Vicky Mould (MNCS Prof Accred), Bereavement counsellor and therapist
The Wells Place Centre
Welcome, and thank you so much for coming to my profile. I hope the following information proves useful.
I have been a practising counsellor since 2011, and I have felt a deep connection to the person-centred approach (or person-centred therapy) for many years.
I gain a great deal from my work, and I am able to develop meaningful relationships with people from all walks of life.
I offer person-centred therapy in a range of life areas, including bereavement and loss, depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, disability, abuse, confidence and self-esteem issues.
As an experienced bereavement counsellor, I offer a safe, deeply understanding and non-judgemental relationship where you can explore personal loss, express your feelings and emotions, adjust to changes, and find new meaning in your life.
My knowledge in adult mental health spans over a decade, and includes bi-polar disorder, borderline personality disorder (BPD/EUPD) and schizophrenia.
I am a registered member of the National Counselling Society, and I work to their Code of Ethical Practice. I am also subject to their complaints procedure currently in force.
There are many reasons why people come for counselling, yet perhaps the most important one is that you feel you need it, or could benefit from it.
Counselling offers a safe and confidential relationship where you can explore feelings and experiences that may be troubling you, and find your strengths and solutions for moving forward.
Whatever you bring to counselling is important. You can work at your pace. You will not be judged, criticised, or told what to do.
When you come for counselling with me, you will be welcomed into a relaxed environment, which is free of any outside pressures and expectations.
As a person-centred counsellor, I trust that you are the expert in your life, so I will support you in making sense of things for yourself, and reaching your own answers and decisions.
My personal 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 work from private and comfortable rooms at the Wells Place Centre in Eastleigh, and I offer online counselling via Skype.
The Wells Place Centre is easily accessible from the M3 and M27, and facilities include step-free access to the building, a lift to the 1st and 2nd floor, and wheelchair-accessible counselling rooms.
I can see you on an individual basis, as a couple, or family (3 or 4 people in close relationships), and for short-term or long-term counselling.
I work on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and you can contact me to see what appointment times I have available.
I offer an introductory appointment before deciding whether to commit to counselling, and you can contact me on 07729 193629, via this profile, or my website.

I am first-aid trained, and I have undertaken continuing professional development in Bereavement Care, Child Psychology, Health, Mental Health (various), Mindfulness, Safeguarding Children, Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
I am a registered member (accredited professional registrant) of the National Counselling Society, and I work to their Code of Ethical Practice. I am also subject to their complaints procedure currently in force.
I maintain an established counselling practice (Azalea Counselling) within Eastleigh, and I have experience in working with adults and older adults, including couples and families.
I enjoy group work, and I have facilitated bereavement support groups for adults, and for the last 3 years, a group for women with lived experience of mental illness.
I have a background in the public and charity sector, and I bring a lot of this experience to my counselling work. I undertook my first voluntary role with Solent Mind, and have volunteered for various other charities.
I started my bereavement work in early 2008, initially as a bereavement support volunteer for Cruse Bereavement Care, and then bereavement services officer within Local Authority. In 2012, I completed advanced level training in grief and bereavement counselling.
I have sound knowledge in adult mental health, which I have acquired and developed through roles within Solent Mind, the NHS, Together for Mental Wellbeing, and Rethink Mental Illness.
I have extensive knowledge of the physical, emotional and social effects of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, and I volunteered for a county-wide CFS/ME charity for over 6 years.
Beyond the counselling room, I am a trainer and tutor, and I have developed counselling skills courses at both foundation and certificate level.
