Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Jamie Nicol, I am a qualified, accredited and experienced therapist offering a confidential and professional service to individuals and couples of all ages in Stafford and Birmingham. I hold a fully enhanced DBS clearance certificate (formerly known as CRB) and am a recognised practitioner with BUPA.
My work with people can be either short or long-term depending on what best suits a persons individual need. I provide a variety of therapies including Counselling, CBT and EMDR. Please click on the tab ‘Services’ for brief descriptions of how I provide these services. I work with individuals who are experiencing issues relating to depression, health, low self-esteem, work related stress, anxiety, abuse, anger, trauma, sexuality, bereavement and loss and many other problem areas (please see the list on the right hand side of the page). I also work with individuals or couples who are experiencing relationship difficulties perhaps as a result of the issues mentioned.
Many of us can benefit from the understanding and support of a skilled and reliable person at challenging times in our lives. This support can help us make sense of some of our thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I believe the overall aim of therapy is to provide people with space to talk and reflect on issues in their life that feel important, and also ones that are possibly causing distress. I see my role as a therapist as building trusting and effective working relationships with people and providing a safe environment where they can gain further awareness, alongside exploring ways in which they can better cope or manage. I consider myself to be a grounded practitioner who respects peoples’ values, culture, existing skills and autonomy. I also firmly believe that we are all capable of making productive changes when we are ready and able.
Both of my offices are comfortable and discreet and there are free parking spaces nearby each location. I can also provide home visits in certain situations although we would need to discuss this option beforehand.
Have a browse through my website, hopefully it will provide the information you require to make an informed choice about whether you would like us to work together.
Whatever you decide to do I wish you well, Jamie.
