Vicki Badham - Experienced Counsellor & BACP Accredited
The Lane Centre
81A Lordship Lane
I work as a person-centred counsellor, which means that at the heart of what I do is my core belief that having a confidential space to talk, in which you feel that you are being genuinely listened to and can say what you really think without being judged, can really help you work through the issues that you are facing. It doesn’t sound very scientific or ground-breaking I know, but it really can work.
Whilst I specialise in bereavement, loss and endings, I am also very experienced in supporting my clients through a wide range of issues.
If you are unsure about counselling, I am currently offering non-obligatory introductory sessions at a discounted rate of £20.00. At this session, we will talk about what you would like to get out of sessions and if you decide to continue, we will then meet once a week for 50 minutes.
I practise in a spacious and light room on Lordship Lane in East Dulwich, which can be easily accessed by buses 40, 176, 185 and which is a 15 minute walk from East Dulwich station.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been practising as a counsellor for 10 years and for the past 6 of those, have been working on a voluntary basis for an organisation that specialises in bereavement and loss. As part of this work, I have supported my clients not only on bereavement and loss issues, but also on mental health, depression, self-esteem, addiction and abuse issues to name just a few. In short, whilst I have most experience in bereavement and loss, I also have experience of working with a multitude of other issues too.
I am a registered and accredited member of the BACP and have a Diploma and a Higher National Diploma in Counselling Skills.
In addition to my work at Southwark Bereavement Care (a part of Southwark Carers), I have also worked as a Young People’s Counsellor at Teens and Toddlers plus I volunteered for the Samaritans for 3 years.
I am committed to regular training and professional development through attending courses, webinars and by reading extensively on relevant topics.
