About me and my therapy practice
Everybody, sometimes, needs some support in overcoming life's challenges. A non-jugmental, supportive and confidential space can be really helpful.
My name is Victoria, I facilitate such a safe space, where we can, collaboratively, explore your own individual ways to acknowledge difficulties, express your feelings, and clarify your choices, values and meaning. So you can become more resourceful, and creative, improving your coping strategies, and thereby gaining a greater sense of freedom and lead a happier life.
As well as working in Private Practice, I have more than 5 years of experience working with creativity to facilitate mental wellbeing; for the NHS foundation trust: Oasis, and in the charity sector for Creative Support.
I have moover 10 years of experience supporting people to recover from addictive behaviours, one to one, in treatment centres and in prison.
I have also supported artists in their creativity since 1997, facilitating groups, and one to one. I hold an MA and BA in Fine Art and I am a practicing artist.
I currently work part time in an Employee Assistance Program: WPO, where I specialice in online and telephonic counselling.
I have a regular yoga practice, and I trained as yoga teacher, in Rishkesh, India in 2012.
I currently offer sessions Face 2 Face, Zoom, Skype or phone. Therapy is available short and long term for individuals and couples, £70 per session.
I also offer single session therapy for £150 per hour and a half.
