Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach
Nicola works from a mainly Humanistic/Integrative perspective, but understands each client is unique, and not every individual benefits from the same treatment approach and therefore incorporates various therapeutic approaches such as CBT, Solution-focused or Psychodynamic Therapy.
Nicola works with clients on a one-to-one basis, in a way that is best suited to their individual needs so they can explore their thoughts and feelings to better understand the particular circumstances or issues that are problematic for them and draws on their strengths and resources in order to enhance the quality of their lives.
