Announcement icon Online therapy from private homes means we can be Covid-Safe and no masking is required. Ask about Walk"N Talk.
Are you struggling with stress, anxiety or relational tension or abuse? Maybe you feel as if you’ve lost direction and don’t even know who you are any more? Or you feel like you’ve tried everything to cope and get over it and still feel lost, anxious and lonely? Or worse – traumatised and can’t get out of bed or handle yourself well in public? Maybe you are struggling to make decisions and move forward. Or you want to enrich and simplify your life, and just want to talk it through with someone unbiased?
Hi. I’m Nicki and I’m passionate about supporting people experiencing mental distress – by hearing you, seeing you and walking beside you with care and compassion as you overcome your particular challenge. I offer mindfulness-based ongoing therapeutic training, as well as a strengths-based approach to personal healing and growth with single-sessions.
I was a freelance actor, and I understand the unique challenges that artists face. I also have lived experience of Narcissistic Abuse and complex trauma recovery, and am a published author on these subjects. I advocate the exploration of alternative therapies alongside third-wave psychological interventions (ACT, MSC, CFT, Buddhist Psychology).
