Vicky Mould (MNCS Prof Accred), Counsellor in Eastleigh and Southampton
The Wells Place Centre
The Romney Centre
61 The Avenue
Welcome, and thank you so much for coming to my profile.
I am a registered Counsellor within Hampshire, and I offer a safe and supportive relationship where you can explore experiences and feelings that may be causing you distress or concern, and make choices and changes that feel right for you.
As a Person-Centred Counsellor, I seek to offer a welcoming and relaxed setting where you can be yourself, and talk freely about what's important to you. I am also committed to enabling you to feel valued, accepted, heard and understood - perhaps for the first time.
As I trust that you are the expert in your own life, I will not tell you what to do, yet I will support you in making sense of things for yourself, and reaching your own answers and decisions.
I work at a pace that feels comfortable for you, and I will be alongside you for as long as you need. My aim is to enable you to continue to strive towards a healthier and more fulfilling life.
I am a bereavement Counsellor for Eastleigh and the surrounding areas, and an experienced Therapist for relationship issues, low self-esteem, abuse, depression, anxiety, disability, stress, and a lack of fulfilment or purpose in life.
I offer short-term and long-term counselling, and I can see you on an individual basis, as a couple or family. I am registered with the National Counselling Society and I work within their Code of Ethics.
Appointments are available within Eastleigh, Southampton, or online via Skype, and I am happy to discuss the possibility of Skype counselling.
My Eastleigh practice is situated near the Swan Centre, provides good transport links from Southampton and Winchester, and offers disabled access and wheelchair-accessible counselling rooms.
I offer an introductory appointment to explore counselling and establish if we could work well together, and I can usually see you within 1-3 weeks for this appointment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my core counselling training in Southampton and I continue to enhance my counselling work through courses, workshops, articles and books.

In addition to the above, I have undertaken continued professional development in Bereavement Care, Child Psychology, Health, Mental Health (various), Mindfulness, Relationships, Safeguarding Children, Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
I am an Accredited Professional Registrant of the National Counselling Society and I work within their Code of Ethics. I am also subject to their complaints procedure currently in force. I regularly consult with a counselling Supervisor and I am fully insured for my work.
Professional counselling courses
In addition to my private practice, I am the founder and owner of Acorn Wells Counselling Courses, and we offer a Certificate and Diploma level counselling course within the Person-Centred Approach. You can visit http://www.acornwellscounsellingcourses.net/ for more information.
I have a background in the public and charity sector, which includes organisations such as the NHS, Local Authority, Together for Mental Wellbeing, Cruse Bereavement Care, Solent Mind and Women's Aid, and I bring a lot of this experience to my counselling work.
Because of my interest in people, personal development, and my own experience of counselling, I decided to pursue counselling as a profession and I have felt a deep connection to the Person-Centred Approach for over 18 years.
I qualified as a Counsellor after successfully completing the Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and I have worked independently since that time. I have an established counselling practice in Eastleigh and I have experience in working with couples, families and groups.
I developed a particular interest in bereavement whilst undertaking my counselling placement with Cruse Bereavement Care, and in 2012 I completed advanced level training in grief and bereavement counselling. I have also facilitated bereavement support groups for adults.
I have supported mental health charities through both paid and voluntary work and I currently facilitate Eastleigh Women’s Wellbeing Group on behalf of Rethink Mental Illness. I established this group in 2015 and it is very well-received by members.
My knowledge in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME) spans over a decade and I volunteered for a county-wide charity for 6 years. I have extensive knowledge of the physical, emotional and social effects of this condition, including the moderate and severe form of CFS/ME.
At the beginning of 2017 I established my own counselling training organisation, which offers a Certificate and Diploma level counselling course within the Person-Centred Approach. I am looking forward to tutoring courses alongside my private practice.
