Vicky Mould (MNCS Prof Accred) Bereavement counsellor and therapist
The Wells Place Centre
Hi, I’m Vicky, and thank you so much for coming to my profile.
I have been interested in counselling since early adulthood, and this interest, along with my abilities and life experiences, led me to train as a counsellor.
My core counselling training included an introduction to counselling, a 2 year Certificate course in counselling, and a 2 year Diploma course in counselling.
I established Azalea Counselling in 2011, and I am a bereavement counsellor and therapist for individuals, couples and families. I can see you in person, or via Skype (Skypotherapy), and for long-term or short-term counselling.
Counselling may benefit you, if you would like to change the way things are for you - perhaps how you feel, how you are in relationships, or how you respond to situations or stress, and/or adjust and come to terms with life changes and loss.
As a person-centred counsellor, I am committed to offering a safe and supportive relationship where you can be yourself, talk freely, and feel valued, accepted, and truly heard – perhaps for the first time.
I fully trust that you are the expert in your life, so I will not offer advice, or 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.
As a registered member of the National Counselling Society, I work within their Code of Ethical Practice, and regularly consult with a counselling supervisor.
People often come to me for counselling in the following life areas: bereavement and loss, stress, relationship issues, communication difficulties, disability, abuse, anxiety and depression, confidence and self-esteem issues.
I hold an advanced level Certificate in grief and bereavement counselling, and my working background includes the charitable organisation Cruse Bereavement Care, and bereavement services within Local Authority.
I have sound knowledge in adult mental health, which I have acquired and developed through roles within Solent Mind, the NHS, and Together for Mental Wellbeing.
Couples counselling and family therapy
Couples counselling is most effective when both of you wish to engage in it, regardless of what the outcome might be. Sometimes, individual counselling is appropriate beforehand, or instead of couples work, and this may be recommended at a first appointment.
As a couples counsellor, I can facilitate the communication between you, so you can hear and understand each other, and explore helpful ways of moving forward - either together, or separately.
I also work with families, and family therapy can be useful for all ages, and a wide range of circumstances. Family sessions usually consist of 3 or 4 people in close relationships.
I may be the right counsellor for you, if you are seeking couples counselling or family therapy for any of the following:
- Communication and relationship difficulties
- Baby loss and bereavement
- A diagnosis of cancer in the family
- Adult mental health issues
- Issues relating to separation and divorce
- Illness and disability in the family.
You can contact me for a no-obligation consultation
It is important to find a counsellor that is a 'good fit' for you, and I offer a no-obligation consultation in the first instance.
This appointment provides an opportunity to explore counselling, ask any questions you may have, 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 a consultation, please call or text 07729 193629, or send an email.
