My name is Nikki I am a counsellor and psychotherapist, i am passionate about supporting people that are experiencing difficulties across varying issues that impact on their joy of life and functioning. I am a fully qualified University-trained Counsellor and a Certified Expressive Therapist. I also offer Animal Assisted Therapy / Animal Assisted Psychotherapy with over 200 hours of training in this field.
I have attended numerous workshops and training events over many years and continue to do so along with having regular clinical supervision. I work in an integrative way utilising my training, working knowledge and experience with complex issues, keeping up to date with current best practice, while working through a trauma informed lens, building on client’s identified strengths towards wellbeing and recovery.
I work with all ages across the life span, with children, adolescents and adults, with an eclectic approach that is tailored to suit the age group and the presenting issues.
Counselling support can help process what has happened from past experiences or from present troubling events, to find meaning, gain insight or discover new ways in which to live a more fulfilling authentic life. When unexpected life events happen, this may leave us saddened, traumatised, confused and left questioning why, what does this mean or which pathway do i take now? We may experience; anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma or relationship difficulties.
Maybe you are at a point in your life where you wish to journey into personal growth and discover a deeper understanding of yourself. Whatever your reasons are for seeking counselling, you can be assured that i will work with you (or your family member) in a way that is non-judgemental, deeply empathic, caring, being genuinely interested in you and in your healing journey.
If you would like to enquire more about what i offer as a counsellor then please continue to look through my website or contact me to discuss further.
Occasionally, i offer Expressive Therapy group workshops for self-discovery.
