You can either call me or email me.
We can discuss what brings you to seek counselling/psychotherapy.
We can mutually arrange a time and date to meet in a professional setting and discuss further how counselling/psychotherapy can help you.
We can then decide together if we want to work with one another.
As far as possible each session would be arranged for the same time and day of the week (though there is of course flexibility, should you want it)

I was really struggling to deal with the things in my life I couldn’t change. It began to effect the smallest things and the relationships with those closest to me.
I had a Year of therapy and Nicola would help me unload my worries each week and work out how to react different to them.
I stopped therapy six months ago for work and I can see SUCH an improvement in my mood.
The things I can’t change in life, haven’t gone anywhere, but the way I’m able to react to them has changed totally.
It helped me feel not so alone when carrying heavy burdens and has had a lasting effect.
Thank you so much x More...

Nicola has been a huge support network during a difficult period.
She was able to help me identify my own self worth again, and I can not thank her enough.
Nicola was amazing at helping me unravel the confusion I was feeling over my relationship and helped me to identify how past experiences were impacting on my current thoughts and behaviours.
Nicola helped me to address the trauma left by these experiences and I now feel free and able to move on in my life leaving it all behind. I can't thank her enough as I didn't think I'd ever feel free of the pain. I would highly recommend using this counselling service.
Nicola is very easy to talk to and most importantly remembers every little detail she's told which is important because it means she really listens.
Excellent service! More...
