Would you like to feel happier in life? My practice, among others, focuses on mental health issues such as stress and anxiety, depression, trauma, bereavement and loss, relationship issues, eating issues and suicidal thoughts.

Counselling gives you an opportunity to talk in confidence, with a skilled practitioner who will help you explore any issue or decision which is necessary to improve quality of life. Issues may include bereavement, loss, stress, anxiety, carer issues, abuse, relationship difficulties, sexuality, work related situations, depression, eating distress, trauma or lack of self-confidence. I believe we all internalise emotions at times, if we can remind ourselves to talk about our feelings with a professional, the rewards may prove to be enormous, helping you to find your sense of self and discover the quality of life you deserve.

Do you feel that you are always doing for others but not getting anything back? Do you feel that you are putting on a mask and hiding your true feelings ? Do you feel lost or confused but don’t really know why? Or do you feel you have have started to disconnect from others or feel you struggle to make connections ? If you answered yes to any of these, I believe I have the skills, knowledge and experience to help you discover what is preventing you from being you and having your needs at the Self Centre.

Are you hurting today, have you been feeling bad for a while? Maybe you feel nothing? We can explore together what is happening to you and why you are feeling like this. In therapy you can release these emotions and be free of them. I can support you to make the changes you may want to. If you often feel down, angry, tearful, scared or feel ashamed. You may be so fed up with it all you want to run out of this world to leave it all behind. You may be scared but cannot say why. If any of this is upsetting you and you find it hard to cope with everyday life tasks please don't suffer alone, I am here to help you.

Struggling to cope with negative emotions can feel very isolating and, by the nature of some problems, guilt and shame can make us feel stigmatised and prevent us reaching out for support even when its not our fault. People come to counselling for all kinds of reasons from childhood trauma to life events as adults such as divorce, bereavement and stress and what they all have in common is a desire to feel better and begin to enjoy life. Some people find they use alcohol or drugs in an attempt to cope with their feelings but inventively this creates more problems.

Hello I'm Nicole, a humanistic integrative psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor with many years experience of working with individuaIs, organisations and groups. Twelve years ago I set up Peel Psychological Consultancy, a private counselling service and training centre in the hope that I'd be able to create a space in which the client felt, respected, accepted, supported and understood. It is my belief that relational trauma lies at the heart of most psychological distress therefore, whilst I adhere to theory and research, it is the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist that I find most important and effective.

Teen Counsellors

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
