Vicky Davies MBACP
Would you like your life to be better in some way?
Do you want to work through your fears & explore with your problems so you can be truly happy?
My name is Vicky Louise Davies, I have been a practising Counsellor for 12 years. After working voluntary as a Counsellor for five years with a company, I decided a few years ago to set up my own private practice where I provide face to face Counselling to individuals and couples who are experiencing problems or issues whether in the past or present. I work with each unique client at his/her pace and support them in whatever they wish to work through. I have often been told I am not a 'typical Counsellor' (which I have found to be a positive thing), I will not just sit and ask you "How do you feel about that?", I like be an active part in helping you.
I consider myself to be warm and caring and believe in providing a safe environment for individuals and couples to explore their feelings and emotions without being judged. I am an Integrative trained Counsellor (which basically means focusing on solutions), but I often use other techniques from different models to suit the clients individual needs. Confidentiality is paramount. There are 2 counselling premises available, details below. I work alongside the BACP Code Of Ethics to ensure good practice and I am fully insured and in regular supervision.
I know therapy can be very hard and scary to begin with, so I do empathise with clients as I know how tough it can be to open up to a stranger about personal issues. However, sometimes some people often find it easier talking to a stranger as they are not so closely involved in his/her life.
Ex Client C - "The counselling sessions I had with Vicky ended up meaning more to me than I thought they would. I had been to see different Counsellors before, but found it hard to connect with them, and eventually I resided myself to the belief that I was beyond help. Vicky made me feel safe and never betrayed my trust. She taught me that it was okay to feel whatever I was feeling and this gave me the courage to confront my fears. Counselling helped me to restore my faith in myself, at a time in my life when I didnt even realise how lost I was."
Whether you are looking for individual Counselling or Couples Counselling, please feel free to arrange a free informal meeting with me to see if I am the person to help you.
I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist & Reiki Therapist. These therapies can also help with a number of problems - physically, mentally & emotionally.
Any person wanting more information can contact me anytime via phone or email.
My main practice is in Offerton. I also have a private Counselling room in Bramhall if required.
