Welcome, and thank you so much for coming to my profile. I'm Vicky, I am a bereavement Counsellor and Therapist, and Azalea Counselling is my private practice.
Counselling offers a safe and supportive relationship where you can explore experiences and feelings that may be troubling you. You will not be judged, or told what to do, yet you will be supported in finding your strengths and solutions for moving forward.
I offer counselling in Eastleigh and Southampton, and my counselling work includes bereavement and loss, disability, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, abuse, low self-esteem, stress, a lack of fulfilment or purpose in life. Whatever you bring to counselling is important, and I will work alongside you at your pace.
I will always strive to offer a welcoming and relaxed setting, free of outside pressures and expectations, and here you can be yourself, and explore experiences and feelings that may be troubling you. I am committed to offering a safe and supportive relationship where you can talk freely, and feel valued, accepted and truly heard.
As I trust that you are the expert in your own life, I will not tell you what to do, yet I will support you in making sense of things for yourself, and reaching your own answers and decisions. My aim is to enable you to make choices and changes that you want to make, and continue to strive towards a healthier and more fulfilling life.
Counselling can enable you to work through difficult life events that may have triggered your mental health issues, or that are impacting upon your mental health, find ways of coping or living with mental health issues, and develop confidence, self-esteem and your relationships.
My knowledge in Adult Mental Health spans over a decade, and includes depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder, and I am committed to working in a deeply understanding and non-judgemental way.
As an experienced bereavement Counsellor, I offer a safe and supportive relationship where you can explore personal loss, express your feelings and emotions, adjust to changes, and find new meaning in your life, and my aim is to enable you to move forward with a sense of confidence and inner-peace.
I can see you on an individual basis, as a couple or family, including the experience of baby loss, bereavement through sudden death and suicide.
Appointments are available in person or via Skype, and I offer an introductory appointment to explore counselling, what you hope to achieve, and establish if we could work well together.
I can usually see you within 1-3 weeks for this appointment. If you would like to arrange an appointment, please call my practice mobile or send an email via this profile.
