About Mike Nicolson Counsellor

I first qualified as a counsellor in private practice when I received my diploma in 1998. Since then I have continued with my training and in 2005, following a research project, I was awarded MA with Distinction in Counselling and Psychotherapy by Thames Valley University. My training covers many of the problems of the modern world including PTSD, Male Survivors of Abuse, OCD, Relationships and Family Issues.

In 1987 I contracted a viral illness which turned my life upside down. At that time I was a man whose every day began with a 7 mile run, followed by lunchbreak in the gym and an evening either teaching or being taught Karate. My life instantly changed from this to a man who couldn’t get out of bed on his own and who had to rely on others for all the ‘normal’ functions. I was pushed around in a wheelchair, unable to propel myself and this lasted for 3 years. I was eventually diagnosed with ME and although the physical side of it was severe the psychological aspect was, for me, devastating.

This was how I came to counselling and it is not an exaggeration to say that it helped me to rebuild my life. I later decided to train to help others in the way I had been helped. Although my original intention was to help people facing problems stemming from stressful or emotional causes I became aware that these invariably produce physical symptoms as well and vice versa.

I believe that because we are all different and our problems are specific to us no one form of therapy is a panacea for all that troubles us. I use different therapy disciplines, either independently or in a combination and by doing so the amount of therapy required is often considerably reduced.

I am BACP Accredited and work under their auspices and code of ethics.
