About me and my therapy practice
My name is Vicky and I am an experienced, qualified counsellor. I am a registered member of the BACP. I work professionally and ethically adhering to their code of practise. I work with individual adults, couples and young people helping them to make sense of their lives, life events, thoughts and emotions. I have spent time working in schools with young people and their parents helping them to deal with the difficulties and challenges life can bring, especially in this age of social media.
Counselling offers a unique and compassionate experience based on forming a relationship of trust and respect. I offer a safe and non-judgemental environment in which I can help facilitate you to reflect on events in your life which may be causing you to feel troubled in a variety of ways. I believe we are all the experts of our own lives and that every person has the capacity for change and personal growth. I value individual difference, honesty, integrity, finding your own path, standing out from the crowd, connection and relationship. I truly believe that people can be empowered to find their own answers. I know that I am not a fixer and that I don't have all the answers, but I do know that I will be alongside you in your journey, supporting you and helping you to make sense of who you are and how you feel about things. I know I am ok to sit with people in chaos and stuckness. I am not afraid to be afraid, nor enter with you into a dark place.
I can help you to develop the skills you need to gain clarity and confidence about the life you have, the one you want to live and the decisions that come with that and ultimately empower you to believe in yourself and live a life that is authentic to you.
