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. Counselling support may be sought to help process what has happened from past or present events. Sometimes we need to find meaning, gain insight and discover new ways in which to live a more fulfilling authentic life. When unexpected life events happen they may leave us saddened, traumatised, confused and left questioning why, what does this mean or which pathway do i now take? We may experience; anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma and relationship difficulties. Or maybe you are at a point in your life where you wish to journey into personal growth and discover a deeper understanding of yourself or the difficulties you are experiencing. Whatever your reasons are for seeking counselling, you can be assured that i will work with you in a way that is non-judgemental, deeply empathic, caring, being genuinely interested in you and in your healing journey. Working from a strengths based and client centred approach to identify and therapeutically meet clients individual needs.
I am a fully qualified university trained Counsellor with a Bachelor of Counselling, 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, working through a trauma informed lens building on clients strengths towards wellbeing and recovery.
