About me

I am a qualified counsellor with several years counselling experience. I trained as a humanistic/ existential counsellor.
I believe in working holistically, encompassing the whole client, psychologically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I do not believe a person is their diagnosis, or their problems, instead I prefer to focus on the person as a unique individual with life experiences. My role is to support them as they find ways to live with, manage or overcome any issues they may be experiencing.
I believe in person centred care, which places each and every client at the centre of their care.
I am an integrative counsellor, utilising Person-Centred Therapy, and elements of DBT, Transactional Analysis, CBT, Existential Therapy, Solution Focussed Therapy, and Feminist Therapy, which are adapted to each client. I am also LGBT aware, trauma informed and multiculturally aware. This means that you receive therapy tailored for you and your needs.
I predominantly work with addiction and recovery, and have experience working with ADHD and neurodiversity, domestic abuse, trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, kleptomania, hoarding, loss and grief, boundary setting, communication problems, and self-harm.
Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked in the care industry for over 28 years, in various settings from, elderly care to working with long term institutionalised mental health care. I believe that this has afforded me with a wealth of knowledge and experience in working with people, and the ability to build effective working therapeutic relationships.
Taking the first step in seeking therapy can be daunting, and takes courage on your part, so well done in taking that step, I look forward to working with you, and feel privileged to be a part of your journey.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Nina Wilson. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Therapy with Nina has been my first ever positive experience with therapy. She really gets down to the root of what's going on and why I might be feeling this way, and working through that is how you get better.
She's incredibly understanding, and it doesn't feel like you're talking to someone who's getting paid to care, it feels like you're talking to someone who genuinely wants to help you and go on that journey with you to improve your quality of life.
I'm so glad to have been matched with her, and would really recommend her to anyone.

Nina is very professional, kind and patient. She takes pride in really listening to you and understanding you. She’s provided guidance and has helped me greatly in coping with trauma. She’s made me understand certain aspects and guided to towards a path where I understand why I feel a certain way and how to work around it. Greatly recommed! ❤️

I've had many therapists over the years so was skeptical about what more could be done for me but I like how Nina gives me space to explore things like a real person. I've had a lot of therapy that feels like they are just ticking exercises off a list but Nina lets me move between different areas as needed while helping me to ground myself and giving me exercises that are manageable between our sessions. I'm already feeling an impact and am looking forward to where we go next.
