Nicola Medlicott Counselling - Adults, Young People and Children

An experienced, friendly counsellor, I offer a warm, non-judgmental space for adults, children and young people to explore difficulties and help you find a way to make the changes you need to improve your life. I am a mum of both birth and adopted children and understand the issues that can arise being a parent and the difficulties associated with being a young person in todays world.

In our first session together I will give you time to talk through what brings you to counselling and I will be open with you about what I can offer and how we can work together. I may suggest individual counselling or if appropriate, parents and child together. I am a DDP informed and supervised practitioner and work with parents to help you to help your child. You are the experts when it comes to your family.

I also work with adults. If you are feeling:  Depressed  Anxious  Overwhelmed  Suffering with low self-esteem

Counselling can help you to:  Improve your relationships  Enjoy everyday activities again  Feel more confident and able to cope with life

I adapt my practice to suit your individual needs

This includes using creative techniques to help those who may find it hard to talk.
