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!

“Words can not express the impact Wendy has had on my life. She helped me understand myself more than I thought was possible and though she says it is me that has done the work,  I know I couldn’t have made such progress without her support and guidance. I cannot thank her enough”

Kay, Calderdale



What our clients say

“I can not recommend Wendy highly enough. Her knowledge, delivery and enthusiasm is unprecedented. The clinical supervision I had with Wendy is among the best I’ve been privilege to experience since starting my Social Work journey. I find Wendy highly professional, warm and bright, just the right amount of ‘out of the box’ thinking for me (I’m a fan of ‘out of the box’, shouldn’t we all be?) and a delight to know and work with”.
