How I can help

At Inner Vision Therapy I offer you a unique blend of counselling and hypnotherapy. You will have the opportunity to talk in confidence in a safe, trusting environment. From personal experience and from working with clients, I have found that talking therapy really helps, especially if you feel you haven’t been truly listened to before. I will help you find your voice and learn to love yourself for who you really are. Sometimes a particular issue is causing distress and hypnotherapy will help you change how you think and feel about the situation and yourself, allowing you to live a calmer, more confident life. You may choose to see me for counselling or hypnotherapy, or we may decide that a combination of both therapies will help you the most.


Counselling can help you make sense of the way you are feeling and help you find ways to move forward. In my experience, talking to someone who is trained to really listen and understand can make a big difference to how you feel about yourself and your situation. Whatever is troubling you, counselling can help you to make sense of the things that you are finding it difficult to cope with. Talking through your difficulties can help you to deal with painful thoughts and feelings, and can be the first step towards making some positive changes and taking back control of your life.


Hypnotherapy can help you take positive steps to change unwanted habits, sleep better, stop smoking, feel more confident, lose weight while eating more healthily, manage your anxiety or shake off that phobia. In my experience, you will feel calmer and more focussed with every session. Hypnotherapy is a natural and safe process, and you are always in control. I will guide you into a state of deep relaxation, and then give you positive suggestions and ideas specifically tailored to the positive changes you wish to make.

Face to face counselling

We will meet person to person in my comfortable and private counselling rooms. I will listen to what is troubling you and help you to understand the thoughts and feelings you are having.

Together we can explore the difficulties you may be having, how they are affecting you, and find ways to move forward.

Hypnotherapy in FY6 and N13


Hypnosis is a relaxed state of mind you can enter into where you are much more receptive to positive influences and suggestions that can change how you think or behave.

Using various relaxation techniques I will guide you into this relaxed state and give positive suggestions to help you change unwanted habits or ways of thinking.

Very helpful and supportive

I met with Nicola a few times to talk through some issues that were troubling me. Nicola is warm, kind and creates a lovely relaxing and supportive environment. The sessions really helped me see my life and myself from a different perspective and also provided me with strategies to cope with challenging moments in my life. I also had a hypnotherapy session which, I think, has contributed to making me feel calmer and more peaceful.
Thank you Nicola for all your understanding, support and help over the past few weeks. It has been a really valuable experience.

Thank you, it was a pleasure working with you. I'm so glad I was able to help you.

Operation preparation

I have just undergone spinal surgery which, as you can imagine, was a really big deal. Nicola prepared a pre-op relaxation download for me. I listened to it in the night before my surgery, as I was having difficulty sleeping, and in the hospital before I walked down to theatre. It was amazing. I was really relaxed and had complete confidence that the procedure would be successful. Nicola's words released me from any nerves or tension which I would otherwise have had and encouraged me to give myself over to the surgeon and his team to correct my spine and to allow my body to do what it needs to do to heal me. The general consensus is that I am doing very well, and I believe that Nicola had a part to play in that success.

Thank you

I'm very glad I reached out to Nicola. The sessions I've had have helped me more than I could imagine. I was quite reluctant to seek out any sort of help as something like this is completely out of my comfort zone. Nicola made me feel comfortable, relaxed and safe. I would highly recommend anyone struggling with a bereavement or any problem for that matter, pay her a visit if you need a place to talk.

by TM on Inner Vision Therapy

I found Nicola via an internet search and was overwhelmed with just how great she was. I did not know what to expect initially having never had counselling, but she was warm and inviting and as i relaxed into the sessions, not only did I look forwards to them week on week I found the pace and relaxed nature of them incredibly supportive for me. Nicola helped me talk through what I was unable to articulate independently and I now feel equipped to deal with these type of challenges on my own (thanks to her guidance). The most comforting thought is that should I need somebody to talk to again I will definitely go back to Nicola.

Thank you so much

Thank you Nicola for helping me through a difficult period. When I first began the sessions, I was really low, my anxiety was taking over my life and admittedly, I didn't have high hopes. Overtime, I found Nicola's sessions were making a difference in helping me cope with difficult life circumstances. The sessions felt like a truly safe space to talk openly. Nicola was a great listener, professional, compassionate, supportive and made me feel at ease. I would recommend Inner Vision Therapy to anyone suffering from depression and anxiety looking for a light at the end of the tunnel. If I encounter further problems in future, I now know where to go.
