be who you were meant to be

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I change.”

Carl Rogers

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 focus, 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 work mainly with women, and have worked with a variety of issues, including anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, loss and grief, among others.

Location and fees:

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

Fees are £55 per 50-minute session (£45 for students). I also offer a free 30-minute initial consultation.

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

“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.” (Female, 23)

“I always felt accepted in our sessions. I feel like I’ve returned to the real me.” (Female, 41)
