Nick Brownjohn Counselling
No matter what you are going through, no difficulty is too big or too small to bring to counselling sessions. Nick is here to listen to you, to accept you, to help you see more clearly, and to help you move forward.
Sometimes everyone needs some support and maybe you would like help dealing with a significant life event. Perhaps you are suffering with depression and are finding things too hard to face. Possibly the stress and anxiety that you are experiencing are impacting on all areas of your life. Maybe you are struggling to come to terms with accepting yourself. Perhaps a past event has left a wound that just isn't healing. Whatever it is that you would like help with, Nick will never tell you what to do, nor will he advise you, but he will help you to make changes in your life and help you to feel more in control.
It can be hard choosing the right counsellor but hopefully, it will help to know that as an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (in turn accredited by the Professional Standards Authority), Nick follows a strict code of ethics and follows stringent professional standards, ensuring that he offers you the best service that he can.
About Nick - in his own words...
“I have over twenty years experience of working in a variety of different roles with people from all backgrounds and ages, having first become interested in counselling when I was in my twenties and needed help coping with a significant life event. Being able to explore my worries and fears in a safe, non-judgemental way, with someone who really 'got me' was a great help to me. With this in mind, I now offer the same safe environment to people who need help and support to bring about change, and to feel more in control of their lives.
I hold an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, meaning that I work using several different theoretical approaches to best suit my client's needs. Additionally, I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society.”
What is counselling?
Counselling is a talking therapy with a trained therapist who will listen to you in a safe, confidential space in which you can explore whatever it is that is causing you difficulty. In each session, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions, without judgement or criticism. Counselling helps you to gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought-processes, and to find your own solutions to your issues, but you will not be given advice nor told what to do. A variety of approaches is used to best suit you.
How do I know if I need counselling?
Counselling can help anyone at any stage of their life. It can help you bring about change in your life and help you to feel more in control. Counselling, or talking therapy, helps many people who maybe experiencing difficulties as widespread as anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, low self-esteem, lack of direction, loss of control, domestic abuse, sexual identity and more. You do not necessarily need to be going through any trauma or life event to access counselling, but rather have a desire to bring about change in your life.

Either way, I will continue to listen and work with you for as long as it takes until you start to feel better.
