Counselling / EMDR, Female, 16 years, 2022
"We found Nicola via the BACP website as we wanted a reputable service for our daughter, and were advised to look on there due to a long waiting list for support at local services. There were approximately 12 therapists to choose from in our area, we chose Nicola based on her write-up about the service she offers and also her photo. The write up included her wide range of experience, which seemed to fit with exactly what we required.
Nicola was fantastic from the very first text message contact we had. Nicola has provided our daughter with counselling and EMDR therapy. The counselling was the initial therapy and this built up to EMDR. Nicola allows all of her input to be at your own individual pace and offers reassurance every step of the way. Nicola is born to offer therapeutic services and we are so pleased to have met her. The support she has provided which is far more valuable and individual to what is offered from main stream services.
Nicola supported our daughter through EMDR therapy, which was not easy at times but Nicola's reassurance saw us through. This has been amazing for our daughter to deal with a past trauma, which we would not be where we are today without Nicola supporting her to process this. We would recommend Nicola 100% for her counselling and EMDR therapies. We will never forget her support."
EMDR / IFS, Female, 35 years, 2022
"I came to Nicky because I felt I was unable to connect with my daughter. I have struggled for years with feelings of inadequacy and the inability to harness my maternal instinct. I lost my own mother at a young age and was clearly carrying that childhood trauma with me. During our first appointments Nicky gave me the safe space I needed to open up about my past. We moved through the therapy at a pace I felt comfortable with. I always felt safe and never felt any judgement. We eventually moved on to two different types of therapy that Nicky recommended. We used both EMDR and IFS therapies. I have done some research into both therapies and both have great reviews, however all therapies require a therapist that is able to guide you through the process in a supportive and positive way. Before we started the EMDR therapy I had some reservations about the process. Nicky was able to help me understand the process in detail and guide me through it safely. Considering the amount of trauma I had carried for years, and the effect it was having on my life, I was able to complete the therapy in a relatively short period of time. The whole process of therapy with Nicky has been amazing, difficult at times, but utterly life changing. I cannot thank Nicky enough. I have my life back and feel totally empowered as a mother."
EMDR / Counselling, Female, 55 years, 2022
"Nicky has without doubt transformed my life. I started seeing Nicky for counselling after a massively traumatic event linked to work. Over the years since then, she has helped me through the death of my dad, and any number of work and personal challenges. She has helped me to gain greater balance and calmness in my life and to keep things in balance even though I do a massively demanding and stressful job.
The most incredible difference Nicky has made was when I reached the point when I was ready to face historic traumas in my life through EMDR. I loved the fact that I was NOT going to have to discuss every minute detail but rather through Nicky's guidance and facilitation, she skilfully helped my own brain process all those events and experiences that had previously paralysed parts of my life. I never thought it was possible to process the traumas that have had me on antidepressants for years. I can now look back on those experiences as though glancing through the thick glass of a train window as the memories whizz past. They don't trigger me any more. The trauma that plummeted me into depression is 20 years ago - I wish I had found out about EMDR far sooner. I finally appreciate that I am strong, resilient, good enough just as I am. No words can possibly sum up the lightness this has brought to my life, the deeper sleeps, the calmer heart, the deep inner confidence in myself."

"I started going to therapy with Nicola last January and it was the start of me taking a big step forward in life. Over time I started to feel so much more positive and I now carry calming and coping mechanisms she taught me on a daily basis. She made me feel at ease and so comfortable like talking to a friend. It was easily the best decision I have made and I shall be forever thankful."
Counselling, Male, 22 years, 2022
"I started seeing Nicky after I begun struggling a lot with anxiety. Nicky helped me through this and was very patient throughout our sessions. I went from struggling with many aspects of daily life to being able to live my life in full again, I could not thank her enough"
Counselling, Female, 56 years, 2022
"I contacted Nicky having researched suitable counselling services in the Doncaster area. We agreed to an initial meeting where Nicky was very clear about her role and the expected outcomes of any counselling / talking therapy sessions. Nicky is both very professional and welcoming in her approach and she set out the guidelines for the sessions in a clear and concise way. I very much appreciated this style of communication and created a connection with Nicky which I felt would benefit me going forwards. My therapy journey has been quite a revelation for me, with Nicky guiding me along the way to arrive at suitable and understandable conclusions. She is able to direct the session in a manner that shows both empathy and compassion. I find Nicky to be non-judgemental and responsive in her communication skills. The environment is welcoming and safe with no risk of breach of confidentiality. I have been able to make changes in my life that 3 months ago I did not think possible. I have arrived at a much better place of understanding about both my past and my present, allowing me to see a better future. I am aware that the changes have been made by myself but I am greatly appreciative that Nicky helped facilitate the journey and has enabled me to become more self aware. I would highly recommend Nicky as an excellent, experienced and skilled counsellor."
