Nicholas King Counselling & Psychotherapy

Review

Nick is very friendly and professional CBT therapist! Before I came to Nick, I was feeling very low and anxious with PTSD due to the broken down relationships and unable to see my daughter whilst at the same time going through the lockdown. Nick patiently went through in depth with me about the various areas of of my life and provided a sympathetic ear whilst at the same time correcting and guided me through the aspects of seeing things from a different perspective and getting used to developing thoughts with positive affirmations. Nick's contribution through advice and guidance was of great help to me in bringing about a change in myself and getting my confidence back and feeling reassured. I am now starting to open up myself to the new experiences of life rationally. I certainly recommend Nick to anybody seeking counselling and CBT.

Review

Nick is professional and at the same time quite practical, realistic and bespoke. I had a steady journey with Nick on CBT in bringing down my anxiety level over 11 sessions. This was my first therapy of this kind and it has been a good experience which will be highly useful in my future life. I highly recommend Nick, if anyone else is looking for a friendly service.

Review

Although my time with Nick wasn't the longest, the eleven sessions I had was most definitely a memorable experience. He has helped me with the insomnia and low mood i had at that time, alongside bringing great comfort for me to share my own struggles in my Christian walk as well.

As i was studying counselling for myself, Nick was gracious enough to not only provide me with warm therapeutic rapport and engagement but instructive, helpful and very useful advice to aid my learning as well. Nick specialising, but not limited to, cognitive behavioural therapy and the person centred approach, gave me great awareness and insight into what different counsellors provide. However, beyond all that, Nick's kind and gentle presence was more than enough for me to recommend Nick to anyone seeking counselling.

Review

Therapy with Nick has proved to be very effective. Everyone around me has noticed the change in my mood and I have noticed this too. I feel much better about myself and have a more hopeful outlook on life in general. Thanks to our therapy sessions I have now developed many techniques that allow me to control my anxiety. Nick provides a safe space where you feel at ease, allowing you to openly share your thoughts and feelings. If you are considering therapy, I would really recommend Nick!

Review

Dr King has been fantastically helpful throughout the current climate, with Covid and such being on everyone's head. Whilst I have been handling low mood and other such issues, hes has been able to listen empathetically and provide a wealth of resources based on what we both think could be avenues to explore.
He constantly not only listened but actively asked for my opinion on ideas and allowed me to feel a sense of control over my own mental state.

Also very communicative, and actively reminds you appointments or scheduling adjustments.
Highly recommended.

Review

When struggling with a low mood and relationship troubles, Nick was a great help in affirming how I feel and addressing issues I’ve had in a caring and resourceful way. I felt that he truly understood what I was feeling and questions he asked helped me view what I’d be going through from a different perspective. Friendly and warm - I’d recommend him to anyone.

Review

I started to see Nick due to my anxiety levels being really high during lockdown. He helped me to get through it by teaching me methods of how to calm myself down when my levels were really high. Nick also listened to the issues I had and talked through them with me. He understood my needs and went with what I needed in my weekly session. I highly recommend Nick and if I ever needed any further session I would 100% go back and see Nick.

Review

I very much appreciated working with Nick. I found him to be calm, practical and very much focused on actionable realistic advice. I would definitely recommend him

Review

Nick makes you feel so comfortable and at ease. Would highly recommend him to anyone suffering.

Review

I was looking for a therapist with experience in couples counselling and found Nick through Google. My marriage was lacking understanding, patience and communication. Although my partner was reluctant at first and I was a little nervous, Nick helped us both feel at ease. He doesn't take sides, helps one to see another point of view and often adds humour to lighten the mood. We chose Nick to help us improve and enhance our relationship before it was too late and we are thankful for him steering us in a more positive direction.

Review

Our son was suffering from severe OCD when he visited Nick, because of OCD he became very impatient and short temper and it affected his study and our family relation too.
From the first initial session, our son felt very comfortable and calm and we know that we are going through the right path.
Nick knows how to approach a difficult case and transform it into a healthy conversation; he is a calm, qualified, knowledgeable, thoughtful, supportive, engaging counsellor and a great listener.
Nick was initially meant to help us with our young son but he did much more than that for us as a family.
He gave us some valuable insights on parenting and dealing with a teenager.
We highly recommend him.

Review

I came across Nicholas after some extensive google searches, to help with my Anxiety and Panic as well as managing my emotions after a difficult year.

His strategies and techniques helped me massively. They were simple but very effective and helped me get out of a hole and I am truly grateful that he was able to help me.

He is friendly, compassionate and a true professional. Thank you once again.

Review

Nicholas is a very kind professional man.
He knows he trade and offers a very unbiased and positive way to get you through your troubles. I really don’t know what I would have done without him or where I would be right now.

Review

Could not recommend Mr King enough, very calm and welcoming. Put me at ease from my very first visit, Many thanks, continue your great work!

Review

Following a period of uncertainty in our relationship we started seeing Nick. We started weekly sessions and then reduced them over time. Nick was always friendly and understanding. He got me and my husband talking which was just what we needed. He got us back to where we needed to be and we are both grateful for his help.

Review

Wonderful counsellor who makes you feel immediately comfortable. However, I am not sure if he is a specialist in narcissistic abuse. After six sessions the word had not even been used. I tried another therapist and after ten minutes it was clear that I was a victim of narcissistic abuse. Therefore the tools which I had been going through with Nicholas in respect of assertiveness were much less relevant. I worked through their manipulation and loss of identity issues which were never touched on with Nicholas. Definitely not a waste of money as helped me start opening up and venture on a path to self healing through therapy. However narcissistic abuse victims can experience symptoms like PTSD and these need gentle specific attention

Review

Nicholas has been amazing in helping me dealing with overwhelming problems in a more positive way, and implement changes that helped me be in a much better place. He is a very good listener and is great in showing empathy which empowers you to talk with honesty about your feelings and thoughts. The sessions seem to pass very quickly and I feel I am progressing with very positive changes. I feel I am much more aware of my thoughts, feelings, behaviours and actions, and how all these are interconnected.
I definitely recommend Nicholas to anyone who is going through something challenging in their life and need help to deal with it more positively.

Review

I enjoy seeing Nick he makes me feel at ease, I'm particularly impressed that he always personalises his approach to ensure that his input is as effective as possible. He is an effective communicator with good listening skills. Although he is obviously in demand he has a good availability and can always fit me in at a time which suits my busy schedule, even late in the evening.

Review

Nick is a calm and non judgemental person. His approach to counselling is excellent.

Review

Nick is a genuine, kind, professional counsellor, who has helped me through some difficult times. I would not hesitate to recommend his practice, if you are struggling and think you may need some help, but are hesitant about taking that first step, use my recommendation and give Nick a call.
