Vicky Monk MBACP (Accred)
VICKY MONK MBACP (Accredited) UKRCP Registered Ind. Counsellor
Counselling for adults and children - I am an experienced Accredited Counsellor with a great deal of experience working in Skegness and surrounding areas. I work with anger, bereavement, depression, anxiety, abuse (of all kinds), low self-esteem, panic attacks, child related issues and so on - please refer to the list below for more areas.
When working with children and young people I use artwork and 'play' materials helping the client to feel relaxed, therefore enabling thoughts and feelings to surface. Counselling is a creative opportunity for personal growth yet it often takes a lot of courage to reveal thoughts and feelings.
I have a calm approach - person-centred being the 'core' of my counselling - also working with other theoretical approaches, dependent on what the client presents with. By using the necessary approach for each individual client - each client being unique - hopefully, during the counselling process the client is able to work through their issues, enabling them to move forward with their lives.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
