About me

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

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

When you realign with your true self you find the comfort, confidence and freedom to be YOU and live the life YOU want to live.

I am originally a Person Centred trained counsellor but my approach today blends various humanistic counselling approaches, along with my previous experience as a Reiki and Karuna healer to identify blocks and help you remove them.

I have developed a system that teaches you various tools and simple steps that help you get back in control of your life, feel happier, calmer with more confidence and clarity.

I can show you how to feel more in alignment with who you really and get your mojo back, or help you know what/where your mojo is! and quickly help you feel happier, calmer, more confident, in control and more resilient to cope with life's challenges.

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

Background

Vicki began her career in her early twenties as a Reiki and Karuna master healer but found it released a lot of blocked emotion which she was unsure of how to manage, so she began training in counselling in 1998 and has worked in the area of anxiety and depression for over twenty years.

Vicki has discovered that people are born resilient but our culture, parents and life experiences can often undermine that resilience. This can cause people to lose confidence in themselves and their ability to cope with challenges, often developing negative or dysfunctional coping mechanisms.

Vicki originally trained as a Person Centred counsellor but has been influenced by many psychologists, psychotherapists, educationalists and motivational speakers over the years. Her practice has a holistic and perhaps alternative approach.

As well as her private counselling practice, Vicki has also worked for over fifteen years with families, parents, children and young people, in early years settings, primary and secondary schools and youth services. As a result, Vicki discovered that some people can feel overwhelmed by the harshness of life, they learn to play safe, keep small, avoid taking risks and often override their intuitive impulses. This over time can lead to a loss of confidence in their ability to handle change, manage challenges and make difficult decisions.

When we try to be someone we are not, get lost in thoughts and beliefs, or try to keep ourselves small, we can eventually get lost which is the breading ground for anxiety, depression and overwhelm.

Vicki now works in private practice in West Byfleet, Surrey and lives with her husband and four children.

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.
