Victoria Blake - MNCS (Accred), MBACP
Counselling is my passion and my purpose. It was after having therapy myself years ago, that I decided to train to help others. I believe that negative experiences can be harnessed and used to support those who are experiencing tough times. We all have them, and that's ok. It is making sure that we work through them that is so crucial to not only our present, but our future.
I work regularly with generalised anxiety disorder, panic, family issues, abuse, depression, sadness, trauma, relationship problems, anger and low self-esteem to name but a few.
I also work in the prison system with offenders and feel passionately about rehabilitation and reintegration. Nobody should be prevented from getting help. Your history does not need to dictate the rest of your life.
Each session with me is based around your own unique needs. For me, the aim is for you to feel entirely understood, supported and heard, no matter what the issue. It is then that we can explore each situation together and in a way which positively benefits your life and your sense of being.
If you're looking for affordable counselling in Torquay, Torbay and the surrounding areas, then please feel free to contact me via email or telephone.
Wishing you good mental health.
