be who you were meant to be

“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.”

Down to earth counselling for when things are difficult

I am a professional counsellor and work in an integrative way, which means I adapt the approach I am using to you.

I use a person-centred approach, helping you to explore issues openly and safely, following your needs and working at your pace.

I am a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy).

I provide a supportive, calm and safe environment, and the time and space to express and reflect on your thoughts and feelings, exploring whatever you choose. I have worked mainly with women, and have worked with a variety of issues, including anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, loss and grief.

Location and fees:

My counselling practice is based in Bishopston, just off the Gloucester Road.

I offer a free 30-minute initial consultation. Fees thereafter are £45 for a 50-minute session.

If you would like to know more please feel free to contact me.

Female, 23

Despite my past, I was immediately comfortable with Nicola. She created a safe space where I felt validated and heard/understood, whilst also being able to take my time to talk about my difficulties without any pressure. I valued every moment of our sessions.
