Counselling in Eastleigh and Southampton, Hampshire
Welcome, I am Vicky, and thank you so much for coming to my website. I hope you find the information you need here, yet if you do have any questions I would love to hear from you.
If you are seeking counselling for the first time, it may be helpful to know that counselling provides a safe and confidential place where you can talk freely without judgement or criticism, and feel valued, accepted and truly heard.
My approach to counselling is Person-Centred, and I provide a supportive relationship which is firmly based in me being warm, genuine, deeply understanding and accepting. I regard whatever you bring to counselling as important, and I work at a pace that feels comfortable for you.
I trust that you are the expert, so I will not tell you what to do or provide solutions, yet I will support you in making sense of things for yourself. My aim is to enable you to make choices and changes that you want to make, and continue to strive towards a healthier and more fulfilling life.
I can see you on an individual basis, as a couple or family, and I work from private and comfortable rooms within The Wells Place Centre, Eastleigh and The Romney Centre, Southampton. I also work via Skype, and I am happy to discuss the possibility of Skype counselling.
You are very welcome to contact me for an introductory appointment, and here we can discuss what has led you to seek counselling and what you hope to achieve, and establish if we could work well together. You can call 07729 193629 or send an email via this site.
