Hello, my name is Vicky. Thank you for visiting my website. I hope the following information provides an initial overview regarding myself and the service I offer.
I am an experienced integrative counsellor, which means that I draw on understanding from a number of therapeutic modalities and approaches enabling me to adapt my practice to the unique needs of each client.
I have worked in the charity sector for a number of years supporting individuals in different contexts with various presenting concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, loss and bereavement. I am experienced in working with trauma and the profound impact this can have on our psychological, emotional and physical wellbeing. When we carry unprocessed trauma this can become stuck and can impact upon our body, mind and behaviour. I work holistically with clients and in a safe environment we can work through and process together aspects of your experience which are impacting upon your life and wellbeing without overwhelming your body.
During different times and experiences we may feel unsure of where to turn and it is at these times when you may feel alone in your experiences, I offer a safe, welcoming, non-judgemental therapeutic space for you to share and explore those areas of life which may currently be causing you distress or concern. Through our work together we will work at a pace which feels safe and comfortable for you to facilitate insight and to support you to feel empowered to find the right way for you.
Finding the right counsellor can at first feel overwhelming and the first step to accessing counselling can at times feel the most difficult. You are welcome to contact me and together we can discuss and understand your needs at this time.