EMDR, Female, 15 years, 2022
"EMDR has helped me massively in doing everyday tasks I was too anxious to do before, like getting the bus for school. I no longer have to panic and worry over trivial things, and can be in the moment and enjoy things. It's extremely useful, and has helped me a lot in understanding where my anxiety stems from. I highly recommend it to anyone who has experienced trauma in the past"
Bowen, Male, 11 years, 2022
"My son is 11 and awaiting a diagnosis for ASD and ADHD. His meltdowns were daily and were getting out of control. He did not sleep any more than 2-3 hours per night and over ate never being full. After just 1 session of Bowen Therapy with Nicky we noticed a massive change. My son now sleeps up to 11 hours a night, he has a healthy appetite and knows when he is full and we've had no meltdowns in 3 weeks. A huge thank you to Nicky and the magic she works"
IFS, Female, 45 years, 2021
"For as along as I can remember I have struggled with mayor abandonment issues, resulting in abusive relationships and active people pleasing, so I would not be rejected. Accompanying this was loneliness and severe episodes of deep sadness, which would come over me out of the blue. I had suicidal thoughts on a regular basis. I massively struggled with regulating my emotions. It was not until I started doing some IFS work with Nicky that I started to understand why I have always been this way. We established the root cause was childhood trauma. Nicky taught me all about my parts within and how to get curious about every part, instead of being petrified of and angry with the ones who was causing me such distress. She taught me how to operate from the "self" , the real authentic me, from within and sit and listen to these parts and hear why they are upset and acting out. I now understand how my inner system works and that the pain was caused by my very young parts, who are exiles, who suffered abandonment as a baby. Nicky taught me that it was possible to unburden the exile parts....this will be the next step during my sessions. My sessions so far with Nicky has provided me with hope for the future and enabled me to understand my inner working and my own emotions and why I experience them. I feel as though a weight has been lifted off my shoulders with these new insights. Without Nicky's help, I don't think that I would have been here today. I look forward to completing my IFS journey with Nicky., and will complete this review then. In the meantime, I just wanted to share my story to encourage others to take the first steps to a new life" .
Bowen Therapy, Female, 34 years, 2019
"I was recommended to Nicola around 4 weeks ago and thank goodness. She’s an absolute angel. Since then I have had 3 sessions of Bowen therapy. After having a C-section 10+ years ago I have been in pain most days with it getting increasingly worse just lately. I have been under the hospital and sadly they have never been able to help me in anyway. After my first session with Nicola my pain was reduced massively but I still wasn’t convinced, bearing in mind for around 9 years I have tried many treatments with no avail. Well here I am 3 weeks in and have only had one bout of slight pain! I am sold! Nicola is very genuine and has a relaxed, calming personality which makes you feel at complete ease whilst having your treatment. Everyone should try Bowen it’s a game changer. Running a holiday sale or weekly special? Definitely promote it here to get customers excited about getting a sweet deal."
Bowen Therapy, Female, 16 years, 2019
"Bowen therapy is really good, it helps my mind and puts me in a better frame of mind. I feel happier and more relaxed. Bowen has helped me to do things in my life, like be relaxed enough to go to college in Doncaster for a full week, which I was struggling to do. I have confidence to try new things. Nicky is really nice, she likes my cat too! If I don’t have Bowen I feel stressed." Bowen Therapy - (Mum) "Nicky has been working with my daughter for around two years now. She has tried a few different treatments and has built a fantastic relationship with Nicky as her professional therapist. This in itself is great as she won’t normally engage with professionals, however, Nicky has taken the time to build a trusting relationship with her. Most recently my daughter has been having Bowen Therapy and it has made an incredible difference to her mental health. She is calmer and more confident and positive. Her aggression and self-harming are now under control and she is now succeeding in challenges such as taking exams and attending college, both of which seemed impossible before trying this treatment."
Reflexology & Bowen Therapy, Female, 46 years, 2019
"I have been receiving regular therapy and treatments from Nicky for the past 16 years; Reflexology in the main and latterly Bowen. I have always felt an extremely positive effect, both mentally and physically from Nicky's treatments, which is why I have never felt the need to seek another therapist. Nicky has a special connection with her clients. She genuinely cares about each and every person who walks through her door, takes the time to find out exactly what they're hoping to achieve and strives to give the best of herself every single time. I can't recommend her highly enough. She's also awesome at waxing!"
Reflexology, Female, 51 years, 2019
"After discovering that reflexology therapy was the only thing that worked in treating my severe sciatica spent years looking for a good practitioner and not someone who offered a light foot massage. I struck gold when a friend recommended Nicky, I had finally found a fantastic, truly professional reflexologist. I now have monthly appointments without fail, never suffer from sciatica and feel completely re-balanced, mentally and physically, after my treatment which also includes 15 minutes of reiki. I would recommend Nicky to anyone suffering from musculo-skeletal or sciatic conditions for pain relief and a great sense of well-being. She is based in Doncaster but is easily commutable from Sheffield, Barnsley and Rotherham."
