A humanistic approach to put you at ease
Therapy that helps you feel lighter and more able to deal with your day to day life
My name is Nicola Euesden, Dip. Couns Registered Member MBACP No 386486 I am a fully qualified counselling psychotherapist, my approach is Humanistic Integrative as defined below:
A humanistic approach provides a distinct method of counselling and focuses predominately on an individual’s unique, personal potential to explore creativity, growth, love and psychological understanding.
I learnt from a very young age that I enjoyed helping others, be it my friends family or strangers. Following on it was pointed out to me that all our friendship group came to me with their problems and that I should train to be a counsellor. Taking this advice I embarked on my training in 1995.
I enjoyed my studying and volunteer work immensely and qualified in 1999. Since then I have worked with the NHS in GP Surgeries and built my private practice Turning Point Counselling Service. We offer an affordable counselling service working with issues such as:
Walk & Talk
We offer one to one face to face counselling, walk, and talk where we walk for an hour and work through clients issues, online and telephone therapy.
I offer varied prices depending on your situation and how you would like to approach your session. Below are some indications of my pricing...
One to One
Online or Telephone
Walk and Talk
I’ve worked with a variety of different people down the years from all walks of life that have suffered from various different issues, below is some feedback and comments from their experience...
Hello Nicola, I hope you had a good weekend. I didn’t message over the weekend as I knew you wouldn’t be working but I just wanted to thank you for giving me a session on Friday at such short notice. I appreciate it so much. You were brilliantly helpful. Best wishes 💗
Being a man, I was dubious about how the counselling theory would work. Was it something that would actually help me? Add to that, talking to a woman - I wasn't confident I would open up.
I clicked with Nicola Straight away. She made me feel at ease & comfortable, without even realising it, we'd covered so much through normal conversation that I could cope with.
My weekly sessions were not something I dreaded, & I felt a weight lift each time a session ended. My weekly sessions eventually become bi-weekly & now I have finished my therapy I can confidently say I am a different, happier, & better person.
I will be forever grateful to Nicola for helping me through one of, if not the hardest time of my life.
Thank you for today, I feel so much better, you are honestly worth your weight in gold.
Best thing I have spent my money on this year. Honestly couldn’t recommend this lady enough. Thank you Nic.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your help over the past few weeks, it’s made a real difference to me and has given me a new outlook on things and I just want to say thanks
I came to Nicola having struggled with confidence and self-esteem issues for a long time. The COVID situation and lockdown has also impacted my mental health and Nicola provided a safe space for us to talk through all of those issues.
We did a mixture of walk and talk therapy and clinic sessions - I left every session feeling like another weight has been lifted and with practical advice to deal with ongoing situations in my life. Even my friends and work colleagues have noted my growth in confidence over the last six months. She has helped me to become a better advocate for myself and set boundaries with people in my life. I am now in a much better place and have stopped sessions, and can honestly say that Nicola's support has been priceless and such a worthy investment. I would recommend her to anybody and everybody!
I had been struggling with anxiety for a long time and toyed with the idea of counselling. I wasn’t really sure how it would help or what I would even say! I then came across Nicola and decided to contact her. Straight from the beginning, Nicola put me at ease and I felt as though she provided a safe space to open up without judgement. My sessions with Nicola have been invaluable, I have learnt so much about myself and how to deal with my situation. I cannot recommend Nicola enough, she is truly amazing!!
I was in a pretty dark place several months ago when Nicola's advert appeared on Instagram, which I took for a sign, so I contacted her and had an appointment booked within days.
It was the best decision I made, after several chats, I am in such a better place now. Nicola has helped me with grief and the effects of lockdown and I would definitely recommend speaking with her.
Feel free to either call or email me for a free, no-obligation 15-minute phone assessment so you can make a clear decision on whether you want to proceed and begin your sessions.
