Nicole has an inate ability to know exactly what her clients need and always is calm, clear, naturally empathetic, incisive and highly competent.
I would recommend Nicole to anyone that needs basic counselling for addiction, general relationship work and for those with significant issues that may require psychotherapy and EMDR treatment.
The work Nicole and I completed was complex PTSD and EMDR therapy. She was incredible in her ability to analyse, manage and treat a highly intricate set of problems.
EMDR is intensive and concentrated; her guidance and understanding were crucial to enabling me to move forward and successfully deal with significant trauma.
Nicole works remotely and at her home in the Algarve. My treatment was a mixture of remote sessions via Skype and face-to-face sessions for the EMDR memory work.
Nicole’s in depth knowledge and understated manner are attributes of this highly qualified, sophisticated and extremely capable therapist who equally is at ease working remotely and in face-to-face consultations.
I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Hi Nicole. l’d just like to thank you for the help you gave me. Your kind gentle care made it so much easier for me to work my problems out that I didn’t realise I was hiding inside, feel so much better l’m enjoying life again. Thank You!
“When I was at a very low point in my life, Nicole, with her soft and gentle approach, enabled me to see there was a way forward. She has many different methods and techniques which she uses depending which suits you and your problems/needs the best. Highly recommendable.”
“I felt valued and listened to while receiving treatment. From my very first session, there was a feeling of direction concerning treatment, with clear aims and outcomes. Each session felt like a challenging, yet manageable, stepping stone, and I’m still feeling the benefits to this day.”
“I came to Nicole seeking guidance, understanding, and kindness. Throughout our sessions, Nicole was gentle and insightful. She listened carefully and offered an array of resources and techniques to equip me with. I felt her sincerity in developing an effective and meaningful treatment plan, to which there was always a sense of direction and purpose. She was also very open and transparent throughout the process, allowing for true collaboration and understanding.”
“Nicole was recommended to us by the healthcare team that was providing 24/7 nursing care for my mother. My mother is completely bed bound with ALS and, although her physical well-being was being looked, after my mother’s mental health was deteriorating. Nicole spent several home visit sessions with my mother and helped her to considerably improve her general outlook on her situation. We appreciate Nicole’s input greatly and would highly recommend her – she has a thoroughly professional and compassionate manner.”
“I decided to stop smoking again in February this year. This would be my 5th attempt during 27 years as a smoker so I contacted Nicole for some hypnotherapy to help me to stop. Nicole’s technique worked perfectly, her peaceful demeanour helped me to relax, she creates a calm, tranquil environment where the sessions are held and encourages you to be truly honest and speak openly and freely. I had 2 counselling sessions first, and Nicole gave me some links to relaxation videos to practice before the hypnosis. On the day of the hypnosis I had my final cigarette just before the session and I haven’t looked back since. I don’t crave them, don’t miss them and I don’t feel that I am missing out. It’s just something that I don’t have to do anymore. I cannot thank Nicole enough for freeing me of what was a huge burden for so many years.”
