Vicky Mould (MNCS Acc) - Bereavement Counsellor and Therapist
The Wells Place Centre
The Romney Centre
61 The Avenue
Welcome, I am Vicky, and I am pleased you have decided to visit my profile. I hope the following information informs you about me and what I provide. If you do have any questions, or would like to explore the possibility of working together, I'd love to hear from you.
I have been a practising Counsellor in Eastleigh and Southampton since 2011. I also provide Skype counselling if this is better-suited to your personal circumstances. I can see you on an individual basis (from the age of 16), as a couple or family, and for short-term or open-ended counselling.
I provide a safe, respectful and non-judgemental environment where you can talk in an open and honest way and be truly heard - perhaps for the first time. Here you can explore experiences and feelings you may be struggling with, and find your strengths and solutions for moving forward.
I provide a supportive relationship where you can truly be yourself, away from judgement, criticism, outside pressures and expectations. I will listen to you with genuine warmth and interest, and in a deeply understanding and non-judgemental way.
I firmly believe that you are the expert in your own life, and I provide time and space for you to reach your own answers and decisions. My personal aim is to enable you to make choices and changes that you want to make, and continue to strive towards a healthier and more fulfilling life.
Areas of counselling I work with
I am a Humanistic Person-Centred Counsellor, and I may be the right Counsellor for you if you are seeking counselling in any of the following:
- To gain a deeper understanding of who you are, your values and personal aims.
- To cope and come to terms with bereavement and loss, and also grow through your experience.
- To address trauma through abuse.
- To manage depression, anxiety and stress.
- To address communication and relationship issues, and enhance your personal relationships.
- To increase your self-esteem, and develop a greater sense of trust in your decisions and abilities.
- To feel more confident in yourself.
An alternative to 'talking therapy'
Whilst I provide 'talking therapy', I am aware that talking about your feelings can be difficult. I offer the option of working creatively with art materials and objects, and this way of working can be helpful for accessing and exploring hidden and painful feelings.
Explore the possibility of working together
It is really important to find a Counsellor that you feel comfortable with, and I offer an initial consultation before deciding whether to commit to counselling. If you would like to explore the possibility of working together, please do get in touch.

I have experienced counselling myself, and I can honestly say that it enhanced my life. It has also given me a real sense of what it's like to be 'the client' in counselling. My experience of counselling is one of a few reasons why I decided to train as a Counsellor.
Azalea Counselling is my private practice, and I work within the National Counselling Society's Code of Ethics. I am an experienced Counsellor for bereavement and other kinds of loss, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, abuse, anxiety, depression and stress.
I have been a bereavement professional since 2008. I initially trained and volunteered with the charitable organisation Cruse Bereavement Care. I am the author of 'The Lighthouse' http://vicky-thelighthouse.net/ which specialises in online support and counselling for bereavement.
I volunteered for an ME charity for over 6 years, and my knowledge in this condition spans over a decade. In addition to my role as Counsellor, I am a Trainer in ME, and I currently provide training for Counsellors based within the UK.
I have trained and volunteered with Women's Aid and Mind. I have a longstanding interest in Adult Mental Health, and I have worked within the NHS, and for Together For Mental Wellbeing. I currently co-facilitate a local group for women with lived experience of mental health issues.
I have managed the Institute of Counselling Facebook group since 2013, and this group offers students the opportunity to enhance their learning experience. I have enjoyed being part of a friendly community, and group membership continues to grow.
