About Me


Nicola Croote MBACP (accred.)

I started my career in social care in 1996 in a children’s home specialising in working therapeutically with children aged 5-12 who had suffered from abuse and neglect. Following on from this I moved to a family centre working with families who were having difficulties with parenting. During this time I completed my counselling training and entered the addictions field where I worked with people suffering from drug and alcohol addictions. In 2005 I set up my private practice in West Norwood, London SE27.  I also work for Mind in Brixton SW9 as a clinical supervisor where I have practiced since 2016.

I am a BACP accredited and UKRCP registered counsellor/psychotherapist and a qualified Life Coach. I am a qualified clinical supervisor having completed my Diploma in Supervision with the Gestalt Centre, London in 2016.
