Nova Nolan


Meet Nova

I am a humanistic integrative counsellor offering therapeutic counselling for people who feel they need support, guidance, a safe space to explore themselves or simply a need to be witnessed and heard. I’m a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and hold a Level 4 Diploma in therapeutic counselling from the CPTA (Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Academy).

I see my counselling practice as an extension of a lifelong interest in creative explorations of self; what does it mean to be 'you', to be alive in this moment, to exist in the world?

As a young woman, I explored identity through drama and theatre. The personas and characters I ‘tried on’, taught me a huge amount about what it is to be human, to feel and empathise with others. The creative arts allow a window into our humanity, into an inner and sometimes hidden self, which, in our busy adult lives, can escape our notice; we become disconnected from our vital selves.

Counselling is also a creative means, which permits us to explore and brings us into contact with this sometimes-neglected self. The therapeutic space can be a place of exploration, also transformation and safe refuge. This was true for me when I began my process of reconnection through therapy, after the birth of my first child. Becoming a parent was a transformative experience and I felt the need to learn myself anew.

To put oneself into context, feel the roots of your experience and create fertile ground for fresh growth is both a challenge and a gift. I feel privileged and excited to share this process with my clients.
