About Nicola

I'm a fully trained psychotherapist and counsellor who has been practicing for over fifteen years, and I have a great deal of experience helping people in distress find resources to move through difficult experiences in a way which is helpful to them.


I am Certified Transactional Analysis psychotherapist and am accredited by the UKCP and a member of UKATA. I am also trained in the Person centred approach. I have a private psychotherapy practice in Otley.

What I Offer

I offer the space for you to talk through your issues in a safe and confidential setting, in an atmosphere of warmth and respect.

How Could Therapy & Counselling Help Me?

Counselling and therapy can help when you are feeling overwhelmed and confused, sad or just ‘not yourself’. The process can help with how you feel about yourself and how you relate to others.

How Long Will I Need?

The length of time in therapy is agreed between us, and this is initially for six sessions. Long and short term work are available.

During your Initial session an assessment will be made of your goals for therapy.

How Much Does It Cost?

The cost of each individual session is £50 per hour. Each couples session is £75.

Sessions last for 50 mins.

Call for an initial chat and we can arrange our first meeting.

Low cost appointments may be an option dependent on availability.


Our sessions will be confidential, apart from in exceptional circumstances, further information will be given at our first meeting.


If you cancel with at least 24 hours notice then there is no charge. The full amount is payable if you cancel with less than 24 hours notice.
