About Me

Nicky Barrie

With a background in event management, I've had the privilege of connecting with people from around the world. My career has taught me the profound importance of effective communication and the art of building relationships. But my path took a meaningful turn when my family faced a challenging diagnosis. As a parent, I've experienced the fear, uncertainty, and emotional challenges that come with such a diagnosis. It was during these times that I realised the profound need for a supportive, empathetic ear—someone to talk to, share experiences with, and find solace in.

My commitment to helping others led me to transition from event management to the world of counselling. I've worked with a local hospice, where I witnessed the transformative power of providing emotional support to individuals and families during their most trying moments.

In addition to my private practice, I work as a counsellor in a Secondary School, where I am dedicated to young people's well-being. Volunteering for a local charity offering counselling to those aged 11 to 25 is another way I'm giving back to the community and ensuring that mental health support is accessible to all.

My commitment to continuous professional development and regular supervision ensures that I provide the highest standard of support to my clients. I'm dedicated to creating a safe and empathetic space where individuals can find support, understanding, and a path forward.
