Hi, I am Victoria.
Many of us need counselling at some point in our lives, whether that be because of a particular event, because we are struggling with life’s pressures or because we may feel as though we have lost our way. I am here so we can work through these things together.
Counselling is a personal and important journey and I would like to be able to support you to find your way, to become more self aware and to make those changes you hope to make.
I am an approachable and naturally supportive person. I provide counselling and wellbeing support via a variety of mediums - face to face, telephone, video call and online. I believe it’s important that you feel comfortable in accessing support in whichever method suits you and your circumstances.
I have a Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and member of the BACP. I am DBS checked and I work with both adults and young people (11-18 years). I work in an integrative way, which means that I cater my sessions to suit the needs of each person.
I have many years experience of providing emotional support to adults and young people. I have provided emotional support in a variety of roles and settings including face to face drop in centres, via a helpline and also via an online counselling platform.

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.
National Counselling Society (NCS)
The National Counselling Society
This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.
In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Areas of counselling I deal with
£50.00 per session
Free initial in-person, telephone or online session
- Free initial half an hour assessment session.
- Adults - £50 per session
- Young people - £45 per session
- Sessions last for 50 minutes and are usually held once a week.
When I work
We can discuss availability during our initial assessment session, so we can make sure it's a time that works well for you.
Where to start
If you would like to find out more about what to expect from a counselling session you can either call me or send me a message. We can have a free half an hour chat to talk about what you feel you need, what you would like to achieve and how I work as a Counsellor.
If after our initial chat you are happy to continue, we can then set up a second session where I will find out some more about your situation and what you'd like support with. Sessions are usually on a weekly basis however we can explore what works for you and your budget as well as your time.
