About me and my therapy practice

Is this the year you want to stop holding your breath in your work, life, and relationships? 

Are you secretly wanting to colour outside the lines, be brave and take up space? Perhaps deep down you know there are reasons why you’re playing it small – if you only had the energy, you could change. Does the thought of breaking familiar patterns brings up feelings that are too big and overwhelming? 

Together we can find approaches where you’ll spend less time overthinking and on autopilot. Where you can become courageous and effective in the face of life’s challenges rather than spending time stuck in self-critical loops or isolation.

I'm passionate about helping you to befriend your feelings and begin to heal past hurts, so that you can stop being pushed around by others…and yourself. As a compassionate human, I love collaborating with unique thinkers, sensitive souls & anyone with big feelings. I draw from evidence based approaches for living authentically, including DBT, CFT and ACT.

If you’ve ever felt you’re “too much”, “too emotional”, “too sensitive” or “too weird", you've found the right place! Lets connect & begin to create your unique map for 2024. Visit my website or email me to book your free consultation, I look forward to meeting all of you. Warmly, Vicky (she/they)


Practice description

Bread and Roses is an affirmative practice and I am committed to working in an informed and sensitive way with clients from a range of backgrounds.

I could be the right therapist for you if:

You’re looking for a safe and warm space, free of judgement.

You value an affirmative approach – you are welcome here regardless of your gender, background, sexuality, age, size, culture, or relationship status.

You want to be empowered to work towards your goals, at a pace that feels right for you.

You’re looking to work with a ‘real’ person - I promise to be authentic and "human" with you.

You value a flexible approach – As an Integrative practitioner, I believe there is no one right way to help and your therapy should be as unique as you are.

You feel like you fall outside of the ‘norm’ but don’t want to waste time having to educate me about diversity and its challenges or feel worried about being judged. I believe your therapy should be as unique as you, and everyone is welcome. 

 I particularly focus on providing informed support for LGBTQIA+ clients, adult children of alcoholics and dysfunctional families ( sometimes known as A.C.A./A.C.O.A.) and anyone who feels they struggle to 'fit in'. 

I offer both short term therapy focusing on a single issue or concern, and longer term support for a more holistic approach.

My first session

I know myself how important it is to find the right "fit" when looking for a counsellor or therapist, and how much courage it can take to begin looking for support.  

To help I offer a 30 minute free consultation via Zoom or phone, to answer any questions you may have and explore what working together may look like.  This is a no-obligation session and I welcome enquiries and any questions you may have.

Once we have decided to work together, the first session is an opportunity for us to establish how this might look, with any goals, and preferences you may have in mind.  As part of this session I will ask some questions about what is happening for you at the moment and what is causing difficulties, as well as us agreeing a contract.  I am an Integrative Counsellor so I will listen to what you are hoping to achieve and work with you to suggest and identify any approaches which I believe would be most helpful.  

There will be plenty of time to ask any questions you may have. We will agree on the frequency of sessions and how we will check in as we work, so that you can feel safe, confident, and free to begin the journey of self discovery.

If you would like to explore this further with me, please do feel you can get in touch.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Warmly, Vicky
