Nicola WilliamsCognitive behaviour therapy psychotherapist
Hi, I'm Nicola.
I understand that reaching out can feel like a daunting prospect, however many of us experience times in our life when we feel that stressors outweigh our ability to cope, and we become overwhelmed by our problems.
•Are you feeling depressed, anxious, or low in confidence?
•Are you self-critical with negative thoughts or persistent worry which you feel unable to control?
•Perhaps you've lost your motivation, or fear and panic is a barrier to doing the things you used to enjoy?
Sometimes these difficulties can appear suddenly, however often they build up as a result of one or more life events. These may be recent situations, or experiences from childhood or adolescence.
We are all unique individuals and so is our experience of emotional distress. However, one thing we all have in common is our need for understanding, connection and shared experience.
"By changing nothing, nothing changes"
Therapy can help you to be proactive and take control of your life. By working together, we can develop a shared understanding of your problems, and develop new ways of managing them. We both have an important role to play in this process, with you the expert in your own life and experiences, and myself sharing knowledge of cognitive behavioural skills.
I believe it is important for you to feel safe, valued and supported within this process and you can be assured that I will treat you with kindness, empathy and respect.
Alongside my private practice, I have over 20 years continuing experience as a qualified mental health nurse within the NHS.
I currently practice as both a mental health practitioner and a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist, providing mental health assessment and specialised treatment with a wide range of emotional and mental health problems including depression and anxiety disorders, low self-esteem, trauma and situational stress.
I am currently providing sessions online via Zoom and by telephone.
