There are many reasons you may feel you need some counselling:

Your next step
It can feel daunting to start counselling. You, or your partner, might be wary of the benefits. Or you might be coming just to appease someone else.
That is why I would encourage you to email me in the first instance. We can then discuss your needs and how I can help you. After that I will invite you in for an initial meeting. This will be done in complete confidence.
If you would prefer to speak with me over the telephone, please send me an email, and I can arrange to call you back.
How I work with you
Sessions are tailored to your requirements. The number of sessions required are determined by your needs. This is all done in a non-judgemental, confidential and safe environment.
All clients can benefit from a better understanding of themselves through the counselling process. This empowers you to make the right decision for you and your relationships.

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.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Probably what’s most important to you is what my clients have said about me...
“We cannot speak too highly of her. She was sensitive to both our needs and helped us to unburden our marital problems in a sympathetic and insightful manner.”
“Wonderful! Highly skilled professional, non-judgemental and a skilled listener who intervened just enough to keep us talking.”
"Victoria has undoubtedly saved our marriage and rekindled our humour. Her approach is friendly, but at all times professional. She is unbiased and completely fair. She exudes a warmth, kindness, understanding and caring that makes the counselling process easier."
