Vicky MouldPerson-centred/humanistic counsellor
Online counselling offers a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space where we can work together to gently explore how things are for you and the life choices or changes you may wish to make.
Perhaps you're feeling overwhelmed, confused or alone with your experience. Or maybe talking to friends or family hasn't proved helpful, doesn't feel possible or appropriate. Or you need more support.
Hello, I'm Vicky Mould, and I have been a mental health counsellor and bereavement counsellor since 2011. I often work with people impacted by stress, depression, anxiety or other mental health issues, relationship issues or changes, sexual or domestic abuse, loss and grief - including baby loss. If you're struggling, I hope you'll reach out to me.
Practising online counselling across Eastleigh, Winchester, Southampton and Fareham, I can work over the phone, via Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp. And online counselling can be just as effective as face-to-face counselling. You can contact me by email or my practice mobile 07729 193629.
In the counselling space, you will be welcome just as you are, and we can work at your pace. As a person-centred counsellor, my role is to help you feel part of a safe, trusting and supportive relationship.
My style of interacting is down to earth, accepting and attentive so you can talk freely and feel genuinely heard and understood. Together, we can work through thoughts, feelings, emotions and experiences that may be troubling you. I take a trauma-informed approach to my work, so I understand the importance of safety and trust.
Sometimes, it's hard to express feelings and emotions just through words or talk about difficult memories, so we can use creative mediums where this would help you. Tapping into your creativity can be freeing and therapeutic itself, yet ideas and insights can emerge through the process.
As I trust you're the expert on yourself, I don't offer advice or tell you what to do. But I can support and empower you to connect with your inner resources and move forward in a meaningful way.
I can offer a free consultation over the phone or online using Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp.
The consultation can help us establish if we could work well together. It's an opportunity to see if you feel comfortable talking to me and working online - if you haven't experienced online counselling before.
To book a free consultation or ask questions about counselling, you can call or text 07729 193629 or email me through this profile or my website.
