Explore your feelings and thoughts with care and kindness - counselling in South Molton, North Devon


"Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom" - Aristotle


I'm Nicola. I've been a Counsellor for more than 15 years. I'm based in South Molton, North Devon.     I work with people to support and explore with them any part of their emotional life that feels difficult or perhaps is just not as they wish it to be.

Experience tells me that just when we feel we have got this thing called ‘Life’ sussed, something comes along and unbalances or distresses us and we have to adjust again to the new situation. Talking about how we feel (to a counsellor or therapist) is useful at such times.

Overwhelming, challenging and distressing feelings can affect anyone at any time. We all experience feelings of anxiety, depression, anger and low self-esteem especially when facing unwanted changes. All are natural responses to relationship issues, bereavement and redundancy. Life is difficult and it’s a balance.

I aim to explore with people their inner world, how they feel and think. We might talk about how they might wish to change or to understand more their values and how they wish to live their lives.

I work with adults who have something which has caused them distress (in one or several ways) or as part of their own personal self-development and desire to understand themselves better.

I provide people with safe time and space to explore whatever change in life that might be troubling them. This exploration is through talking; it’s the process of talking that’s therapeutic.

I'm also a Supervisor of other counsellors. It's best practice for counsellors to talk with a more experienced counsellor (who has undertaken specific further training) - their 'supervisor' - about the work they do with their clients. I welcome enquiries from trainee counsellors as well as experienced counsellors in search of a supervisor. We can work in person (if you're near South Molton in North Devon) or via Zoom.

My counselling and supervision practice is in South Molton and within easy reach of Barnstaple, Bideford, and the North Devon area.

Covid-19 Pandemic
The Covid-19 pandemic changed the ways I work. I'm working with clients in person in my consulting rooms, via Zoom or on the telephone.

I've Covid-safe working practices which I'll talk through with you prior to our first meeting if appropriate. I refer to both UK Government and British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy guidelines.
