As a clinical arts therapist (AThR) working with adolescents and adults I offer an alternative to talk therapy and counselling. When we can’t find the words to talk about our concerns, arts therapy provides an alternative pathway to discover what is troubling us. Being "good at art" is not important in arts therapy - the process is our focus not the product. For people with trauma histories our sessions will also focus on nervous system regulation and how to manage states of fight, flight, freeze and fawn. Engaging with creative processes invites presence and helps reduce nervous system dysregulation.

A few therapy appointments with me can help to get you through a specific situation such as a traumatic loss, injury, relationship crisis or a major decision. We can also transform deeper problems, such as mood issues, unresolved trauma, or school, work, family stress with longer term work together. I recognize you are investing in therapy and the intention is that we quickly identify the difficulties you bring and give you strategies to improve your life. Many people value the relationship we build and come back for top-ups of support when needed, either face to face or online.

If you have been feeling lonely, sad or anxious, we can share a safe space where you can tell me your concerns. The main purpose of therapy is generating deep awareness of one's own personality and behaviour, understand about your inner world (thoughts, emotions, feelings), inquiring how our past affects our present. With this understanding one can move onto learning skills in order to manage emotions and behaviour. The therapeutic approach I use depends on the client's needs and resources available, with a strong foundation on a trauma-informed approach.

Kia Ora, Hello, my name is Nicola. I believe that each person has their own story which shapes who they are. Through my work, I strive to foster a safe space where clients can tell their story, gain insight into their own strengths, and help them bring about a preferred future. I believe everyone deserves to experience success, that we all have the strength within ourselves to overcome adversity. It is for this reason I work mainly using a Solution Focused approach, along with CBT, ACT and some psychoeducation.
