    10 Questions with Nicole Jackson

    • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

    • Counselling was a late career change for me after getting married and having a family. I have always found people interesting and had a natural curiosity to find out what makes them tick. With my life experience, my empathy for people's well-being and this natural curiosity I have, counselling just seemed the right fit for me. I have not looked back!
    • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

    • I believe that everyone has the ability to grow and change. Approaches that challenge our way of thinking have shaped my practice- 'Behavior unchallenged is behavior accepted'. Counselling can identify unhealthy thinking/behaviours that keep us 'stuck'. Only then can we begin our journey to empowerment.
      I have grown as a person in positive/healthy ways due to continually challenging my own thoughts/beliefs and how they may be impacting on me and others around me.
    • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

    • Growth and change towards empowerment. The ability to confidently face the many challenges that life can throw at us. The knowledge that we always have choices. We cannot change the past or the people around us, we can however take control of the here and now.
    • What method/s do you use?

    • I strongly believe that developing the counsellor/client relationship (trust/acceptance/support) is paramount to any chance of positive change and healing. Once this is developed I incorporate various therapies that best suit you. These include therapies that may look into your childhood (Psychodynamic/narrative), search for solutions that have worked in the past or may not have been identified before (solution focused), identifying your strengths (Strength based), challenge your thought patterns (CBT), or looking at your attachments as a child that have an influence over your relationships now (Attachment theory).
    • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

    • This I believe is completely individual. You may require only a few sessions to work through your issues to start feeling better or it may take you a little longer if you have more complex issues that require some patience and time. Sometimes it is simply the act of reaching out that you makes you feel like progress is being made or it could be when you feel heard and validated in a non-judgmental way.


    • How has therapy made you a better person?

    • The process of becoming a counsellor has not only made me a better person, but also a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and work colleague. It gave me the opportunity to identify my triggers and how to regulate them and to make my peace with the past. My forever developing skill in self-reflection, helps me to be a better person today than I was yesterday.
    • What do you like most about being a therapist?

    • I feel very privileged to work closely with people who want a change in their relationship with themselves or others and I respect the courage and strength that this takes. Seeing my clients grow and change is very rewarding for me and is something you cannot explain but only feel.
    • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

    • Of course! Being a female, bad hair days are nearly every day! Though, on most days, with a little patience and time it can be rectified.
    • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

    • There are many issues such as over-consumption, global warming, and habitat destruction.
      Though I also find that social media is a significant problem within our society in regards to issues such as cyber bullying, self image, addiction to using it, and missing out on the good old fashioned face to face conversations.
    • Can you share the name of a book, film, song, event or work of art that inspires you?

    • I would have to say that nature inspires me. Can that be counted as Art? I go for long walks around the hills in my area feeling inspired by the views and beauty that continually changes with the season's and the time of day. It makes me feel happy to be alive!
