My name is Nicolas Spooner.

I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

You can view my profile here.

Trained to work with individuals or couples, sessions can be face to face at one of my discreet therapy room in Southport or Ainsdale. Or I can come to your home if that seems preferable.

Alternatively I am also trained to offer Online Counselling, which can be an attractive option for many people. 



Here are some of the things Counselling can help you with.

(The list is not exhaustive but does include the more common

problems that clients tend to be struggling with.)

  • Grief

  • Loss

  • Bereavement

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Stress

  • Lack of Motivation

  • Trauma

  • Low Self Esteem

  • Identity Issues

  • Relationship Problems

  • Abuse

  • Suicidal Thoughts

  • Lack of Self Belief

In a Nutshell........

I could bombard you with endless information about the type of therapy I practice and why I believe it to be the best. I could wax lyrical on the advantages of the 'Person Centred Approach' and why I think it is important that you are in charge of the sessions and not your counsellor. I am more than happy to explain why it is likely to benefit you in the long run when the therapy and subject matters have been directed by you, not me. 

If you really want to know my opinion on how this type of therapy works then feel free to spend a couple of minutes reading this blog post I did on the subject.

However, if you would rather just have a more down to earth perspective on whether counselling will help, here goes...

Sometimes you know you're not as happy as you should be.

Sometimes you know why and sometimes you don't.

Sometimes you know how to make it better and sometimes you don't.

Talking through these things with a person that will not judge you but will, instead, allow you to say whatever you want, however you want, at your own pace, can often help unravel the problems in your life.
