Lectures by Nicola Hughes

Nicola Hughes is a creative counsellor, supervisor and trainer who helps people and professionals to 'Find Themselves, Be Themselves and Grow Themselves'.

Before becoming a counsellor, she was a performing artist and youth worker. Nicola came into counselling as she felt that the people she met needed more help than she could offer at the time.

Since qualifying in 2009, she has worked for primary and secondary schools, universities, health projects, children's charities, bereavement and cancer charities, and the NHS.

She has delivered many training courses on bereavement, sexual abuse, sex and relationships, and counselling.

Nicola loves training, not just because she enjoys a crowd, but because she is passionate about delivering excellent training that is creative, relevant and practical.

She is now enjoying the good life of private practice, and trying to keep all her creative ideas and plans under control!

Nicola has particular expertise in bereavement, change and loss, and works with clients who have suffered a bereavement or are going through significant life changes.

In particular, she helps women with the transition into motherhood, which can include helping women to process difficult birth experiences, adjust to being a mother, deal with perinatal mental health issues and transition back to work.

All of her clients and supervisees are invited to work creatively, whether they meet online, face to face or outdoors. Nicola says, "Being creative allows our subconscious out, and when it's out we can really see what's going on".

She works from her 'Caravan Clinic' in Pudsey, online, and in the woods and parks nearby, offering outdoor therapy. Her work is with individuals aged 13 plus, couples and groups.

Nicola lives in Leeds with her hubby, their two little pickles and a small hound (the latter features in many of her social media posts). She loves walking, crafting, drinking coffee and eating cake with friends!
