Vicki Morganti MA. BA Hons. Reg. MBACP Counsellor for Adults & Adolescents
I love counselling and began my counselling career in the late 1990's after practising as a Reiki healer. My counselling approach today has a strong Person Centred core but has been influenced by many great psychologists, psychotherapists, educationalists and motivational speakers over the years as well as solution focussed coaching, emotion-focussed therapy, CBT and Mindfulness techniques. This inspired me to create my own approach called 'Realign Counselling" which is a holistic approach that focuses on enabling individuals to realign with their 'true' self and combines counselling and coaching techniques.
It’s a powerful, challenging and yet empowering approach which has successfully brought about positive and lasting change for many adults and adolescents, helping to shift relationships, family dynamics, lifestyles and greatly improve wellbeing.
How it works
Realign Counselling is a talking therapy, I listen and intuitively read what you bring to the session and ask specific questions that help clarify my understanding. Through our journey together I help you to realign with your true self and feel more confident, positive, empowered, in control, have clarity, feel happier and resilient to life's challenges.

I began my counselling career nearly 20 years ago after originally working as a Reiki and Karuna practitioner. I gained a diploma and a BA Hons degree in Person Centred Counselling and initially worked with adults via GP and Hospital referrals within agencies and private psychiatric clinics, with people experiencing high levels of anxiety and depression.
In an effort to understand how problems develop in childhood and shape us as adults I began an MA in Play Therapy and developed a passion for working therapeutically with children. I later transferred onto and gained an MA in Early Childhood Studies, specialising in infant and child wellbeing and parenting. During my studies I also worked in various roles over 15 years in education, youth services and early years settings, most recently as the manager of a busy Sure Start Children's Centre supporting children, parents and families. I now work in private practice as a counsellor with adults and adolescents.
I have a particular interest in helping people out of feeling stuck, or lacking life direction, empowering women, the trials of motherhood and parenting, relationships, teenage depression, relationships, lack of confidence, anxiety and depression, grief and loss.
What to expect
I offer a warm, relaxed, comfortable, non judgemental and welcoming space. Sessions last approx one hour, are generally weekly and on average last for around 8-10 sessions but some people need longer. Everyone is different, our work together is a journey and will unfold in its own way. You can choose to have weekly, fortnightly or monthly sessions if you prefer, however I would recommend weekly for the first few sessions.
