Counselling - Mandy Nichols
Life is full of difficulties and mostly we manage, but sometimes we have problems or experience feelings which cause us longer lasting distress and we find it difficult to cope. In this situation it is sometimes helpful to talk things over confidentially with an independent professional counsellor who is trained to neither judge nor advise but to help you to gain clarity.
I currently work at a local NHS Hospital Counselling Staff. I also work for corporate companies as a counsellor and I am on call for them as a trauma counsellor. I have 6 years experience of GP referrals within the NHS as well as privately referred clients.
I am an 'accredited' member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and the United Kingdom Counselling and Psychotherapy Council.
I graduated from Leeds University with a distinction in Integrated Psychotherapy and I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Advanced Practice Cognitive Behavioural Therapy from Bradford University.
Integrative Psychotherapy/Counselling means I have been trained in many models of Psychotherapy so I tailor the therapy for each client, I do not believe that one concept of Psychotherapy suits all, how can it? We are all so very different.
Please dont hesitate to contact me for a chat to see if counselling is for you, or indeed, that I am the counsellor for you, there is no cost obligation for this. I will gladly chat on the phone or email to see if I can help.
My private practice in Ilkley is based at Ilkley Chiropractic Clinic on Railway Road, I also work from clinics in Leeds City Centre and Bingley.
