Nick trained as a psychodynamic counsellor after a long career in journalism. With more than a decade’s experience, he began his counselling training with the Herts and Beds Pastoral Foundation, now The Counselling Foundation in 2003.

Nick uses his training and journalistic experience to foster confidence in clients helping them get through complex, often traumatising, personal experiences.

Nick was Centre Head of the St. Albans Centre from June 2013 until August 2015 and has now taken the role of Bedford Centre Head.

What do I like best about working for the Foundation?

“The commitment to deliver open-ended psychodynamic counselling, and the Foundation’s pursuit of charitable objectives. And I also value our status as a qualified provider of short-term counselling service commissioned by the NHS, which protects the foundation’s ability to provide affordable counselling to all sections of the community.”

What do I believe we achieve for the community?

“I believe that we serve the community through our commitment to the equality act whereby our service is open to all people whatever their background or circumstances. People can face inequality or exclusion for many reasons including their race, religion, age, gender, marital status, disability, sexual orientation and income level. Adhering to this equality duty is fundamental to the day to day activity of every counselling centre, in the foundation.”
