More Detail

17+ 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 Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts affect your feelings and behaviour. It recognises and challenges unhelpful ideas that maintain the issues you experience. The aim of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to experience healthier thoughts and feelings.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests cognitive behavioural therapy for alcohol dependence, Binge Eating Disorder (BED), bipolar disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), self harm and social anxiety disorder.

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

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.
