Vikki Shepherd MBACP Dip/ AdvDip
Hi. I'm Vikki, an experienced qualified counsellor who has a passion for helping people improve their well-being.
I offer a warm, safe, caring and non judgmental space where together we can explore what’s going on for you. It can be quite a strange experience opening up to 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 integrative and psychodynamic (and some mindfulness). It’s a talking therapy, focused on you. I work by tailoring the counselling style around your needs.
Whether you are in crisis, or just feeling overwhelmed, together let’s help you unravel your internal thoughts and anxieties to help you get a better sense of self to tackle life.
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.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have 5 years of training on an accredited psychodynamic course and mainly work integratively from a relational perspective. This means tailoring your therapy to suit you. I also offer mindfulness techniques.
I am a member of the BACP. I work in private practice and for two centres where I am part of their assessment teams.
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.
