Nicolas’ Counselling Philosophy
Counselling can be a daunting and sometimes scary step to take. He understands the courage it takes to not only admit that counselling could help, but then to actually embark on that process. He does everything he can to reward your courage by providing a safe, discrete, non-judgemental environment for you to look at what is going on in your life and try to find the best way for you to deal with it and move on as a happier person.
At the core of his way of working is a belief that everyone wants to be the best they can possibly be, given their circumstances. So if you feel that life could or should be better and you’re struggling to do it on your own, then maybe he can help you find the way forward.
Person-Centred counselling is all about YOU, how YOU feel and what life is like for YOU. As far as he is concerned, you’re the expert on what’s going on in your life so it is you that should lead the sessions and identify the parts of your life you want to explore.
What can Nicolas help with?
Because he works in this person-centred way, this means that his counselling can be extremely helpful for a wide range of life’s challenges.
Stress, depression, bereavement, loss, grief and anxiety are common problems that can benefit from effective counselling. He has also worked with abuse victims, self-harm and those struggling with relationship problems.
Appointments last 50-60 Minutes. For more information please check the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy or our Counselling page.
