Vicky Ashman, Counsellor & Supervisor. Reg. MBACP (Accred).
I am a BACP accredited Humanistic/Existential Counsellor, offering flexible appointments to individuals age 16 upwards. I place importance on my commitment to fair and ethical practice and have appropriate insurance and supervision.
I work from a comfortable, private therapy room (my counselling cabin!)and offer flexible sessions, of up to an hour, with frequency negotiable.
I am warm and congruent in my approach, taking care to get to know you and develop a trusting, therapeutic relationship. I aim to support your personal growth and resilience, enabling you to develop new ways of coping with the anxieties that life presents us....helping you get back to being the you you want to be, living the life you want.
I qualified in 2006 and have a great deal of experience helping people work through their experiences with many of life's difficulties, such as depression,suicidal thoughts, loss of meaning, self harm (inc substance misuse),managing mental health, sexuality, seeking purpose and self worth. I have a great deal of experience and training in helping people to work through the effects of childhood trauma/abuse/sexual trauma. I am trained in ASIST Suicide Interventions and happy to offer short interventions for immediate support.
The first appointment can be a 30 minute introductory session to see if we can work together. Please feel free to email/ text to request more information. I also have a Facebook book with instant messenger.
