ABOUT NICOLE

MY PHILOSOPHY

I believe that through therapy people have the opportunity to feel seen and heard; and to begin to understand themselves on a deeper level. With this inner exploration there are opportunities to experience more self compassion, and healing. I work with clients, walking alongside them to support their unique goals while providing empathy, understanding and professional insight and therapeutic approaches to help move them forward. 

 

My counselling style is centred around the therapeutic relationship and collaborative goal setting. Creating safety requires honesty and openness on the part of both client and counsellor. Together we wade into vulnerable waters to gain a better understanding of the thoughts, feelings, behaviours and experiences keeping you from experiencing life to the fullest. Connecting to your inner wisdom, building new skills, and identifying forgotten strengths and values can support individuals dealing with challenging relationships, anxiety, overwhelm, goal setting, grief, and trauma.

I am currently seeing clients online.
