Hello, my name is Vicky. I am an experienced integrative counsellor offering a holistic approach to mental health and wellbeing. I practice from an integrative model of counselling meaning that I draw on understanding from numerous therapeutic modalities and approaches enabling me to adapt my practice to the unique needs of each client.
At times, it may feel difficult to know where to turn and you may at times feel alone in your experiences. I offer a safe, non-judgemental, empathic therapeutic space where you can share your experiences, feel heard and empowered to together explore and work to make sense of those areas of life which may be currently causing you pain or distress. Through our sessions we will work together at a pace which feels safe and comfortable for you to facilitate insight and to support you to feel empowered to find the right way for you.
Finding the right counsellor can at first feel overwhelming and the first step to accessing counselling can feel the most difficult. You are welcome to contact me via telephone or email and together we can discuss and understand your needs. You should never feel rushed or pressured into your decision and it is important that you find a counsellor who feels right for you. I offer a free initial telephone consultation during which time we can discuss how we can best work together and to give you a better idea of whether I’m the right counsellor for you.
*Please note, I am currently offering Zoom or telephone sessions during the Covid-19 pandemic.*

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
