Hello, my name is Nadine Heywood and I am a counsellor and psychotherapist, originally from Warrington in the UK and now living in Moraira on the beautiful
Costa Blanca in Spain.
I have been working therapeutically with clients in the UK and Costa Blanca for over 10 years. I have experience within private and corporate
counselling environments including occupational health, weight management and my own successful private practice. I am a member of
BACP ( British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy ) and abide to the ethical framework, I am also registered on the accredited voluntary register.
People I work with often feel that life is getting on top of them, they are not living the life they want - they have lost confidence,
often feeling blocked, afraid, frustrated, lonely - experiencing a range of issues in relation to themselves, others, their working lives
and the world. I can help with general life guidance through to in-depth psychotherapy.
I offer a safe, comfortable, confidential space for you to explore issues that are affecting you in your life. The relationship
we build is based on trust, genuineness and for me to explore your world through your thoughts and feelings. I am here to work
alongside you and to help you understand what has caused the anxiety or stress.
Over many years of clinical practice I have worked with individuals who are experiencing relationship difficulties with partners as well as children, low self esteem, depression, self harm, eating disorders, post traumatic stress symptoms, bereavement and loss, stress, anxiety, isolation, rape, sexual difficulties, career issues, weight management and loss of meaning in life.
I work with individual adult clients and couples. Couples counselling includes married couples, couples in a partnership or family members such as siblings.
Whatever difficulties you may face, I provide a sensitive, warm and supportive environment in which to explore past experiences and how these impact on the present. I believe that it is through a secure therapeutic relationship that an individual can gain insight and a deeper understanding of their feelings. In my experience many individuals are able to begin to find renewed trust in themselves and others, allowing them to make informed decisions and life choices and begin to live life in a way that is more satisfying and meaningful.
People typically choose to work with me because they like my empathic, energetic approach combined with pragmatism. I believe if you are coming to counselling at least a part of you, if not all of you, wants something to be different in your life. You may find that expressing your concerns, being listened to and understood is enough to help you move forward. You may also need to delve a little deeper to address self sabotaging patterns that prevent you from moving forward.
