Our Team

At Nightingale Counselling & Research all  of our Counsellors prioritize compassion, attunement, and relationship, and all of us have different training across modalities. It is our commitment to these specific forms of practice which sets us apart. 

Read about our Counsellors below and book a free initial 30 minute consultation with your Counsellor of choice.

We do not provide medicine, or diagnostic assessment here. At Nightingale we believe Counselling is an essential pillar of support and facilitation for those look at medical interventions for ADHD, and we are proud to have helped hundreds of people in 2022 towards this end. Counsellors are not: psychologists, psychiatrists, doctors, or pharmacists. For more information on the difference, please see our Page: What is Clinical Counselling.
