Welcome to Green Oak Therapies

Helping you reach your full potential


What is Green Oak Therapies?


Nicole Biggs

I am an experienced counsellor and hypnotherapist in Basingstoke, Hampshire. Having worked as a Family Solicitor for 20 years I have plenty of experience in dealing with complex emotions, issues and conflicts. I also work with Cruse (the national bereavement charity) as a Bereavement Volunteer, supporting people with loss and bereavement. 


How I work

I work in an integrative way, which means that I am able to use various approaches and models and adapt them to the individual needs of my clients. I provide a neutral, safe and supportive place for people to explore their issues,  heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths through the use of the person centred approach. I am then able to use whichever style best suits my client from CBT, NLP and hypnotherapy to psychodynamic and transactional analysis. 

I work face to face, by video conference, by telephone or by e-mail

  • I promise to work in an ethical way at all times.  I am a member of the National Society of Counsellors and National Society of Hypnotherapists
  • I promise to ensure your confidentiality and privacy at all times. 
  • I promise to work holistically in partnership with you according to your unique needs, choices and circumstances. 
  • I promise to be there for you , side by side, for every step of your journey. 
  • I promise to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. 

Some of our services



Hypnotherapy is a very effective tool used in therapy. It enables deep change and healing in clients by allowing them to access the subconscious directly. Hypnosis is a completely natural state that everyone enters each day when they act on 'automatic pilot'. During hypnotherapy the client is in full control, and is aware of everything that is being said. A very different thing to stage hypnosis, and not a pocket watch in sight.



Anxiety, Phobias and Panic

In our busy lives today many individuals experience symptoms associated with stress, anxiety, panic and phobias.  I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of dealing with these complex emotions providing you with strategies that you can use in your daily life to manage any future issues. 




Depression is one of the most unomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. I can help you recover motivation, perspective, and the joy that you once had in your life by working through current and past issues including trauma and conflict.

"Talking to Nicole made me feel at ease and I looked forward to seeing her each week. I felt no pressure, just like I was chatting to a friend …. She saved me!!" - LW

"Nicole made me realise it's OK to not be OK. Her warm caring approach made me feel totally at ease and able to discuss my issues and fears . I am now feeling much better, a far more confident person. I couldn't have done this without Nicole's support" - MJ

"Nicole  is one of the best counsellors I have had in my life. I do not think it is just because we 'jelled' but because she brings a compassion and professionalism to what she does that is unusual. She was able to respond to my need to treat some situations with a sense of humour, in my experience not everyone can do that. My experience with her left me uplifted and not only able to deal with the situation at the time, but also to apply it to problems that came later.' LT
