Vicky Mould Person-centred/humanistic counsellor , SO50
Welcome, I am Vicky, and thank you so much for coming to my profile. I hope you find the information you need here, yet you are very welcome to call 07729 193629, or email me with any questions you may have.
I often describe counselling as a form of 'looking after yourself' - it is not a sign of weakness or failure, and many people really benefit from the experience. Counselling offers a safe and supportive relationship where you can explore life difficulties, fears and concerns, and find a way forward that feels right for you.
I am an accredited Counsellor in Eastleigh and Southampton, and cover the surrounding areas of Hampshire. I also provide Skype counselling for those within the UK and abroad. I have run my private practice (Azalea Counselling) since 2011, and I see individuals from the age of 18, and couples and families.
I am a bereavement Counsellor in Eastleigh, and an experienced Therapist for Abuse, Anxiety, Depression, Family issues, Lack of fulfilment or purpose in life, Loss, Low self-confidence, Low self-esteem, Physical and mental disabilities, Relationship issues and Stress.
My approach to counselling is Humanistic/Person Centred, and I am committed to relating to you in a genuine way, valuing and accepting you as another human being, and understanding your experiences and feelings from your perspective.
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.
It is really important to find a Counsellor that you feel comfortable with, and I offer an introductory appointment in the first instance. This appointment provides an opportunity to explore what has led you to seek counselling, what you hope to achieve, and decide if I am the right Counsellor for you.
My appointment fees range from £40 - £50, and I can offer a concessionary rate if finances are a concern for you. All appointments take place on an agreed day, and at an agreed time. If you would like to book an introductory appointment, please call 07729 193629, or email me through this site.

My working background
I am an experienced Therapist for a range of life areas, but my counselling specialisms are bereavement and loss, relationship issues, low self-esteem, physical and mental disabilities. I see individuals, couples and families on a short-term and long-term basis.
I enjoy group work, and I currently facilitate a local Wellbeing Group for women with lived experience of mental illness. This group has been running since 2015, and it is well-received by members.
I have a working background in the public and charity sector, including Local Authority, NHS, Local Government, Cruse Bereavement Care, Solent Mind and Southampton Women's Aid, and I bring a lot of this experience to my counselling work.
I have worked in the field of bereavement since 2008, and I have undertaken training in Bereavement Care, and further advanced training in Grief and Bereavement Counselling. My past roles included Bereavement Services Officer and Bereavement Support Volunteer.
I have an interest in Adult Mental Health, and I started working in this field in 2006. I have undertaken the roles of Support Time Recovery Worker, Support Worker and Appropriate Adult, and gained sound knowledge in Depression, Bi-polar disorder, Schizophrenia and Borderline personality disorder.
I was involved with a county-wide Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME (CFS/ME charity for over 6 years, and my knowledge in the condition spans over a decade. I have supported people with the moderate and severe form of the condition. I currently deliver an online CFS/ME course for fellow Counsellors based within the UK.
