Nicola is a trainee counsellor, studying for her Masters in Counselling with Abertay University.
Nicola’s background is in design, having studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee. Whilst working in this field, she realised that it was the interaction with colleagues and clients, forming safe and trusting relationships, which took priority for her.
Originally from Scotland, and whilst bring up her family, Nicola has lived in various locations around the UK and Northern Ireland, as well as mainland Europe and the Middle East. She believes that it is her own life experiences which have shaped her interest and connection with a wide range of people. It was this interest, and subsequent involvement, in many varied and diverse situations, which has led Nicola to train as a counsellor.
Nicola has a gentle, non-judgemental approach with an understanding that each of us is unique and, by working within a pluralistic framework, believes that different people are helped by different methods and at their own pace within a safe and confidential environment.
Nicola is a student member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
