Relationship Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist in Peterborough and Oundle

Hi, my name is Nikki Bruce and I am a very experienced Relate-trained Relationship Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist. Over the last twenty years I have provided thousands of hours of counselling and therapy with Peterborough Relate and undergone continuous and extensive professional learning and training.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I am on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

In my private practice, I provide effective and affordable relationship counselling and sex therapy to individuals and couples in the area of Peterborough and Oundle. Every one of my clients is assured strict client confidentiality, professional expertise and an understanding and empathetic ear.

Relationship Counselling

The health of our relationships is a vital factor in our overall health and happiness. Some would say you can’t have one without the other. But healthy relationships don’t happen automatically. Even great relationships, which at first seem so natural and effortless, can encounter problems.

Relationship counselling provides couples and individuals the opportunity to reflect and understand why they feel and act the way they do. People are often too involved in their relationship problems to understand them properly. Counselling holds up a mirror to the relationship, which can result in new understanding and finding new ways to move forward.

I have been counselling in the Peterborough and Oundle area for fifteen years and have helped hundreds of people understand themselves and their relationships better. I offer a safe, supportive and confidential place for us to explore your issues, understand them and make positive, long lasting changes.

For more details about how working with me can make positive changes to your relationships and life, please go to my Relationship Counselling page.

Psychosexual Therapy

During my time with Relate I chose to specialise in the couple’s sexual relationship. So as well as a couple counsellor I am a fully qualified Psychosexual Therapist. This is different to couple counselling and addresses specific problems people have in the bedroom, such as loss of desire, erectile problems or vaginismus.

Despite being very common, sexual problems are often difficult to talk about. They can cause feelings of embarrassment or shame which themselves impact on self-esteem and relationships. My sessions provide a safe place, free from judgement, where those difficult conversations can take place and where the problem can be treated.

I work with individuals and couples of all sexual orientations, gender identities and sexualities.

Sessions and Fees

My experience and training enable me to draw on a wide range of skills to tailor-make your counselling/therapy session into exactly what you want and need.

Counselling sessions and therapy sessions are open for both individuals and couples and last one hour.

In order to successfully make positive changes to your life it is essential that you feel happy, comfortable and safe with your counsellor. Therefore, at our first session we will get to know each other, discuss your issues and plan how best to proceed.

In order to help you take the brave first step to changing your life for the better, this first consultation session is FREE.

If you decide that we will continue working together, future sessions are £50 an hour.
