Hi, I am Nicola White a fully qualified and insured Counsellor, Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. I work with clients on a one to one basis and facilitate small group therapy on particular issues to promote health and wellbeing.
I see life as a journey, with highs and lows. I also know from personal experience and the training I have completed that we do not have to struggle with life's problems on our own or in silence. There are people that care. Speaking out and getting the right support is what helps us the most!
My work history over the years: has given me experience working with children in nursery and education settings, the elderly in health and social care, young people in foster care, children homes and children's secure units. I have experience with vulnerable adults with learning difficulties and living with down syndrome. Volunteering for Victim Support gave me knowledge of how people can be affected by a crime commited against them. I learnt a great deal about a wide variety of problems, individuals thoughts, feelings and how they contribute to behaviours in all my work areas and how they affect the quality of life. In 2011 I became a qualified therapist as I wanted to help people on a deeper, psychological level to feel better about themselves and their lives.
I am a member and accredited by TheNational Hypnotherapy Society and The National Counselling Society to practice as a competent professional practitioner in Hypnotherapy, Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am on the Accredited Voluntary Register which is a register set by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. I am bound by a strong code of ethics in which I apply to my business for the best interests of you and my clients.
My working aim is to empower as many people as possible with the knowledge I have to help them deal with the negatives in their lives and live a full and meaningful positive life. A life full of the goals and achievements they are wanting to have but for whatever reason have not. Although sadness and negative experience is part of life, Life is intended for living and enjoying to the best we can.
