Victoria Hill MBACP
There are times when the stresses and strains of life can seem overwhelming; when the thought of having to make yet another decision, or put on a brave face once again, can feel like the straw that might break the camel’s back.
I will offer you a non-judgemental, safe space to explore any issues, challenges, anxieties or general feelings of unhappiness or apathy that may be making you feel that you have lost your way, or even yourself. You will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of the problems you are facing and through doing so- develop new perspectives on life and capacities for growth and change; finding a way out of the fog, whilst developing a way of being, that will enable you to draw on your own inner resources for a clearer, happier future.
I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I am fully insured and work from a private practice in Newport Pagnell as well as having the opportunity to use a room at the West Bletchley Well Being and Counselling Service, should that be more convenient for you.

I am committed to continuing my professional development, which means that I regularly attend workshops and training in many different areas of mental health and well-being.
