Counsellor within Eastleigh and Southampton in Hampshire
Welcome, I am Vicky, and I am a registered Counsellor in Hampshire. I see individuals, couples and families (3-4 people in close relationships) for private counselling, and I work in Eastleigh and Southampton, and online via Skype.
There are many reasons why you might seek support from a Counsellor, and my counselling work includes bereavement and loss, depression, anxiety, abuse, relationship issues, low self-esteem, stress, chronic fatigue syndrome, and a lack of fulfilment or purpose in life.
As a Person-Centred Counsellor, I am committed to providing a safe and supportive relationship where you can be yourself, explore and understand what may be troubling you, and find your strengths and solutions for moving forward.
Seeking support from a Counsellor is a big step, and you are very welcome to contact me for an introductory appointment. Here we can discuss what has led you to seek counselling, what you hope to achieve, and decide if I am the right Counsellor for you.
There are no set reasons to come for counselling, yet it may help if you are feeling stuck, confused, unhappy or unfulfilled in life, anxious, stressed or depressed. Whilst it can feel very daunting, many people really benefit from the experience.
Counselling provides time and space just for you, and I often describe it as a form of looking after yourself. Here you can talk in a welcoming and relaxed setting, are free from outside pressures and expectations, and can feel valued, accepted and truly heard.
My approach to counselling is firmly grounded in a warm, genuine, deeply understanding and non-judgemental relationship, and 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.
