Nicky Setter MBACP

Hi! I’m Nicky and I’m delighted to tell you a bit more about me.

I am a BACP accredited, humanistic counsellor and a qualified transformational coach. I offer private counselling and coaching services for adults with a wide range of difficulties.

I work from a person-centred foundation but will also use aspects of other types of counselling and coaching theory to offer an approach which suits your individual needs. I understand that when we are faced with challenging times, these take place not in isolation but within the context of our otherwise rich and complex lives. I use a holistic approach in my work, which incorporates mind, body and soul and takes account of all parts of your life, as a unique individual.

Prior to establishing my private practice I have worked as a counsellor in a local counselling agency called ARC, providing counselling services to individuals aged 16 plus, as well as being employed as a school counsellor in Reading.

My background is in healthcare where I worked as a doctor in the NHS for 16 years. Please note, that whilst my professional experience includes work as a qualified doctor, I do not offer medical services or medical advice of any kind.

In addition to my private practice I also work with doctors in my capacity as a coach with the 'Joyful Doctor'.
