Services I Provide

My Services

It can be difficult to reach out for help to break patterns of behaviour. I can help you develop a deeper understanding of yourself and the situations you find yourself in. We can discover possible solutions to your problems, so you can make essential changes in your life. I specialise in 3 broad areas Asperger’s Syndrome and Neurodiversity, Trauma and PTSD, Relationship and Career Issues and a whole raft of other issues including:

Addiction, Alcohol Use, Alzheimer’s, Anxiety, Autism, Bereavement, Co-Dependency, Depression, Domestic Abuse, Domestic Violence, Gambling, Internet Addiction, Life Coaching, Men’s Issues, Narcissistic Personality (NPD), Self Esteem, Stress


Perhaps you have always felt different but found it difficult to articulate your experience, or perhaps you have suspected you are neurodivergent for some time. I have personal experience of a neurodivergent family and the challenges and blessings it brings. I have read widely on this topic and have worked with many clients with different presentations of autism. I am ready and able to help you start living your best life.

Trauma & PTSD

The journey to healing from trauma is unique for each individual and can take time. If you are experiencing trauma or PTSD, I can provide support, guidance and coping mechanisms to address the impact of trauma on mental health. Whether historical or more recent, trauma can have serious consequences in your life. Therapy can help you with strategies to put trauma in its place/into context? and move forward with your life.

Relationship Issues

I provide counselling for all types of relationships, professional and personal, to explore and address any challenges. This will help you forge constructive steps toward improving communication, resolving conflicts and strengthening the connection between individuals. Whether you want to explore your family dynamic or improve communication with a partner I can listen and help you to take steps to improve the relationships in your life.
About David Nicklin

About Passing Clouds Counselling & Psychotherapy

Before becoming a therapist, I was a teacher of English and Performing Arts for many years. I am a musician and songwriter and find these activities therapeutic. I believe that we create the therapy together and the more of ourselves we bring to it the more effective it will be.

If you are struggling in any area of your life or past experience, I will listen to your concerns and help you towards a deeper understanding of yourself and the situations you find yourself in. We will develop a strong therapeutic relationship and discover possible solutions to your problems, so you can make the necessary changes in your life.

In early sessions we build up our therapeutic alliance and as trust develops you will feel more able to share your concerns openly and at your own pace. Then we will consider what led you to this point in your life and how you might move forward.

I appreciate how hard it can be to reach out for help as I’ve been there myself. I’m very glad that I did.
