"When someone really hears you without passing judgement on you, without trying to take responsibility for you, without trying to mould you, it feels damn good". - Carl Rogers
I am a mental health therapist and bereavement counsellor near Winchester and Southampton
Welcome, I'm Vicky Mould and thank you so much for coming to my counselling website.
I am a mental health therapist and bereavement counsellor near Winchester and Southampton.
I currently practise online and phone counselling across Eastleigh, Winchester, Southampton and Fareham (or further afield if you live in the UK).
I hope the information on this website gives you a sense of what I can offer and how that might benefit you. If you'd like to take that next step into counselling, you can contact me to arrange a free 45-minute consultation online or over the phone.
Some reasons to get in touch
Are you struggling with feelings of loss and grief - through bereavement or other life changes?
Are you battling frequent anxiety, depression or postnatal depression or overwhelmed by thoughts and feelings of suicide or self-harm?
Has a diagnosis of schizophrenia or bipolar disorder affected your confidence? Or is stress currently impacting the symptoms of your illness?
Are you experiencing relationship issues, such as difficulties with trust, communication, self-worth, self-esteem or feeling connected to others?
Are you struggling to manage workplace stress?
Is sexual or domestic abuse in the past impacting how you experience life now? Are you being controlled/abused in a current relationship, or are you concerned this may be happening to you?
Acknowledging that you need some support and contacting a counsellor can be scary, yet perhaps you're feeling stuck, confused or alone in what you're experiencing. Or maybe talking to those around you doesn't feel helpful or possible.
I can offer a safe and supportive environment where we can explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences together - at your pace.
I am a down-to-earth, non-judgemental and attentive counsellor, so you can talk freely and feel valued, accepted, heard and understood.
Counselling with me can offer relief, insight, hope and increased confidence and trust in yourself.
Sessions are over the phone or online using Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp, which may feel more convenient for you, discreet or relaxed.
As a person-centred counsellor, I work to provide an environment where you can make sense of your struggles and find your way through them.
In the counselling space, you will be welcome as you are - not judged, and I can help you feel part of a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship.
Creative mediums, such as art materials, cards or photographs, can be used to help you connect with and express your feelings and emotions or if you would like to try out the creative process.
I can listen in a way that helps you feel genuinely valued, heard and understood - perhaps for the first time, get some clarity or a fresh perspective on your situation and develop your awareness.
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 make life choices or changes that you want to make and move towards a more comfortable or fulfilling life.
If you'd like to explore counselling together, you can contact me to arrange a free online or phone consultation. You can email me through this website or call or text my mobile 07729 193629.
As a bereavement counsellor, I can offer support if you're struggling with feelings of loss and grief
Many life events and circumstances can trigger feelings of loss and grief, including:
But experiencing (and working through) loss and grief can be confusing and overwhelming.
And it's not always possible to grieve freely with the people around you or talk openly to them.
I'm a bereavement counsellor near Winchester and Southampton, and I can offer compassion, understanding and genuine non-judgement.
I can offer a safe environment to explore your sense of personal loss, express your feelings and emotions and find a meaningful way forward.
Bereavement counselling is an effective form of support if you have experienced the loss of a friend or family member, including a child.
Perhaps you're struggling with your feelings and emotions or would like a safe environment to share or create memories and talk openly about the relationship you hoped for or had together.
Or you'd like support to come to terms with your loss and adjust to the changes in your life.
Or maybe your loss has triggered new or worsening depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder, and you'd like support with this.
I can offer compassion, attentive listening and understanding. I can work with you at your pace to find your sense of coping and moving forward.
I have been a bereavement professional since 2008 - initially as a trained volunteer for Cruse Bereavement Care and now as a bereavement counsellor in private practice. I've worked with people bereaved through different circumstances.
I hold further training in child and baby loss, including the sensitive issues of miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal loss and sudden infant loss.
