I am Nicola Hughes and I have over 12 years counselling experience. I am an integrative counsellor, which means I have studied more than one counselling theory. In my case psychodynamic and person centred.
Psychodynamic believes that we all have an unconscious mind called the subconscious and that feelings held in the unconscious mind are often too painful to be faced. This causes us to create defences such as denial to protect ourselves.
Person centred, I am able to be with you and listen to you in a non-judgemental way. Helping you to cope with whatever you wish to bring or talk about.
I have also learned some CBT techniques and have further trained as a child counsellor and supervisor.
I am able to work with anyone of any age and have the added benefit of being able to travel to your home (or school). If however you would prefer to be seen in an office, I have access to a lovely therapeutic room in Gloucester Docks.
