Nicky’s primary therapeutic approach is Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT). It is recognised internationally as effective in treating emotional and behavioural problems including depression (mood disorders) and anxiety disorders such as social anxiety, panic disorder, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

CBT is a practical and goal-directed therapy with the aim of helping the client to become their own therapist. It is based on the premise that it is not our situation, but how we think about our situation, that determines our emotional well-being. Nicky has been fortunate to train with local and international practitioners in the field of CBT and Schema Therapy. Her practice focuses on individual therapy with adults.
