More Detail

Over 16 Years Post-Chartership Experience

Hi. I am Nicola Start. I'm a chartered psychologist - I assist individuals and couples with their psychological wellbeing. I have private sector experience as a psychologist. My focus involves Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and the specific difficulties faced by men.

What to Expect

An initial assessment appointment allows you to discover if you feel comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and decide if therapy could assist you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an initial assessment session in Amersham.

Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)

CAT identifies why your past affects your current thoughts (cognitions) and emotions. It explores your survival strategies and if they assist or obstruct you. The purpose of CAT is to help you identify fresh and useful ways forward.

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy selects therapeutic approaches to suit your preferences and the issues you encounter. It considers your subjective experiences and choices. The aim of integrative therapy is to help you develop your self-understanding.

Lacanian Analysis

Lacanian analysis focuses on your unconscious through what you say. It explores aspects of your otherness. Lacanian analysis seeks to help you procure personal knowledge and find your particular path in life.


Psychology is interested in you and your mind, feelings and actions. It offers you psychological interventions and mental health support. The intention of psychological therapy is to help you alleviate symptoms.
