He completed his Undergraduate and Master’s degree in Psychology at Swansea University, prior to training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in Kent (2020), and obtaining a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in Southampton (2023). Nicky currently offers sessions virtually and in-person within the Southampton area. Realising that sessions during 9-5 aren't always possible for people, his working hours include evenings and weekends.

Nicky's training and clinical experience to date have included working with adults and children with a wide range of difficulties including anxiety disorders, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder and childhood difficulties, having a particular interest in anxiety disorders and currently specialise in working with children and adults diagnosed with a Neurodiverse condition and/or Learning Disabilities. His Doctorate Research Thesis was investigating the application of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy when working with adults diagnosed with a Learning Disability.

He has been working in clinical mental health roles for over 17 years and has been providing Psychological Talking Therapies for the past 4 years via local NHS trusts, charities and in private practice. Within his current role he provides psychological interventions for adults experiencing acute mental health difficulties and/or have been diagnosed with an eating disorder.

Using an evidence-based approach, Nicky works mainly within a cognitive behavioural framework (standardised and Transdiagnostic), in addition to utilising Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Systemic Therapy and Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT). He understands that some adults and young people find talking therapies difficult and inaccessible, which is where he employs a Positive Behavioural Support (PBS) approach to support improvements in individuals’ quality of life and mental health.
