H. Victoria Jones
Depression and anxiety are very common, however it can feel completely isolating when we are experiencing them. I work by listening to you with genuine empathy and care in a non-judgemental manner. We work together by exploring your present experiences as well as your past in order to find ways to move forward in a positive and healthy way. I work with individuals experiencing depression and anxiety as well as stress and burn out and relationship difficulties. I have a particular interest in working with people who have experienced trauma, including single incident trauma, complex trauma and childhood trauma.
As well as working privately, I work for an NHS trust with individuals who have been critically ill. Having a sudden, life threatening accident or illness can leave you suffering with depression, heightened anxiety and even Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Many intensive care patients experience vivid hallucinations and dreams as well as lost time as a result of being sedated for days or even weeks. It can also be very hard to come to terms with having been so close to death. What is more, this can be traumatic for family members of the patient. I can work with you to deal with all these issues.

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.