Bowen, Female, 65 years, 2019
Facebook review "Severe pain had left me with dark thoughts .. A little over a year ago I started Bowen therapy with Nicola, I was in a bad way having been seen by the crisis team because severe pain had left me with dark thoughts. On my first visit Nicola asked relevant medical questions and out of 10 where was my pain level, I replied 12/10 Nicola explained what she would be doing ( leaving the room in accordance with Bowen practice), I had walked in using 2 crutches and needed steps to get onto the couch. After about half hour I really thought this treatment was a wind-up, how could anything this simple work? Was I wasting my money? When the session ended Nicola passed me a glass of water as always, helped me down from the couch then asked the same question - what level is your pain? I stood there in total shock looked left then right, my answer? ZERO! I walked out with just 1 crutch which I now just use for balance - yes, my pain comes back but not as severe as it used to be. Nicola you are a life saver! My life without you and Bowen, I really don't think I would still be here."
Reflexology, Bowen and Reiki, Female, 48 years, 2019
"I have been seeing Nicola at her practice in Doncaster for 2 years for therapy to help manage my sciatic pain, knee pain and stress tension. I always come away from my appointment feeling great and my pain reduces a couple of days after my treatments. Nicky recently qualified in Bowen Therapy which I initially found to be a weird experience, however I have actually found the treatment to be surprisingly effective in reducing pain levels. I happily recommend Nicky to everyone I meet that mentions experiencing aches and pains."
Full Body Massage, Male, 48 years, 2019
"After suffering with a lot of back complaints and pain for many years due to a prior work accident, I hit a point where I was taking numerous medications that just weren’t working anymore. I was referred to Nicky for a consultation about alternative therapy to see if they would help. I now see Nicky in Doncaster on a regular basis. The treatment she offers is phenomenal and after each appointment I feel so much better! I am in far less pain, relaxed and completely de-stressed. I still do a very demanding job both physically and mentally so now rely on my treatment to put things right. Nicky is a very warm welcoming and friendly professional, very easy to get along with and comfortable to be around. I appreciate everything she does to aid my back pain."
Dramatic results after therapy, Female, 50 years, 2019
Facebook review "Treatment with this lovely lady is amazing! I had severe pain but after my sessions I feel fantastic, it’s eased dramatically and top-up sessions keep it at bay. I can’t thank this lady enough! Not only for the therapy but for listening and being there when needed."
Therapies for mind, body or soul, Female, 2019
Facebook review "I have been seeing Nikki for a few years now for holistic therapies and she has got me through some horrific times! When doctors pumped me full of more pain killers Nikki had alternative therapy solutions, which not only helped me walk again but reduced my stress and anxiety hugely! I don’t think I’d have made it through sometimes without her! She is an absolutely amazing lady and is highly recommended and skilled. If you have a problem mind, body or soul give her a call she’s my ‘knightess’ in shining armour" 😊
Bowen, reflexology, reiki, massage, Female, 55 years, 2019
Facebook review "I've been going to Nicola for quite a while now, I’ve had massages, reiki, reflexology and also Bowen Therapy. My first experience with Bowen was quite traumatic, it was relaxing and I felt good, then a couple of days later I had an almighty crack and couldn't move for a few days as I was in agony. I rested up for a while as I was going to Scarborough and needed to get about - to my amazement I felt so much better after that and was able to walk from one side of Scarborough to the other without any pain at all. Apparently the crack was something clicking back into place, I now go for regular Bowen treatment with a massage in between sessions, I would highly recommend Nicola Fitzwilliam for any of these treatments."
Various Treatments, Female, 54 years, 2019
Facebook review "Nicola is a lovely warm and caring person. She is so easy to get along with and she puts you at ease straight away. I’ve had a few treatments with Nicola and it was so relaxing. You can just chill and enjoy knowing you’re in safe, capable hands. Afterwards I felt the treatment had been quite powerful and could feel a difference, I was disappointed it was over! I would definitely recommend a holistic therapy treatment with Nicola to anyone."
Holistic Therapies - 'Stronger Communities Coordinator' - Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council
"We deliver a programme that supports families around education, unemployment and health related issues. We decided to pilot a scheme and after speaking to a number of locally based therapists we found Nicky who was able to deliver a service that encompassed what we required. We were looking for someone who could deliver holistic therapies but also had a counselling background which would enable her to understand our clients and their needs. We were very pleased with the service Nicky provided and found her to be professional and responsive to the needs of the clients and completely open and accepting of them all. Nicky maintains confidentiality of the clients and has sound procedures in place. My view is that Nicky is a very good therapist and can cater for all ages, clients referred were aged 16 years and beyond! The fact that many of the clients continue to have sessions over a year later is in itself testament to Nicky as a counselling professional."
