Nicole Docherty - Counselling Psychologist Welcomes You

MA Counselling Psychology (NWU) (Cum Laude)


Get to Know Me

Hello! Thank you for coming to my page. 

As a counselling psychologist, I believe it is my job to help people navigate the obstacles on the journey of life. Therapy is for anyone who feels stuck, lost, misdirected, or even just those who are tired. Therapy can act as the GPS that redirects your life and gets you moving in the right direction again. One step at a time. My passion is working with, and helping people of all ages through a wide variety of difficulties. I look forward to our journey together.

Therapeutic sessions vary in their nature as they are based on your unique situation and needs. These sessions are available in person or online using Skype, Zoom or Google Meet.

General Scholastic Assessment

A scholastic assessment aims to determine and address factors that may be affecting academic performance (e.g. learning difficulties, ADHD, anxiety, etc.).


Subject Choice Counselling Assessment

The subject choice counselling process is a collaborative decision-making process, which aims to assist the learner in choosing their Grade 10 subjects, as well as preparing a back-up plan if necessary. This process can also be beneficial for learners seeking to change their current school subjects.

Career Counselling Assessment

The career counselling process is a collaborative decision-making process, which aims to assist the individual in determining tertiary education/career options, which are most likely to lead to career satisfaction and success. This process may also be beneficial for individuals wishing to make career changes.
