Bright-side well being was founded by Nicola Rowe. Nicola has spent over 13 years working successfully with young people in education as a counsellor and mentor.
The idea of Bright-side well being came about during this time as Nicola realised that many young people and their families were unable to access adequate support.
Nicola’s experience and contacts throughout the Borough have helped provide a platform to launch an independent support service for young people and their families which can be accessed right across Swindon and the surrounding area.
Nicola is a registered and fully accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists which means her practice has been judged competent and ethical by the National Association of UK Counsellors. She holds a current Enhanced DBS Certificate and is also a qualified Supervisor.
