Nicholas Rose - Psychotherapist & Counsellor Adults & Couples
"Hello and a very warm welcome.
You maybe thinking, or someone else might have suggested, that talking to a therapist might be helpful. You maybe feeling nervous about seeking help and /or overwhelmed by the choice of therapists available. You maybe struggling to get started with therapy, be uncertain about whether it will help, nervous because you have had bad experiences with people in the past or find speaking about your problems painful so that you wonder whether it is worth trying. Alternatively you may have a very clear idea about what you want to achieve and what you want to happen from us meeting.
I am imagining that this will feel like a really important step for you and you will want to feel in the right place, with the right person - feel relaxed and understood. I will want you to feel able to speak freely and easily so we will be able to find a way forward for you. You won't need to worry about whether you feel judged, I'll be clear with you about what to expect from me and we will always keep what is useful for you at the centre of our time together. People come for so many reasons and want so many different things but at the centre of this is always the relationship between us, our understanding of what is needed and how that can be achieved.
I work with adults both individually and in couples. I saw my first patient in 2003, at that point my training and experience included major mental health concerns, for example five years working with survivors of torture. Since starting in private practice in 2008, my patients have tended to bring concerns such as relationship issues, anxiety, panic attacks, unhappiness, disappointment, loss and diagnoses such as depression, bipolar and anxiety disorders, autism and ADHD. My practice includes a high proportion of people with personal wealth, highly successful and well paid careers, are high achieving or well known; around half of my clients are men and then there are many people who have migrated to the UK. I work with couples who bring a diverse range of difficult experiences and concerns, many of my couples are also in same sex relationships".

“I believe everyone can improve their quality of life irrespective of limitations if the right focus is applied. If I am working with you as an individual we will together seek to establish the conflicts that are causing you difficulty and look for ways in which you find might a resolution. If you are a couple we will be meeting to establish the dynamic that is created by you being in the relationship and work together to see what you can both do to try and ensure your relationship becomes happier, healthier and more fulfilling.”
Please note that Nicholas usually works with his dog, Holly a chocolate labrador, in the room. However other arrangements can be made if this is a concern for you.
