Vicky Parkin (Allen) MBACP / AMBICA
I have been working as a Counsellor since 2005. I am a member of BACP and an accredited member of BICA I specialise in infertility. I hold a Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. It is really important to me to provide you with a warm and welcoming environment - one that is confidential, non judgmental and one that feels safe, calm and relaxed. It is vital to ensure you choose the “right” counsellor for you and with this in mind your first session with me is very much one where you can decide if I am right for you - I want you to be sure you are comfortable with me before we travel what may sometimes be a difficult journey but one which will certainly be worthwhile. I am a person centered counsellor. I work either with an individual, a couple in couples counselling or with a family in family the. I offer Telephone, Skype appointments and face to face appoinments in Dover, Kent.
I work for hospitals in Kent, East Sussex and London
I also offer supervision work for counsellors
