Vicky Mould Person-centred/humanistic counsellor , SO50
Thank you so much for coming to my profile, and I hope the following information helps you decide whether to contact me for counselling.
Counselling is a safe way of working through experiences such as loss, grief or bereavement, depression, anxiety or other mental health issues, low self-esteem, relationship issues, stress, the effects of domestic abuse/violence, difficulties coping in pregnancy and with parenthood.
I am a registered counsellor for adults of all ages, including couples and families, and I offer person-centred counselling to support you with the challenges you are facing, help you find your way through them and continue to be the best that you can be.
I'm easy to talk to, and I won't judge or define you or tell you what to do.
I can see you on a weekly or fortnightly basis, and counselling sessions offer a space to explore and reflect, feel genuinely valued, accepted, heard and understood. Here you can gain awareness and new perspectives, and develop confidence and trust in your ability to cope, heal or change.
Sessions can include the use of art and other mediums - you may find it difficult to express yourself through words, prefer a creative therapeutic approach or wish to experiment with the art mediums.
I will work alongside you at your pace, for as long as you need, so you can move forward in a way that feels right for you.
I am an experienced bereavement counsellor, and I'm here for you if you're struggling to cope with a loved one's disability, life-limiting or terminal illness, or the death of a friend, family member, partner or child. I have received specialist training in baby loss - miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, sudden infant death, yet I can help if you've suffered the loss of a child or grandchild of any age.
I work with both men and women survivors of domestic abuse, including being exposed to abuse and violence in your childhood or teenage years. You can also get in touch if you're worried about a person under the age of 18 - perhaps you suspect or know that they're in an abusive relationship and would like support with this.
I can support you with stress and challenges in pregnancy and with parenthood. I have both personal insight and professional knowledge of autism, and I can help if you're parenting a child suspected of or recently diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
With a professional background in adult mental health, I am here for you if you're affected by depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder or borderline personality disorder.
