9 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 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, Tunbridge Wells or Caterham.

Client Centred Therapy

Client centred therapy focuses on appreciating and accepting you. It facilitates your honesty about the concerns you experience. Client centred therapy aims to help you discover your own solutions.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy focuses on how your thoughts influence your feelings and actions. It recognises and addresses negative thoughts which maintain the issues you experience. The objective of CBT is for you to have healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) indicates cognitive behavioural therapy for anorexia nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder (BED), Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), bulimia nervosa, depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) 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.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing guides your eye movements to stimulate how your brain processes data. The technique endeavours to reprocess your locked distressing recollections. The objective of eye movement desensitisation reprocessing 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).

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy selects therapies to fit your needs and the issues you experience. It considers your subjective experiences and choices. An aim of integrative therapy is to help you develop your self-understanding.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the unconscious causes of the problems you encounter. It facilitates you in becoming aware of aspects of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy aims to increase your self-understanding to give you choices.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends psychodynamic therapy for anorexia nervosa, depression and social anxiety disorder.

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.
