My name is Vicky and I am an enthusiastic, person-centred Counsellor based in the Vale of Belvoir.
As a therapist I value individual difference. Every person is unique. I value integrity, honesty, finding your own path and standing out from the crowds. I value connections, trust and strength. I am not a fixer and I certainly don’t have all the answers, but I do strongly believe that people can be empowered to find their own answers. I may have a suggestion or two to help you on your way. I know that I am OK to sit with people in chaos, I can appreciate “stuckness” and I’m not afraid to travel with you.
My aim is to allow you the time, security and space to reflect on how your life is, be that in the here and now looking at day to day life, or as a bigger picture.
Are there things you would like to do differently but are unsure of how or where to start? Maybe you have identified a pattern of behaviour as history keeps repeating itself, but are unsure why this is happening?
Together we can explore, awareness is key to change and growth. I am not afraid to visit a dark place with you if you so choose to take me there. What I will do, with the depth and trust we would firstly establish in our relationship, is keep you safe whilst we visit.
Being a person-centred therapist I work in a client led environment, at a pace that’s comfortable and safe for you. I will not push you into areas that you don’t want to go to.
I appreciate how big a step it may feel to contact a counsellor and for this reason I offer a free initial phone consultation that can be arranged via phone, text or email, at a time suitable to us both to have an initial discussion about how it works, answer any questions you may have and hopefully alleviate any concerns or fears regarding taking the first step to getting help.
I am qualified and accredited and have full insurance. I have experience working with both adults and children, tailoring the therapy to the individuals needs.
