Nicola Hall BSc (Hons), PgDip I studied Criminological and Forensic Psychology and went onto a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at the University of Bolton. I’m currently finishing a Masters in Forensic Psychology and Crime at Coventry University.
My experience sits mainly in working with individuals with a forensic background, autism and long term health conditions, though I have worked with a diverse range of individuals which I thoroughly enjoy. I’ve also worked privately within care homes and for the NHS IAPT service. I'd describe myself as a no-frills therapist, as I find telling you what you need to hear is far more beneficial and also respectful than telling you what I feel you want to hear. I am willing to tell you the situation that I see, if you are finding it difficult to figure it out for yourself, which often opens the right conversation to get to the route and create a solution. I am inquisitive and also open in sharing examples from my own life if I find situations may be beneficial to your progression. Many clients describe me as “humorous” and “refreshingly honest”, appreciating that I will not just ask “how does that make you feel” and instead create a flowing conversation that takes us to where we need to be each session.
