NICKI RAFFO counselling
BACP registered counsellor and couples therapist working with adults and young in
St. Albans, Kings Langley and
Helping you in the therapy room or online.
COVID-19 Coronavirus update:
Private online video sessions now available.
Counselling can help when we feel stuck, lost or overwhelmed and can’t find a way to make sense of those difficult feelings on our own.
I provide a safe, confidential counselling space to adults and young people who may be struggling with a range of issues.
I am also a Relate-trained therapist working with couples experiencing difficulties in their relationship.
QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE
I always place the client's needs at the centre of the work. As an integrative counsellor I draw on different skills and approaches which best suit each of my clients,
I offer short-term work (6-8 weeks), including cognitive therapy, if you are struggling with something happening in your life right now which is stopping you from functioning day-to-day. If you need to explore events and experiences from the past in much more depth, our work together would be longer-term.
An initial meeting can help us establish how best we could work together. If this is your first experience of counselling you may be feeling apprehensive: feel free to contact me with any questions, whether or not I am the right counsellor for you I can help you to understand how therapy works and what you can expect.

Alongside private work, I have extensive experience working in the charity sector - within schools for Place2be, in a local bereavement counselling service, for mental health charity Mind, and as a couples therapist for Relate.
I am also part of a team of counsellors at a charity in north London which offers affordable counselling for local adults and young people, and I work for their CAMHS-funded outreach service providing short term counselling for 13-19 year olds.
