Nikki Offord

I provide a safe and accepting space for you to reflect on issues that are troubling you. I believe as human beings we have the wonderful ability to change, grow and solve our own problems but sometimes we can feel stuck and/or overwhelmed and need some assistance to focus on our issues and see the situation more clearly.

I have worked in different settings in the past including the NHS as a Talking Therapies Counsellor, various charities and a sixth form college.  I work with a wide variety of client issues but because we are all different, please do get in touch with me to discuss what is troubling you.  I offer an initial free 15 minute telephone consultation where you can get an idea of what it would be like to work with me and I can check I am the right person to help you.

Particular areas I work with are depression and low mood; anxiety, low self-esteem and lack of confidence, the “I don’t know what’s wrong – I should be happy but I’m not” feeling; abuse – domestic, sexual, rape (male and female) and sexual violence; adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse; bullying; life changes and transitions including divorce, affairs, relationship breakdown, loss, bereavement, life changing illness; boarding school/ cared for childhood experiences; trauma; counselling students.

This is what one of my clients said about our work together– “I wanted to thank you for all the work you have done with me…our sessions really have changed my life for the better… I will always be extremely grateful to you for your listening ear and support” (quote used with the client’s permission).

What you can expect:

  • A confidential space to talk.
  • An opportunity to open up in a place free from judgement with a trained professional.
  • The possibility to see things from a different perspective.
  • Moving at a pace to suit you.
  • A gentle and compassionate style but with challenge if I think it is therapeutically useful for you.

I hope you decide to take the first step and get in touch.
