Victoria Champion - Accredited Level 5 Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
Welcome and thank you for visiting my page. Below is a little about me and how I work.
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor offering therapy to individual clients aged 12+.
Talking to somebody about how you feel can be a very rewarding experience. Whatever it is, anxiety, depression, bereavement or grief, work related stress, relationship issues or just a general sense of malaise, we can talk through it all in a safe, empathic and non judgemental space.
At times we battle with an emotion such as anxiety, or a fear/phobia and we can't quite put our finger on why? We may be able to see that a pattern of some sort has occurred throughout our lives, mostly within our relationships, but again we don't understand why.
One of the therapies I am able to offer is EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique. This is a form of psychotherapeutic acupressure. By tapping on various pressure points in our body we are able to not only release the issue, but also understand what our core belief is in life, and therefore understand these patterns, this "unknown" anxiety or fear/phobia.
By forming a therapeutic relationship, based on absolute trust, we will work together at whatever pace you feel most comfortable with. I very much believe that everybody is an individual and the work we do will be unique to your own life events and circumstances.
I offer a free 15 - 20 min telephone chat, this helps us get to know each other a little prior to potentially setting up our first session. I am registered with Aviva, Aetna Global and Vitality Health Insurance. Please call or email me to set up this initial discussion. I look forward to hearing from you.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
