Vicki Morganti MA. BA Hons. Reg. MBACP Counsellor for Adults & Adolescents
I love counselling and began my counselling career in the late 90's. 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 focuses on enabling individuals to realign with their 'true' self.
It’s a powerful, challenging and yet empowering approach which successfully brings about positive and lasting change for many adults and adolescents helping to shift relationships, family dynamics and lifestyle
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 and realign you with your true self. pier.
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. This is what my previous clients have said:
'That yours has been the most positive, helpful and proactive therapy that I have ever had and has helped me enormously doesn't quite cover it'
'You've helped me more in one session than I've got from months of counselling elsewhere... it's like your psychic!'
'I feel so much clearer about who I am and what I want, thank you, thank you, thank you.'

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, teenage depression, relationships, lack of confidence, anxiety and depression.
What to expect
I offer a warm, relaxed, comfortable, non judgemental and welcoming space. Sessions last one hour, are generally weekly and on average last for around 6-8 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.
