About Me

It is your space and I am there for you

A very warm welcome to my website, I’m Nicky, I’m a fully qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor trained by one of the leading UKCP-accredited providers in the east of England, Matrix University. I have a Bsc (Hons) in Psychotherapeutic counselling. I offer counselling in person at my private practice just outside Bury St Edmunds. There is easy access to parking and public transport.

My previous career as a midwife is where I initially developed my interest in the myriad of problems we all face as human beings. Witnessing birth, big role changes, life milestones, overwhelm, and grief and loss is where I first developed my belief in the power of connection with others.

I have worked previously in private practice in Cambridge and with an addiction charity in Ipswich. I have considerable experience in the many challenges we all face in life and relationships in an increasingly complicated world.

 I am an integrative counsellor which means I  draw upon many different modalities. These may include attachment, trauma models, or psychodynamic theory, however, ultimately the power of therapy is in the relationship. Us building a trusting,  honest, and open relationship exploring whatever challenges you are facing in a compassionate way. I am not there to lead you, it is your time. We all have a deep need for connection and it is often old patterns and adaptations that can stop us from growing in the present.

Not one of us is the same, we are all complex beings with many different histories, traumas, and challenges and yet fundamentally we all have a need to be heard and understood.

In my spare time I love hiking, walking on the beach whatever the weather, and spending time with my two golden retrievers.Being outside in all weathers with the dogs has a wonderfull knack of brightening the greyest of days.
