About me

Hello, I'm Vicki, I work with adults in my private practice 'Realign Counselling' based in West Byfleet, Surrey. I work with a wide range of issues but specialise in working with anxiety disorders.

Realign Counselling is my holistic and alternative approach based on 20+ years of research and experience of working with people from birth to old age.

The world today is full of uncertainty, confusion, fear and great personal challenge. More and more people are questioning aspects of themselves, their lives, relationships, beliefs and feelings that they have never questioned before and many are searching for more meaning to life and who they are. 

I have developed a system that takes you on a journey of self discovery, healing old wounds and traumas, and clearing away old habitual thinking and limiting beliefs. I guide you through simple steps and teach you various tools and techniques that help you feel more authentically you, more in control of who you are and how you live your life, more confident and happier in your self, with more clarity about where you are and how to navigate your way going forward through life's ups and downs.

I have a relaxed, warm and friendly conversational style, that will hopefully put you immediately at ease.

Background

I began my career in my early twenties as a Reiki and Karuna master healer but found it released a lot of blocked emotion which I was unsure of how to manage, so I began training in counselling in 1998 and have worked in the area of anxiety and depression ever since.

As a counsellor I have worked for various agencies, a private psychiatric in patient clinic and private practice. I have also worked in various other roles with children, teens, young adults and families in youth services, schools, early years settings and children's centres providing emotional and practical support.

I originally trained as a Person Centred counsellor but have completed many years of research and study in other humanistic approaches such as Gestalt, CBT, TA, as well as life coaching, mindfulness and meditation, and have been influenced by many psychologists, psychotherapists, educationalists and motivational speakers over the years. My practice has always maintained a holistic and perhaps alternative approach.

I am currently training as a natural physician specialising in herbal medicine, quantum botanicals, naturopathy, iridology and healing diets which I aim to integrate into my counselling practice once I qualify. 

I am married and have four children, two teenagers and two who are all grown up now. 

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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).

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.

Parking is available in my drive or on local roads. Access is all ground level however a gravel driveway may impede wheelchair access.
