Vicky Mould (MNCS Prof Accred), Counsellor in Eastleigh and Southampton
The Wells Place Centre
The Romney Centre
61 The Avenue
Welcome, and thank you so much for coming to my profile. If you are considering counselling for the first time, or coming back to it, I hope the following information proves useful.
As a Person-Centred Therapist, I am committed to offering a safe and supportive relationship where you can be yourself, and feel valued, accepted and truly heard.
I offer a welcoming and relaxed setting where you can explore experiences and feelings that may be causing you distress or concern, and find your strengths and solutions for moving forward.
I trust that you are the expert in your own life, so 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.
I am a bereavement Counsellor for Eastleigh and the surrounding areas, and an experienced Therapist for relationship issues, low self-esteem, abuse, depression, anxiety, disability, stress, and a lack of fulfilment or purpose in life.
Counselling may be short-term (6-10 sessions) or long-term, and I can see you on an individual basis, as a couple or family. Appointments are available in person or via Skype, and I am happy to discuss the possibility of Skype counselling.
I offer an introductory appointment to explore counselling, and establish if we could work well together, and I can usually see you within 1-3 weeks for this appointment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my core counselling training in Southampton, and I continue to enhance my counselling work through courses, workshops, articles and books.
I hold the following qualifications:
- Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Dip.PC) (Distinction).
- Certificate of Higher Education in Counselling (Cert.HE).
- Certificate in Counselling (Level 1).
- Certificate in Couple and Family Counselling (Level 4).
- Certificate in Crisis Counselling.
- Certificate in Grief and Bereavement Counselling.
- Certificate in Humanistic Counselling (Cert.CNS).
In addition to the above, I have undertaken continued professional development in Bereavement Care, Child Psychology, Health, Mental Health (various), Mindfulness, Relationships, Safeguarding Children, Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
I am an Accredited Professional Registrant of the National Counselling Society, and I work within their Code of Ethical Practice. I am also subject to their complaints procedure currently in force.
Professional counselling courses
In addition to my private practice, I am the founder and owner of Acorn Wells Counselling Courses, and we offer a Certificate and Diploma level counselling course within the Person-Centred Approach. You can visit http://www.acornwellscounsellingcourses.net/ for more information.
I have a background in the public and charity sector, which includes organisations such as the NHS, Local Authority, Together for Mental Wellbeing, Cruse Bereavement Care, Solent Mind and Women's Aid, and I bring a lot of this experience to my counselling work.
I qualified as a Counsellor after successfully completing the Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, and I have worked independently since that time. I have an established counselling practice in Eastleigh, and I have experience in working with couples, families and groups.
I developed a particular interest in bereavement whilst undertaking my counselling placement with Cruse Bereavement Care, and I have completed advanced level training in grief and bereavement counselling. I have also facilitated bereavement support groups.
I have supported mental health charities through both paid and voluntary work, and I currently facilitate Eastleigh Women’s Wellbeing Group on behalf of Rethink Mental Illness. I established this group in 2015, and it is very well-received by members.
My knowledge in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME) spans over a decade, and I volunteered for a county-wide charity for 6 years. I have extensive knowledge of the physical, emotional and social effects of this condition, including the moderate and severe form of CFS/ME.
At the beginning of 2017, I established my own counselling training organisation, which offers a Certificate and Diploma level counselling course within the Person-Centred Approach.
