Welcome to my website and the Woodlands Practice..



   Catherine Nicholas BA (Hons) MBACP
Registered Counsellor &

Hello and a very warm welcome to my website and my Woodlands Counselling practice where I offer private Counselling & Psychotherapy Services to Adults and Teenagers 16+.

I am a friendly, highly qualified and experienced counsellor who is passionate about the work I do and the people I work with. I am a Registered member of The British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and as such I am particularly dedicated to delivering you a high quality,
professional and ethical practice.
I deal with a broad range of client issues and I have particular experience in working with clients suffering depression and anxiety. I also have a special interest in working with men and women affected by abuse and trauma and people struggling in difficult relationships.

My past experience has been within a local college and as the in house therapist for Hampshire Fire & Rescue. I now run my own private practice based in Odiham Cottage Hospital in Odiham, Hampshire.
I would be delighted to offer you an initial reduced fee meeting to see if we can work together. My office is close to North Warnborough, Old Basing, Crondall, Farnham, Hook, Basingstoke, Hartley Wintney, Fleet, Elvetham Heath, Church Crookham and Crookham village.

My view is that clients are the best people to tell you about my counselling practice as they have the personal experience to tell you how it really is so I am delighted to share some of their recent views with you.

"I did feel, how could counselling help me, how can talking help lift this darkness, I didn’t believe that it really could... By the end of our time together I was finding the answers, I was lifting the darkness.. This may sound dramatic but it has changed my life and that is a very big deal..I feel I can deal with life better now. It is scary, it is the unknown but talking in a safe place and having somebody to listen and not judge you is truly wonderful."

I am very grateful to all of those that have given me permission to share their personal experiences on my website and more genuine client experiences can be found under Client Testimonials. Counselling has clearly helped man
y of my past clients and my hope and my aim is that it could do the same for you too.

I love people. I love what I do and I really look forward to meeting with you.

Best Wishes
