Wendy Showell Nicholas

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I am Wendy Showell Nicholas, a registered counsellor and psychotherapist, NLP master practitioner, coach, independent social worker, author, mindfulness teacher, educator and speaker. All of my work is research informed and I abide by strict ethical codes of conduct, but my clients tell me it is my accessible, open minded and genuine approach that they value.

I believe that that wellbeing should be prioritised in all areas of our work and life. Certainly, trauma recovery and healing from difficult life events should not be faced alone.  In addition to being extremely helpful for people who have experienced or work with trauma, I believe that therapy is for everyone. It should be a normal life experience to build and maintain general wellbeing, just like going to a GP, the gym, or a spa!

I am a proud Yorkshire woman whose four children and one grandchild challenge me to practice what I preach in very busy circumstances!

Steve Harding, Social Work Tutor, University of Leeds, UK
