My Approach

Together we will explore what brings you to therapy to deepen understanding of your dilemma. Our exploration will be a collaboration to uncover new ways of thinking about and understanding your life and how you are currently living it such that possibilities for change can be revealed.

Our exploration will focus on how you experience and think about life and the world. This might lead us to focus on one or a number of aspects of life including relationships, health, work, spirituality, your interests, we might talk about the past, present or future and we might look at things from a relational, analytic or practical perspective; importantly our approach will be tailored to match your unique way of being in the world, your life experiences and your aims for therapy.

If you are coming to see me with a partners or partners, we will seek to understand the unique dynamic created by your being together. As a relationship therapist I undertake a mixture of roles including facilitator, witness, referee and mediator, our therapy ends when your relationship no longer needs any of these.

About Me

Nicholas Rose is a psychotherapist registered with the UKCP working with adults both individually and relationships; offering personal therapy both Online and In Person. Since starting in 2002 his patients have brought concerns such as anxiety, panic attacks, unhappiness, loneliness, disappointment, depression, compulsive behaviours, sex and relationship issues, bipolar and anxiety disorders, neurodiversity, dyslexia and ADHD. During his first six years of training his experience included working with severe and long term mental health concerns including psychosis and complex post traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD) with torture survivors.

Nicholas has worked with relationships, including gender, sexuality and relationship diversity (GSRD), where concerns have included infidelity, sexual concerns, fertility, parenting, violence and abuse, compulsivity, communication problems, separation, divorce, depression, mediation and loss. He also offers intensive therapy where a set of sessions is delivered in a single day, this can be at the weekend. This option is helpful for relationships in crisis and where busy lifestyles mean that organising regular weekly sessions is difficult. Nicholas is also the author of Better Together, a book about relationships based on his work as a relationship therapist.

He qualified in London following a five-year postgraduate training that included the BACP registered training path in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of East London, followed by an advanced training in Existential Psychotherapy at Regents University to achieve registration with the UKCP. Nicholas has further trainings in Psychosexual Therapy, Couples Therapy and specialist concerns of suicide, sexual abuse, PTSD, neuroscience and trauma, clinical assessments, psychiatric medications, mindfulness and focusing. Since 2009 his clinical supervisor has been the existential psychotherapist, psychologist, teacher and writer, Professor Ernesto Spinelli.

Nicholas is a Director of a practice of psychotherapists based in Chiswick, West London and divides his time between there and Cirencester. Away from private practice Nicholas is a Visiting Lecturer at Regents University in London and also works as a psychotherapist with refugees through the UK Resettlement Scheme (UKRS). He has contributed to a number of local and national publications including the Financial Times, Daily Telegraph, Metro, Chiswick Herald, Chiswick Calendar, Means Happy and made a number of appearances as a therapist on TV and radio including BBC, Times Radio, Sky News and My Naked Secret.

Prior to training as a psychotherapist he had a corporate career, spanning some fifteen years, this included experience of senior management positions with an emphasis on marketing and strategy within the retail, telecommunications, internet and not-for-profit sectors, both domestically and internationally. He has lived and worked abroad including periods spent in Italy, Switzerland and Ireland.

Nicholas says:

“You will be coming for therapy because something is wrong for you. If I am working with you as an individual then we will seek to establish a deeper understanding of your dilemma and look for ways in which you might find a resolution. If you are bringing your relationship we will be meeting to establish what the 'wrong' is for your relationship dynamic so that you can move forward.”
