Vicki Readings, MBACP
Sometimes we just need someone to talk to. Sometimes we just need a little extra support whether we are feeling stressed, anxious, depressed, whether there are problems in our relationships, at work or whether you just need that time to yourself, for yourself.
What is counselling?
Counselling is an opportunity to share, explore, understand and striving forward to help you thrive rather than survive.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I offer online counselling sessions with a non-judgemental space for you to be listened to and supported. Whether you are busy working, travelling and being in various locations on a regular basis, trying to balance life or would rather have sessions from the comfort of your own home, counselling is accessible and flexible. Choose from video call, email or instant messaging sessions.
What to expect from our counselling sessions:
I am able to listen and support you in our time together, working at a pace that is set by you and recognises your individual needs. All sessions are client led, bespoke to your needs. When we gain insights, we can then take actions which encourage positive change within our lives.
I have experience in working with, Anxiety, Panic attacks, Depression, bereavement, domestic violence, relationships issues, self-esteem and confidence. Alongside this, I have worked with military spouses and families to support daily life and challenges and have personal experience of this.
You can also book sessions, to help coach you to attain goals in business or life.
How long we work together depends on your individual requirements. I offer both short term and long-term counselling.
Qualifications & Experience:
Although I am predominantly trained in the Adlerian approach to counselling, I feel it is important to offer clients a range of methods as we are all individuals and have our own process experience. I have also studied Person Centred counselling and trained as a Points of You (phototherapy) practitioner and expert.
