Vicky Mould Person-centred/humanistic counsellor , SO50
Welcome, I am Vicky, and thank you so much for coming to my profile. Seeking support from a Counsellor is a big step, and I hope the following information informs you about me and what I offer.
Counselling can be described as a form of 'looking after yourself' - it is not a sign of weakness or failure, and many people really benefit from the experience. It offers a safe and supportive relationship where you can explore what may be troubling you, and find your strengths and solutions for moving forward.
I am a registered Counsellor within Eastleigh and Southampton, and I offer Skype counselling if you live within the UK or abroad. Azalea Counselling is my private practice, and I can see you on an individual basis (from the age of 18), for couples or family counselling.
I am a bereavement Counsellor for Eastleigh and the surrounding areas, and an experienced therapist for depression, relationship issues, abuse, bi-polar disorder, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, lack of fulfilment or purpose in life, ME/CFS, low self-esteem and stress.
As a Person Centred Counsellor, I see my role as being alongside you in a meaningful way, such as offering you a safe and supportive relationship where you can be yourself, feel valued, accepted and truly heard - perhaps for the first time.
I value whatever you bring to counselling, and I will listen with genuine warmth and interest, and in a deeply understanding and non-judgemental way. I will always go at your pace, and I will support you in finding your own strengths and solutions for moving forward.
I can work in a creative way, and through the use of art materials, pictures, photos or writing. This can provide a helpful alternative to the 'talking therapy', and for expressing feelings and emotions.
I offer an introductory appointment in the first instance, and this appointment offers an opportunity for us to explore what has led you to seek counselling, what you hope to achieve, and decide if I am the right Counsellor for you.
I am in my counselling practice on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and if you would like to book an introductory appointment, please do get in touch. You can call my practice mobile on 07729 193629 or email me through this site.
