Welcome to Nicki Richardson Counselling

Sometimes we all need a little more support

I am an experienced BACP accredited psychotherapist providing both short and long-term therapy to adult individuals in Woodstock, Oxfordshire. I also offer counselling supervision to both trainee and qualified counsellors.

Counselling and therapy in a safe, comfortable and private setting

Life is a varied journey. It can throw a lot at us and even with friends and family to confide in sometimes we need a little more support.

Counselling can help by giving you a safe space to explore your feelings and to make sense of overwhelming emotions.

I am committed to providing safe and confidential counselling in Woodstock, and potentially I can provide the support you need either in person or online.


I am a qualified counsellor and an accredited member of BACP (The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). For more information about the BACP click here.

My qualifications include BSc (Hons.) in psychology, Integrative Diploma in Counselling, Diploma in Couples Counselling, OCST 1 Online Counselling Skills Certificate and a BPS approved Certificate in Supervision.

As a tutor of counselling I have delivered a wide range of training from basic skills to Diploma level. I have extensive experience counselling for a wide variety of issues including pregnancy related problems, infertility, pregnancy loss, unwanted pregnancy and help after abortion.

What is Counselling?

Counselling a process through which you will be helped to heal yourself. It isn't about me finding a magic solution to your problems!

It's about both of us working to help you access your own strengths, to build them up and work on putting strategies in place which you can use when you need them.

How does it work?

We'll meet at least one a week and you can decide whether you want to book a set number of sessions or leave it open-ended.

Online Counselling

Online counselling might be an option for you if you have limited mobility or difficulties with transport. You may feel safer talking to someone from your own home or you may just have a busy schedule.

I use the Zoom platform for online counselling. Payment for online sessions must be made prior to to the start of the session. This can be done using the PayPay button below, you do not need to have a PayPal account
