About Nicky Fitzwilliam

Counsellor and client face to face

About your treatment experience with me ..

My professional relationship with a client is confidential, empathetic and understanding developed within a warm, welcoming and relaxed environment. During a counselling treatment session  you will be encouraged to feel safe and comfortable so that you can explore your inner most thoughts and feelings. 

I offer help and have experience working with a range of problem areas from relationship issues, family matters, health problems, anxiety, depression, bereavement and loss, trauma, PTSD to stress, abuse, anger management, self-esteem, communication and confidence building and bullying. 

I work with  men, women, young people and children; my specialism is working with children and young people (Therapeutic Diploma in Counselling Children and Adolescents). As a Professional Accredited Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (BACP) I strictly adhere to the Associations Ethical Framework at all times.  

My role as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist involves over 3 years work experience with RDASH as a volunteer Counsellor at St. Johns Hospice including Bereavement and loss; 6 years volunteer work with Doncaster Children’s Trust (DCST) working with Adults, young people and children; Working within DMBC project ‘Stronger Families’ offering Holistic therapies to Carers within families; Worked as part of Sudden Death Response Team across Doncaster offering support work to Children and Young People & Families in the event of near or sudden death and trauma work.  

In private practice I will work with you on a short or long term basis, guided by your personal needs, with the number of sessions being determined at any point in the counselling by you the client.

The Holistic Approach

As a Holistic therapist, I believe that the body, mind and spirit benefit greatly from holistic treatment working with the whole person physically, emotionally and psychologically to encourage the body to re-balance on all levels.

With 20 years’ experience, therapy is tailored to each individual client, by identifying which treatment or combination of treatments best suits your needs during our initial consultation.

The Therapies available:

Counselling - the  provision of professional assistance and guidance in resolving personal or psychological problems. Confidential, empathetic and    understanding warm, welcoming and relaxed environment.   

Reflexology - the manipulation of precise points on the feet that align with other areas within the body, to rebalance and release energy flow. 

Reiki - a form of healing through the hands where energy is flowing in order to release and heal blockages in the body.

 Massage  - can be used as relaxation technique by stretching connective tissue and working on tension found in muscles caused by stress.

Hopi Ear Candles - a calming and relaxing therapy, also a natural and non-invasive means of removing unwanted ear wax from ear canals.   

A range of beauty therapy treatments are also available on request.
