Professional Profile

My name is Nichola, I am a fully qualified and BABCP-accredited CBT therapist working with Think CBT from Derbyshire in the UK.

I aim to build a compassionate, non-judgemental and trusting relationship. I work alongside clients to help explore and better understand their difficulties. CBT can help shine a light on how we can find ourselves in a vicious cycle and become stuck from moving forwards.

CBT will focus on working together to break these links and build on a more positive cycle to develop helpful coping strategies, build resilience and help overcome your difficulties. The overall aim is to gain more control over your life and move towards reaching your therapy goals.

I work within a busy IAPT, NHS service and run a small private practice. I currently offer remote and face to face appointments.

I have had the privilege of working alongside clients for the past 20 years within the Mental health field.  

My experience includes working with adults, young people, groups and couples in various settings to include NHS, charity and private practice. I have also trained in Couple Therapy for Depression, Compassion focused therapy and Working with clients with Long Term conditions. I have a special interest in supporting clients through the menopause. 

I abide by the policies and ethical standards laid down by the BABCP and I have full professional indemnity to work as a therapist in the UK, I am DBS checked and attend regular clinical supervision.
