Vicky Mould Person-centred/humanistic counsellor , SO50
Hello, and welcome to my profile.
Counselling can feel scary - especially if you're considering it for the first time, yet many people access this kind of support and benefit from the experience. Counselling offers a safe space to work through thoughts, feelings and experiences that may be overwhelming, causing you stress or concern.
I am a registered, qualified counsellor, and I welcome and work with adults of all ages. I work from my practice in Eastleigh in Hampshire or online through Vsee or Zoom. I can assist with life challenges such as bereavement, loss and grief, depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues, domestic abuse, pregnancy and parenting issues, stress, low self-esteem and relationship issues.
How I work
Sessions are confidential, and take place weekly or fortnightly, on a long or short-term basis. I work in a caring and nurturing way, and I am easy to talk to, and you can be yourself with me. As a person-centred counsellor, I can listen attentively to how things are for you, so you feel heard and understood, and can also get a fresh perspective on things and develop your awareness. I can help you build confidence and trust in the strengths and inner resources that you have, so you feel free to move forward in a way that you wish.
Counselling sessions can include the use of art and other mediums - sometimes, it's hard to put thoughts and feelings into words. Alternatively, you may prefer a creative counselling approach or wish to try out the different art mediums.
I will work at your pace, and my goal is to help you realise your true potential, find a way through your difficulties and continue to be the best that you can be.
I have extensive experience in bereavement counselling, and I'm here for you if you're struggling with the death of a friend, family member, partner or child. I have received specialist training in the issues surrounding baby loss - miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, sudden infant death, and I can support you as a couple, family or individual.
Or perhaps you're affected by a loved one's diagnosis of a life-limiting or terminal illness, including dementia or cancer, and would like some support with this.
With a professional background in and passion for adult mental health, I am here for you if you're affected by depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress, borderline personality disorder or schizophrenia.
