Over 8 Years Post-Registration Experience

Hello. I'm Nicola. I'm a registered and chartered counselling psychologist - I help individuals and couples with their psychological wellbeing. I have private and public sector experience as a counselling psychologist. My interest includes panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and relationship problems, as well as the particular difficulties encountered by men and women.

What to Expect

An initial assessment session enables you to see if you feel comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and assess if therapy could assist you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an initial assessment session in Sevenoaks.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on how your thoughts influence your feelings and behaviour. It identifies and challenges unhelpful thoughts that perpetuate the problems you experience. The aim of CBT is for you to experience healthier thoughts and feelings.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends CBT for Binge Eating Disorder (BED), Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), bulimia nervosa, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) (ME), depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), self harm and social anxiety disorder.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what issue concerning your childhood and/or adult life you discuss. The aim of counselling is to help you to talk about a difficulty and find a way forward that is right for you.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR directs your eye movements to affect how your brain processes information. The technique attempts to reprocess your frozen distressing memories. The aim of EMDR is to desensitise your painful memories.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends EMDR for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Psychology

Psychology is interested in you and your thoughts, emotions and behaviour. It offers you psychological interventions and mental wellbeing support. The objective of psychological therapy is to help you alleviate symptoms.

Relational Therapy

Relational therapy focuses on how you relate with people. It encourages your openness about the issues you experience. The objective of relational therapy is to help you identify healthy ways of relating.
