Hi, I'm Nicky Daly. Welcome to Stressworks!
I hope that, as you look through some of the information here on my site, you will get a clear flavour of who I am, how I work, the experience and expertise I can offer, my basic approach and philosophy, how and why I came to be doing this work and what I love about it, together with a little about the person you will meet in the room, how this process called therapy works, and what it will be like to work together.
But first, maybe I could say a little about Stressworks itself, and how I understand both the effects of difficult or traumatic experiences on us all, and how we might go about alleviating those effects and restoring ourselves to health.
I say 'us' and 'we' because there are times when every single one of us goes through difficult times, which throw us out of balance and feel plunged into confusion and out of control.
Therapy, and the need to talk things through, therefore, is a need we all have in common, and a facility which has the power to get us all back on track.
Psychotherapy / Counselling has often been called "The Talking Cure" and my many years of experience in this field have demonstrated the truth of that over and over again. The relief, insight and perspective that talking brings is life changing, and truly empowering.
I invite you to read more, and look forward to you getting in touch!
What happens when we're stressed...
Both in our personal lives, and also in our workplace, we frequently encounter stress and stressful situations.
Stress can be a positive force; we all need a certain amount of stress in order to function and be well. Often, though, its effects can be experienced as wholly negative.
What stress feels like...
The symptoms of stress itself can be extremely frightening too.
What causes stress...
Stress has many causes, and can present itself in many different ways. However, always at the heart of stress is a message that says something needs to change.

We work at your pace, with respect for your needs and wishes. Our clients are drawn both locally from the Shepshed, Loughborough and Leicester and the surrounding area, but also from much further afield.
Some clients travel two hours or more to see us, because they have found our approach and style helpful. For such clients, we can offer double sessions of slightly less frequency, to accommodate their travel and time constraints.
We also offer telephone sessions for those who have mobility or travel difficulties, or for whom distance makes travelling to see us prohibitive or impactical.
We offer Skype sessions worldwide, and draw clients from as far away as the States, India and Australia.
We have a large following across the world based on our writing, podcasts, magazine columns and social media presence.
~ STRESSWORKS ~ takes seriously the findings and recommendations of the latest cutting edge research into well-being and the balance between the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needed for optimum health.
