Brief info

Nicky gained her Diploma in cognitive behaviour therapy in 2016

Nicky gained her Diploma in cognitive behaviour therapy in 2016 from the Oxford University Cognitive Therapy Centre.

She had previously worked with families for over 20 years where there were significant problems either at home or in the community. She worked for the parenting organisation ‘Parent-Talk’, the Youth Offending Service and in early intervention.

Her qualifications include a degree with honours in Psychology, and she is fully qualified as a Re-Evaluation Counsellor, and a tutor of this person-centred counselling model. She has completed training in attachment theory in adults and holds a supervision qualification from Brighton University. After moving to Calderdale in 2017, Nicky worked for CAMHS in Halifax as a Cognitive Behaviour Therapist with young people up to the age of 18 who were struggling with a number of different mental health issues. Nicky has specialist experience of working with adults who self-medicate using alcohol or non-prescription drugs in order to manage their mental health and has worked alongside drug and alcohol misuse services in order to help people with these problems. She is a qualified cycling coach and has had experience in working with athletes and has helped people to get more out of their sport by conquering performance fears.

Cognitive behaviour therapy helps people explore their assumptions about themselves, others, and their world, in order to regain a balanced perspective and a rational viewpoint. Nicky gains enormous satisfaction from helping people to regain full mastery and pleasure from their lives.

Nicky loves to cycle, off and on-road, enjoys music and gigs and is currently attempting to become a saxophonist.
