CBT Therapist: Milena Nikolova

Milena NicolovaI am a CBT Therapist and have worked for 5 years in the Somerset area. I also have over 10 years of experience working therapeutically in the NHS. I have worked in a variety of settings including the community and voluntary sector, inpatient secondary care, forensic services and Social Services. I am accredited with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and I am a member of British Psychological Society (BPS).

My therapeutic style is both approachable and professional. I believe that it is important to truly understand the client’s point of view and to validate their difficulties. In treatment we work together and I encourage and support you in improving your wellbeing through reflection and self-discovery.

A necessary first step in treatment is to gain a good understanding of ‘what it feel’s like…’ and identify your goals in treatment. You will also find that I am flexible at adapting my style and therapeutic interventions to your needs.  My personality is warm, open-minded and curious. I am naturally motivated in supporting my clients and together we create a safe, confidential and nurturing environment.
