Personal exploration with care and kindness - counselling in the Gatwick area
"Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom" - Aristotle
I'm Nicola and I've been a Counsellor and Supervisor in practice near East Grinstead and Crawley for approximately 13 years. I work alongside people to help, support and explore with them any part of their emotional life that feels difficult or perhaps is just not as they wish it to be.
Experience tells me that just when we feel we have got this thing called ‘Life’ sussed, something comes along and unbalances, or distresses, us and we have to adjust again to the new situation. Therapy and talking about how we feel (to a counsellor or therapist) can be useful at such times.
Overwhelming or challenging feelings can affect anyone at any time. We all experience feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, and low self-esteem, especially when facing an unwanted change. All are natural responses to relationship issues, bereavement and redundancy. Life is difficult and it’s a balance.
I seek to explore with people their inner world, how they feel, how they might wish to change or to understand more their values and how they are in the world.
I work with adults who have a specific matter which has caused them distress, or as part of their own personal self-development and desire to understand themselves better.
I provide people with safe time and space to explore whatever change in life that might be troubling them. This exploration is through talking; it’s the process of talking that’s therapeutic.
I am a Supervisor of other counsellors. Best practice stipulates that counsellors need to talk with an experienced counsellor who has undertaken specific further training (their 'supervisor') about the work they do with their clients. I welcome enquiries both from local counsellors in the Gatwick area and also those who wish for supervision online or virtually.
My practice is in Lingfield and within easy reach of East Grinstead, Gatwick, Crawley, Oxted and Edenbridge.

I am continuing to work during the pandemic, following the published Government guidelines. This means that I am also working virtually (online via Zoom) or on the telephone.
I have Covid-safe counselling practices and will talk these through with you prior to our first meeting.
