My name is Nicola and I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. My practice is in London at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE), W2 6NE and in SE21. Alongside my private practice I also provide short term counselling to students at a London University. My previous experience has been with the charitable sectors and the NHS such as Westminster MIND, The Caravan drop-in counselling service, FreshStart Psychotherapy and The Maudsley (SLAM) NHS Trust.
My belief is that therapy offers a unique personal opportunity to explore in depth what may be troubling you. I feel that by having weekly therapy it gives you an opportunity to express your feelings in a caring, respectful and non-judgmental manner. This helps you look at and think about your situation from a different perspective.
Being an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist I use a variety of different approaches, using whatever is most helpful. Together we will explore your challenges and concerns, allowing you to find new possibilities for healing, growth and change. My approach is flexible and practical, helping you find a sense of empowerment and make positive choices in your life again. I offer a space where you are accepted for who you are, listened to without judgment and with empathy.
Psychotherapy can provide the right space and conditions to explore and enable a beneficial and lasting change in our lives. We all have our own nature, and therefore experience the world, relationships with others and ourselves through our own way of being. Our work together would therefore be guided by your own unique nature, needs and goals.
I provide both long-term and short-term, once-weekly sessions to individuals age 18+ in a safe environment.
