"Nicholas helped me through a difficult and disturbing period in my life. He was empathetic and compassionate and really understood what I needed from the sessions."
"Nicholas navigated us through a dreadful time."
Nicholas's clent base is broad with experience of working with people at all levels from a range of sectors including the arts, television, banking, medical and legal professionals, academia, civil servants and students. Nicholas has also worked with Mums and, women wanting to become mums and, people not in traditional employment or looking to change career. Additionally, many clients have found themselves here in the UK having moved from another country for work or relationship reasons. Nicholas has experience of working with heterosexual, gay, lesbian and bisexual clients both individually and in couples. Generally, Nicholas's client base has tended to be fairly evenly split between men and women.
He also works with people whose public profile means they can have specific needs in relation to anonymity and/or where their lifestyle means that they require him to travel to them.
Nicholas also offers intensive couples therapy where a set of sessions is delivered in a single day, this can be at the weekend, in Chiswick or at a location more convenient for you. This option is helpful for couples in crisis or who have lifestyles that make organising regular sessions difficult.
Nicholas has worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 2003. In addition to private practice his experience comes from working for a number of counselling organisations, including five years with Freedom from torture and three years with both the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association and City and Hackney Mind. Nicholas qualified in London following a five-year postgraduate training that included the BACP registered training path in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of East London, followed by an advanced training in Existential Psychotherapy at Regents College to achieve registration with the UKCP. Nicholas has further trainings in working with couples, sexual abuse, PTSD, neuroscience and trauma, clinical assessments, mindfulness and focusing.
Prior to training as a therapist Nicholas had a corporate career, spanning some fifteen years, this included experience of senior management positions with an emphasis on marketing and strategy within the retail, telecommunications, internet and not-for-profit sectors, both domestically and internationally. He has lived and worked abroad including periods spent in Italy, Switzerland and Ireland.
Nicholas says: "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.
"I have had several therapists over my adult life and on the whole they have been beneficial. However the approach by Nicholas Rose surpassed my expectations. This was due to the combination of discussion and practical exercises that really honed in on the issues present in a way I hadn't experienced before. At a moment that was looking incredibly bleak for me and my partner, Nicholas helped us find clarity, understanding and the necessary reflection in a warm, secure and nurtured environment, for which I am very grateful for and recommend to anyone seeking help".
"Nicholas helped me following a difficult relationship break up which I was not able to move on from. His non judgemental and welcoming style made talking through my issues a lot easier. He helped me to look at things in a different way and work through to a point where I felt back in control of my life. I would strongly recommend him".
