Nicola Borthwick (Clear Horizons Counselling)

Counsellor in London, NW9 and Welwyn, AL6, Herts

Visit my website

I am a counsellor and trainer with a practice in Colindale, NW9 and Welwyn, Hertfordshire, AL6 and specialise in working with adults (individuals & couples) who are experiencing a difficult time in their lives. I am also a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists), working to their code of ethics and towards accreditation status.

Having taken the initial step to consider counselling, I am able to offer you a supported, safe,
non-judgemental and empathic space to explore your thoughts, feelings and in time be able to reach decisions that are right for you, and therefore move towards your own ‘Clear Horizon’.

How I would work with you:

I am an Integrative counsellor, which means that I can offer you a variety of methods of counselling suited to your needs. I can work with you in a variety of ways (Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA) and basic Psychodynamic), to help you find a way through your difficulties, so that you find your own solutions. I offer both short term and long term counselling and have experience of working successfully with counselling students and Employee Assistance Providers.

My Experience:

I have worked with a broad client group who have experienced anxiety, depression, bereavement/grief/loss, sexual abuse, relationship issues/difficulties, family issues, suicidal feelings, anger issues, OCD and domestic violence, as well as a number of other issues, including personality disorders and Asperger's syndrome.

I have also co-ordinated training in the Community Adult Education sector in north London for 20 years and have worked with an extremely diverse range of clients in terms of physical and emotional needs, which has led me to a counselling profession. I have worked with various organisations in Barnet and Enfield offering training/workshops in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Transactional Analysis (TA), Assertiveness & Communication strategies and Self Esteem for their professional staff, as well as for their clients and college students.
