Hi, I’m Nina
I am a qualified and BACP registered practitioner. I practise integratively which means that I work flexibly based on our relationship and your individual needs. I am aware that one size does not fit all and so I use a range of therapeutic ways of working including Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic therapies.
I have 10 years experience of supporting people in a variety of settings, including addiction treatment services, carers centres as well as educational institutions.
Issues I have worked with include but are not limited to:
Abuse, addiction(s), anxiety, beareavement, separation and loss, bullying, carer issues, depression, family issues, low self-worth, low self-esteem, relationship issues, shame, stress, suicidal thoughts and trauma.
My journey into the world of counselling/psychotherapy began whilst working for several years in a drug and alcohol treatment service within the criminal justice system. This offered me valuable insights into the emotional and psychological struggles that all people face and how talking about their experiences and trying to process events in their lives, really helped them get to a better place. I was then committed to providing a space where people can share and explore their experiences, and to support them through a process of change. From there I began my training.
I hold a BSc (Hons) Psychology as well as a further three years of Post Graduate training giving me an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling.
I adhere to the BACP's code of ethics ensuring a safe, confidential and professional practice. (http://www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/)
