About me

My name is Victoria and I am a trained Counsellor and an accredited Interpersonal Therapist and I am experienced in working with clients with a wide range of mental health issues.

I offer a warm, safe space where there is no judgement to help you explore how you are feeling in order to help you gain a better understanding so you can move forward and make positive changes to improve your wellbeing. I work using an integrative approach meaning I can draw from many different models of counselling to create an individual approach to best suit your needs.

I am experienced in brief, short-term therapy but can also offer long term counselling if required. I offer a wide range of methods for delivering counselling so you can decide what best suits you. I can offer sessions as frequently as you need and I work with adults, young adults from the age of 16 years and the elderly.

Unfortunately, I do not provide couple's counselling but I can provide support on an individual basis relating to any difficulties that you may be having within a relationship using an informed Interpersonal Therapy approach. These may include conflict, affairs and separation as some examples.

I offer counselling in the following ways so you can choose the method that best suits you.

Face to Face

This is the more traditional method for delivering counselling. I am based in the Hartlepool area and can arrange face to face appointments lasting an hour. Disabled access is available which includes lifts, disables facilities and parking.

Telephone Counselling

For those that would rather not use the internet but would prefer not to or are unable to travel there is telephone counselling. I will call you at the appointment time we have booked and sessions last an hour.

Video Calling

This method allows you to speak face to face with a Counsellor in your own safe space. There is no need for you to travel and would suit those that have caring responsibilities for children or elderly relatives that they cannot leave. It would also suit those living abroad or in remote areas. All you require is a computer, laptop tablet or phone with a webcam and Skype or Zoom. We book an appointment time and I will then send you the link for you to click on at the agreed time. Sessions last an hour.

Instant Messaging

For those that lead busy lives or cannot travel or do not prefer face to face, counselling through instant messaging may be of benefit. We chose a mutual time and I will then invite you to chat using Google Hangouts. All you need is a Google email address to access Hangouts. Conversations can be saved for you to re-read when you need to reflect on what has been discussed. The chat session will last an hour.
