Meet Amy, our new counsellor

My name is Amy Nicholson, I am a qualified counsellor and emotional well-being therapist, and a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I am passionate about supporting children, young people and adults in all areas of their emotional well-being, and promoting and increasing emotional resilience. I have spent the past four years working in schools across Kent, providing 1:1 counselling, emotional well-being support, therapeutic interventions and group work to children and young people, and support and counselling to school staff. I have worked with, and alongside school staff and parents providing information, support and guidance in all aspects of mental and emotional health. I also work independently as a counsellor in private practice, with experience in the areas of anxiety and depression, bereavement and loss, attachment, low self-esteem, self- harm and other complex emotional, behavioural and educational special needs.

I am incredibly excited to be joining Wellesley House to continue to support the emotional well-being of pupils and staff. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to contact me on or contact the school office to speak with me. Confidentiality is paramount in my work, so be assured you can speak with me in confidence.
