About me

VICKY MONK MBACP (Accredited) UKRCP Registered Ind. Counsellor

Counselling for Adults- I am an Accredited  Counsellor/Psychotherapist with a great deal of experience working with Anger, bereavement, depression, anxiety, abuse (of all kinds), low self-esteem, panic attacks etc..

Counselling is a creative opportunity for personal growth, yet it often takes a  great deal of courage to make 'that one first step'  to explore inner 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. their lives.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
