Nioma graduated with an MA in Psychology from University of Dundee. While studying for her degree she started voluntary work and she realised the power of listening and giving someone a safe space to work out solutions to their problems. This inspired her to do a counselling skills course at University of Abertay which she found incredibly enjoyable. Nioma continued studying at University of Abertay and graduated with a diploma in counselling after training in Pluralistic Counselling. After graduating Nioma spent time travelling in China and volunteered in Ghana. She not only found the experience enriching, it also gave her valuable insight and a deeper appreciation for different cultures.
Nioma has gained counselling experience in a range of settings including, Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre, University of Dundee and Insight Counselling service. Nioma’s approach to counselling is primarily focused on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Nioma loves to learn and has recently carried out further training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to continue developing her counselling practice. Nioma is experienced in working with a variety of issues and she works in a way which utilises and develops a student’s strength, resources and abilities. Nioma is an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy [BACP].
