions for people on benefits as well as the older generation.

I enjoy my job, I am passionate and ethic to working with unique individuals who had been struggling, because life has thrown you a hand you can't work through on your own. I am honoured to be able to share your life events, you are the expert of your life you just don't know it yet.


The group is for people who have been through a trauma and suffer from PTSD and don't know how to move forwards, feeling stuck and can't move passed whatever it was that turned your world upside down.

It helps people with PTSD in the following ways
•Mental health / Wellbeing
•Buddy system
•Learn new skills
•Loose isolation
•Helps start with improve of interaction
•Social skills
•taking that first step to change

What good will it do coming to the group?
We look at what your “feelings” are that you go through on a daily basis and work through a different feeling each week.
They range from
•panic attacks
•low mood

Why should I come to your group and not just go to the doctors as they can give me medication

I'm not a doctor I can't give out medication but I can listen and I understand what it’s like to be in a position where there isn't any help around and don't know where else to go, this is another reason why I started up this group.

Takes pressure off doctors & NHS counselling waiting lists or just another form of help until you can access them.

What will I gain coming to the group?
You will learn about what is going on within yourself such as
•To help educate about PTSD,
•Ways of coping or not coping
•How the brain works the way it does after a traumatic event.
•Sleeping habits
•Drinking habits
•Eating habits
•Hyper vigilant (being on guard all the while)
•Being very jumpy
•Help others going through the same

How much?
It costs £5 for the 2 hours for the session, this goes towards room hire, work sheets, and refreshments.

How many are there in a group?
Higham Ferrers & Wellingborough = 4 maximum to a group is 6
Kettering = 3 maximum to a group is 6
If you have any other questions please ask me.
