Nicola Ellis


About me

I am a therapist licensed in the uk and have been practicing as a person centred counsellor for over 3 years. I have also worked for over 8 years as a developer, chairperson and domestic violence support worker to a CIO (charitable incorporated organisation) that helps survivors to heal and live a safe and happier life.
I have worked with a wide range of clients from all walks of life who are having concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, bereavement, family problems, relationship issues, work anxieties, histrionic abuse, domestic violence, self esteem issues, OCD and ASD (autism,ADHD, SPD), parenting issues.
My therapy is welcoming and supportive , I believe in treating everyone with respect, acceptance and compassion. We work on an equal footing and you are the expert in your life and we can work together to find solutions and ways of having a happier life. I work in a person centred way which means we talk about what comes up in therapy and discuss ways to cope with life’s hurdles in a better way.
It takes courage to seek a better way of living with life’s stresses and create a happier and healthier life for yourself and those around you. If you are ready to take this first step with me, I am here to support and empower you in your journey.

I look forward to working with you!

Seems to be working great.

I like Nicky's calmness and kindness when understanding you. When I discuss with her, I feel comfortable and usually calmer after each video session. Nicky helped me to understand my mind patterns and work on them with more clarity.

Nicola seems to be able to make sense from all my unorganised unloading waffling, and can pick out the priority problem, and deals with that first, when it all seems to be mixed up and overwhelming for me.

Work with me!
