Individual and Couples Therapy
Counselling may be new to you. This may be the first time you have opened up to someone and so we will work at your pace with whatever you bring to each session.
Emotional wounds, unlike physical ones, are often hidden or ignored yet can be the ones that hold us back from living life to the full. The aim is therefore to help you understand yourself and to identify patterns of behaviour to help you improve your mental health and well-being.
I can help you explore the concerns you are facing by providing a confidential, non judgemental space where you can work through your thoughts and feelings.

Rewind Therapy for Trauma
This technique maybe for you if you have witnessed, heard about or been part of a traumatic event or you're still experiencing flashbacks, nightmares, intrusive thoughts, distressing reminders of trauma, or physical sensations that appear unintentionally.
Where there is a single trauma only 2-3 sessions are required. For multiple traumas each event can be dealt with over several sessions or can be dealt with in one session. The Rewind technique has been successful in reducing symptoms of PTSD, and differs from other talking therapies as no details are disclosed; hence the treatment is known as ' closure without disclosure'.
I offer the Rewind technique as a stand alone therapy or integrated with counselling. I have used the Rewind technique with a number of clients and they have found it extremely helpful in those sessions.
"Nicola is a wonderful therapist. She was always kind and understanding when we were speaking. I felt comfortable with her from the start which really helped when we were talking and I will use the strategies that she taught me to help navigate my life in a healthier way from this point on."
