Hi, I'm Nicki, and this is my story.
Having reached my late 40's, I do wonder where the last 20 years have gone! I have a husband and two children, who are pretty much grown up now (the two children who are not the husband) and a pooch I absolutely adore.
My passion for counselling began in my mid 20's when I found myself seeking such support.
I will never forget the day my counsellor said to me (yep, most counsellors have counselling too), in between my tears and probably snot, 'have you ever considered going into this work'? I thought she was actually mad....... me......a counsellor.......never!!! after all, I was sitting in front of her right!!
Her words stuck with me, though, and throughout the following years, I trained and studied and finally left university in 2003 with a Post Graduate diploma, to my name, in Integrative Counselling Practice..... woo hoo.
Since then, I developed my private practice and have worked with many people for over 20 years, to help support and change their lives for the better.
I have been a clinical supervisor throughout this time and developed and delivered training programmes to counsellors and clients alike.
I am accredited by the British Association for counselling and psychotherapy, which is regulated by the professional standards authority. I have worked alongside many large organisations supporting their staff using brief interventions, but equally, I have worked with many people on a longer-term basis.
My love for helping people to heal from their past and present pains has always been my main passion in life
Currently I am creating a variety of different courses to share with you, to impart all of my wisdom and knowledge, together with the strategies that I have developed along the way, that have helped so many people.
If any part of you is questioning whether counselling is for you, I would say give it a go. What have you got to lose?
You never know, like me, it may just turn your life around, OR it may simply support your ongoing journey.
If you want to know a little more about how I work, then take a look at my 'What is Counselling?' page.
P.S I love walking, hence the pic.Contact me
