Psychotherapy & Counselling

Nicole George MBACP, MBPsS, MSc, MA, PG Dip Counselling

I am a BACP registered psychotherapist who has been practising for over 20 years. I have extensive experience working with a broad range of clients privately and in the NHS and my therapeutic approach is collaborative and pluralistic.

Depending on each client’s particular situation, an experience of therapy is jointly created that aims to help that person get closer to their unique potential and desired life outcomes. This way of working is informed by humanistic principles and ideas from a broad range of philosophical and psychotherapeutic disciplines. These include psychodynamic theory and third wave cognitive-behavioural techniques that are adapted to meet the needs of each individual client. I also like to practice holistically incorporating how the body feels, breath work, energy levels, relaxation techniques and some meditative practices. Additionally, I am a firm believer in the power of connecting with nature in times of stress and there is also scope for “walking therapy” in outside spaces. I adhere at all times to the codes of ethics laid out by my professional registration bodies: the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

The first session is free. This gives the client the opportunity to see if they think we could work together and vice versa. Session fees are reduced to £40 for clients who prefer to undertake sessions online. Face to face therapy is on a Monday at Bridport Complementary Health and charged at £50 per session. Further details regarding my practice are offered in the Client Agreement Form, given to each client at the start of therapy.
