Vicky MouldPerson-centred/humanistic counsellor
Counselling may feel scary - especially if you're considering it for the first time, yet it can be a safe and supportive space where you can explore, reflect, and take steps towards a healthier and more fulfilling life.
Welcome, I'm Vicky, and I offer long and short-term counselling for adults of all ages. I have an established private practice and have worked with people experiencing bereavement, loss and grief, depression, anxiety and other mental health issues, the effects of domestic abuse, confidence issues, stress, low self-esteem, parenting and relationship issues.
Video, phone or face to face sessions are available, including an introductory session where we can connect with one another, talk a bit about counselling and establish if we could work well together.
How I can work with you
As a person-centred counsellor, I can be there for you in a genuinely caring, trusting and supportive way, and by creating and providing an environment where you feel safe, accepted, valued and understood.
I can work with you to explore thoughts, feelings and experiences that may be overwhelming, causing you stress or concern, gain new perspectives and awareness and build confidence and trust in the strengths and inner resources that you have.
Counselling can include the use of art and journaling - sometimes, it's hard to put thoughts and feelings into spoken words. Alternatively, you may prefer a creative counselling approach or wish to experiment with these mediums.
I am an experienced bereavement counsellor, and I can support you with recent or past bereavement, a loved one's life-limiting or terminal illness. I have received further training in the issues surrounding baby loss - miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, sudden infant death, and can work sensitively with you as a grieving parent or parents.
I have worked with many people affected by mental health issues - in counselling and previous support roles. I can support you in your struggles with depression, anxiety, self-harm, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia, perinatal or postnatal depression. I can also support you as partners or family members - perhaps you would like to explore the possibility of couples counselling.
I have personal insight and professional knowledge of domestic abuse, and I can support you in moving forward from past or childhood experience of domestic abuse, or if you would like some time and space to explore and reflect upon a current relationship.
My goal (and hope) in counselling is to enable you to make sense of your struggles, find a way through them and continue to be the best that you can be.
