Fully Qualified Integrative Counsellor

Here to Support you in your life

Finding the right counsellor can be very daunting, and making the first step can sometimes be hard to do. It is my aim to ensure you feel relaxed and confident from the first point of contact with me, and have assurance of safety and confidentiality at all times.

I work from a beautiful therapy room set within my garden, which creates a warm, safe, quiet & relaxed environment, providing you with space in which to explore your feelings and emotions with total privacy.

I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor, which means I work with many different styles and techniques dependant on your need.

I work empathetically, and ensure that sessions are client led, which enables you to work at your own pace to explore your own feelings, without feeling judged or pressurised.

I undertake regular supervision with Dean Parsons to oversee my practice and also partake in regular CPD to ensure that I stay up to date on research and theories, in order to offer the best practice to my clients.

Happiness is not something we find, it's something we create when we find inner peace and love

Frequently asked Questions

If you have any questions that are not listed, please contact me via email and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

A therapy session allows you to have the space and time to explore any issues that are causing you a block within your life. Being able to talk to a counsellor allows the opportunity to see things from a clearer perspective, working through the issues and learning techniques to change going forward..
The initial session allows an opportunity for both the counsellor and the client to get to know each other and to decide what the client requires from the sessions. This session is to establish whether it is ethical to work together, and to create a forward plan of action. Subsequent sessions will be client led, working through anything the client brings to the session, with the aim to learn new ways of coping with the difficulties faced.
Sessions are 50 minutes.
The counselling process can at times be difficult, and clients may sometimes feel worse before they begin to feel better.
Sessions are priced individually.
This is dependant on the issues brought to the session and will vary from one client to the next. An approximate time scale will be discussed at the initial consultation, but may change duration as the sessions progress.
All therapy sessions are conducted with total confidence. The only reason confidence may be broken is when the welfare of the client, child or another person is at risk. This will be fully explained at the initial consultation.

Only after recognition and acceptance can healing begin and the first steps be taken to true happiness


What people say about me

Sometimes it is good to hear about others experiences before you embark on your own counselling. My testimonials will give you my clients honest thoughts and feelings of the work we achieved together and will hopefully offer you reassurance, so please feel free to leave me a testimonial, I would very much appreciate it

I have had a good mixture of counselling and hypnotherapy sessions as I do struggle an awful lot with anxiety. I first reached out to Nicola in April as I found it really hard to deal with personal issues at the time. From the first session, I had broken down and I found it so hard to talk about the issues I was facing at the time, but Nicola is such a wonderful listener, is non judgmental and is always around whenever you need to speak to her. Throughout my time with Nicola, she has given me helpful techniques to help me cope with my panic and anxiety which have proved helpful in situations.. Thank you Nicola for all you've helped me with xxx

Nicola has been fantastic! I so wanted to write a review for this page as I am blown away by the results. I was very nervous about the idea of hypnotherapy but I can honestly say anyone thinking about giving it ago there is nothing to be nervous about at all!! Everything was explained in detail & i was given exercises to use at home which I can use everyday. I can’t recommend enough, worth every penny spent & I am so grateful for all the help I received, genuinely so caring & such an interest in helping people!! Once again thank you so much & anyone of thinking of using NJM it will be the best thing you do!!!

Nicola has been fantastic! Even before my session with her she was very helpful and easy to talk to. I saw Nicola for weight loss kenetic shift and hypnosis, what can I say?... oh my goodness! Having had issues with food and it being my comfort for most of my life I thought it would take more than a couple of hours to make a difference. I can honestly say I’ve never felt more positive, my cravings just aren’t there anymore, my whole attitude to food is different. I no longer want the things I did before, I tried a bite of cake and the feelings I used to associate with it just weren’t there and I just don’t need it any more. I will carry on this positive change now for the rest of my life, I know also that should I struggle (which I won’t) I can go back to Nicola at any point. I recommend Nicola 100% Thankyou for helping me begin the change I needed so badly.

As a single mum to two children, things can sometimes become quite overwhelming at times and having no one to share things with, my stress levels can be quite high at times. I reached out to Nicola at a time that I was struggling with pain after a shoulder operation. I wasn’t able to sleep at night and was in constant pain. I was having to be referred back to my surgeon because of it. Nicola talked to me about Kinetic Shift, something I’d never heard of before, it sounded interesting and at that point didn’t have anything to lose in giving it a go! Nicola talked through and explained about the process and then started, I was fully conscious and felt very relaxed through it all. It is the strangest feeling ever, I went in pain and with the weight of the world on me! Instantly, the stress had gone, the feeling of anxiety had gone too. I knew everything I had to do but the worry had just disappeared! I felt so much better, instantly! Over the following days, with the techniques Nicola gave me to do at home, the pain in my shoulder has subsided too, I am no longer in constant pain and I have a clearer head to sort through everything, this feeling has carried on too. I cannot recommend this technique and Nicola enough. Give it a try, it really is amazing!

I was very nervous about the idea of counselling and I really didn't know what to expect. From the very first point of contact, Nicola allowed me to make all the choices - where we met, how often and at what time. She was welcoming, calm and a fantastic listener. I thought I would be bombarded with questions, but instead, I was encouraged to talk about whatever I wanted or needed to talk about, with gentle 'steering', to help me consider things from many angles. More than anything, she listened and reassured me. She gave me the confidence to trust myself again. I would highly recommend her. Thank you Nicola, for putting me back on my feet and making me feel like myself again.
