Anxiety, Trauma, Burnout and Depression

About me

When your mind won’t settle and you’re overwhelmed by work, family or what's happening in the world, for example, you can experience persistent anxiety and/or depression. Occupational burnout can leave you depleted of physical and emotional energy and struggling to feel motivated. Relationships with loved ones, colleagues and even yourself can suffer and reaching out to friends or family with your concerns can be difficult for fear of upsetting or overburdening them. 

If this sounds familiar, counselling can help as it facilitates lifelong changes in perceptions, mental processes and neuropathways. It is your opportunity to be heard without judgement, offload your worries and challenge any unhealthy perceptions about yourself, other people and even the world in which we exist. 

I’m an experienced, integrative counsellor with a particular emphasis on existential psychology. Simply put, this means that I tailor the therapy I offer to the individual, paying particular attention to what it means to be the unique human being you are, with your distinct life experiences and how this fits in this modern and often challenging world. I provide flexible, face to face sessions in Chislehurst or UK-wide online, for adults experiencing the effects of generalised and social anxiety, abuse, trauma, occupational burnout and depression. I will support you with helpful strategies to manage and relieve your symptoms whilst we work together to uncover and address the cause.

So, whatever it is that brings you to therapy, please get in touch to arrange a complimentary consultation so we can see how I can be of help to you. All the best, Victoria.

Please note: I also offer couples counselling for those wanting to improve and heal their relationships. For more information on how I work with both couples and individuals, please visit my website and if you have any questions, just drop me a line.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Access to my premises is via a gravel path and a total of four steps. I'm afraid that I am unable to provide the use of a toilet and parking is on-street.
