The service

The therapeutic approach

We believe that patient choice is key in determining the care received, recognising that every person is unique and has different needs and preferences.   The initial consultation will assess this, giving you recommendations on the best approach to support your mental health need.    This may include CBH, Mindfulness or a combination of both. 

Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT) is widely recognized as an effective therapeutic approach for various mental health conditions. Its success lies in its ability to help identify and modify negative thought patterns and behaviors, leading to improved coping strategies and long-lasting positive change.

Hypnotherapy is a complementary approach that can enhance Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) by facilitating a heightened state of relaxation and receptivity to change. This supports the development of healthier coping mechanisms, reduced anxiety and improved mood.

Mindfulness has been shown to have therapeutic benefits for a range of issues including, anxiety, depression, insomnia and pain management.

This service is provided by Nicole Magnier, a Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist and Mindfulness teacher specialising in stress and anxiety. This supplements our in-house mental health service, offering patients additional resources and support to help them achieve better mental health and well-being.

“Nicole is the most wonderful, kind professional therapist that you will ever have. Not only is she simply fantastic her therapy actually works like nothing I’ve ever tried before. It completely changes your life and helps you be the best you. Everyone needs a Nicole in their life”.

“Nicole has been amazing, helping me to think differiently. She has helped me to be more open, and see that it is okay to be vulnerable, okay to not be okay, okay to tell people how you are, okay to be yourself. I’m so grateful.”

Patient with long term condition, West 10 GP’s, Golbourne Medical.

“When I came to the NHS for help I was really struggling. My mental state was broken and fragile. I had no clarity and couldn’t navigate myself out of my state of anxiousness, panic and depression. I had had therapy in the past but it was the traditional kind so CBT was a new experience and turns out, EXACTLY what I needed. With Nicole I was able to ground myself, find clarity and start navigating my life into a more positive direction. Through my sessions I learnt the tools to cope, and understand what the mind does and how to push through the negative haze. So much so that my life has completely turned around. All of what I experienced feels like a dream, memories that belong to another version of myself. My mental health is at its best and I’m astounded with myself – the way in which I filter and manage negative situations and the shift in mindset that has had an overwhelmingly positive impact on my life. I’ve started my journey of emotional maturity and before Nicole I wouldn’t have understood the importance of it. I can’t thank Nicole enough. She went above and beyond to help me and for that I am forever indebted to her.”

“Nicole has worked with me to overcome lots of difficulties that have prevented me from being my truest self. From being in depression and crippling anxiety for many years, I have had my fair share of therapists, medication and self-help books and none of this combined has helped me to the extent that Nicole has.”

Patient, West 10 GPs, Golborne Medical

After suffering from panic and anxiety attacks as a consequence of shielding during the pandemic I was referred for therapy with Nicole. Being something of a cynic and having never previously needed therapy I was immediately put at ease by Nicole and came to trust her. I found our sessions extremely beneficial and relaxing. She was very easy to converse with and gave me a number of tools to use to deal with the anxiety and related issues which I believe may have led to my becoming agoraphobic had I not received counselling and hypnotherapy. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

“Having sessions with Nicole has been an experience that has helped me massively with something that has challenged me for many years of my life. Nicole is so understanding and easy to talk to and I always felt comfortable opening up to her from the first session. I learned so much about my anxiety that has given me the confidence that I can get better and change my habits when I always thought I could never change. After a few sessions had multiple methods to calm myself including breathing techniques and evidence for and against if I started to panic and I will continue to use these in future. Also I know that I can always reach out to her if I have an issue in the future. Overall I have learned so much from Nicole and have the tools I need to continue working on my anxiety and having more confidence in myself! I would recommend her to anyone and I am so happy I have met her.”

“I want to thank Nicole for all the amazing help she has given me for my sleep problems. Not only do I now have lots of really good strategies which are already making improvements in my sleep, you have patiently listened to my ramblings and been so caring and kind. It has improved my mental health a great deal. Just being able to talk to you and hear your comforting, supportive and insightful comments has meant a great deal to me and I can’t thank you enough.”

“I give Nicole 10 out of 10 in any category. She is amazing and deserve to be celebrated. I have been eagerly waiting to our appointments in the darkest days. Do what you have to to elevate this beautiful human.”

I have been buoyed by Nicole’s support in recent months as I have endured a challenging period for my mental health with many complex stress triggers. Nicole has been endlessly positive and generous in her approach to me, and has left me feeling reassured on countless occasions which is not an easy feat in my recent state. Nicole is a font of practical techniques to deal with stress and anxiety on a day to day level. I have no hesitation in commending the services she is able to offer and the value they bring to the practice and to me.

Patient, West 10 GP’s, Golborne Medical

“I want to say thank you for being so incredibly generous with your time, your skill, your experience and yourself, you happened at a time when I needed to make so many life changing decisions, and you had your sack full of reflective views, compassionate challenges, amazing tools and with those you enabled me to have the space to think through my actions and decisions. You were absolutely brilliant in helping me think through my career decisions and options and in giving me the tools to manage the pressure and avoid burnout during what was a relentlessly busy time working in the NHS during COVID lockdown.”

Patient, West 10 GP’s, Golborne Medical

“I had a few sessions of counselling at the Health and and Wellbeing centre up the road just before Nicole, but she was so much better. Both it was better having it at my GP surgery and Nicole herself is so good. She always smiles and is so warm. She listens when you talk, and the things she suggests are made by her just for you so that you can do them and will do them.”

Patient, West 10 GP’s, Golborne Medical

” I want to thank Nicole for providing me with the tools to help me manage my anxiety and binge eating. It has been an amazing experience and has had a positive impact on my life. When hypnotherapy was proposed to me by my GP I was feeling a little unsure and anxious, after completing my therapy sessions I cannot recommend it enough, I think it fantastic that this service is available in my GP surgery. It should be available across all surgeries across the country, with the effects of Grenfell and then the pandemic mental health is on the rise and having a therapist at arm’s length would make significant difference to our community”.

Patient, West 10 GP’s, Golborne Medical

I have been referred to Nicole via the GP.  I was facing a difficult moment where I felt stuck with my life, hopeless, overwhelmed by negative emotions and I really needed some help.  Right after the first session with Nicole I felt extremely relieved, as I knew there was someone there to support me in a professional manner.  She immediately identified the main issues I had, including recognising and processing my emotions.  Thanks to her support, I realised why I needed those emotions and changed my behaviour in specific circumstances, which gave immediate results in terms of making me feel better and more content, as I was finally able make some important decisions in my life. 
The hypnosis sessions we had were also essential as I had the chance – in a phase of my life where I could only see negativity – to recognise my value, strengths and achievements and to give myself some self-love and gratitude.  Thanks to Nicole’s support and help, I now feel much better and positive, and I feel I have the tools to work with my negative emotions.

I am also extremely grateful to the GP practice that referred me to Nicole and that offers this type of therapy to their patients, this service is truly invaluable for someone struggling with their mental health.”
