Currently engaged in on-going training in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling, Nina tends to favour an approach that prioritises the unique quality of each client-therapist relationship. Likewise, keen to respect the individual nature of each person’s experiences and their particular motivations for pursuing therapy, Nina invites you to collaboratively explore any challenges and tensions you might be encountering through dialogue and varied forms of creative communication. She has a strong believe in people’s shared capacity to make gains in self-understanding and self-acceptance when supported by a warm, non-judgemental and empathic relationship that fosters a sense of trustworthiness.
Nina practices in accordance with the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), thereby ensuring the provision of a secure, reliable and confidential relational environment. Nina also has an Enhanced DBS (previously CRB) Certificate, participates in regular supervision, and volunteers as a bereavement counsellor for Cruse.
Beyond Nina’s therapeutic practice, she has studied psychology at undergraduate, masters and doctoral level and continues to teach on related degree programmes. Her related research predominantly employs an approach defined by an overarching aim to acquire a deep appreciation of the subjectively lived experiences of others, especially in relation to voluntary activities characterised by uncertainty and risk.
