Profile - Nic Perrins
Depressed? Feeling sad? Anxious? Panic attacks? Grieving?
I'm here to listen to and support you in your journey to wellness.
I'm a qualified therapist experienced in helping clients work through their thoughts and emotions. I've been honoured to be helping people on their journey toward mental well-being for several years now.
I'm not a "life coach", and I don't claim to be an expert in your lived experience - but I am qualified in numerous therapeutic approaches that have been shown to help people work through their thoughts and emotions.
I'll draw on my training in the person-centred approach (PCA), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and dialectic behavioural therapy (DBT) to provide you with a pluralistic and integrated therapy experience. I use my learnings and experiences to help you see patterns of behaviour and unuseful thoughts - so as to help you thrive.
I have a Degree in Psychology and a Masters's Degree in Psychotherapy. I'm also a trained Dialectical Behaviour Therapist (DBT) Practioner.
I adhere to the code of ethics of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Society for Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (SdDBT).
I am experienced in working in the NHS and the Private Health Sector as a Therapist. I am also part of several specialist clinical teams that delivers Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).
Before our first session, we will have a brief introductory call to discuss how you are - what is troubling you - and how I could best assist.
As an outcome of this first call, I'll advise a way forward - most likely contracting to work together for several weekly sessions.
At regular intervals, we will evaluate progress and chart the way forward together.
