About me

Hi. I'm Vikki,  I BACP registered counsellor who has a passion for helping people improve their well-being. I completed a 5 year accredited training course and have several years of experience with clients. 

I offer a warm, safe, caring and non judgmental space where together we can explore what’s going on for you. It may feel strange for you to think about sharing your inner (and sometimes private) worries with a counsellor, however, counselling is proven to really help. And I care. If something is on your mind, I am here to listen.

My counselling style is psychodynamic, relational with some mindfulness. It’s a talking therapy, focused on you and thinking about if past experiences are impacting your current state of mind. 

Together we can help unravel your internal thoughts and anxieties to try to get a better understanding as to what is going on.   I work with many areas including thoughts about traumas, self esteem, work, family, being (or becoming) a parent, relationships, anger, health, anxiety, depression, confusion, overwhelming (or lack of) emotions, feeling sad, feeling stuck and many more. 

To get in touch, please send me an email or text and I can get back to you ASAP.

​I look forward to hearing from you!

Member organisations

BACP

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.

DBS check

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
