"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 counsellor and bereavement counsellor near Winchester and Southampton
Welcome, I'm Vicky Mould and thank you for coming to my website. I am a professional counsellor working online and over the phone with adults of all ages and currently provide counselling across Eastleigh, Winchester, Southampton and Fareham in Hampshire.
Finding the right counsellor is (really) helpful, so I hope the following information helps you get a sense of me and how I can work with you.
Reasons to get in touch.
Are you struggling with feelings of loss and grief after bereavement or other life changes?
Are you battling depression, postnatal depression or frequent anxiety? Is self-harm or suicidal feelings concerning or overwhelming you?
Is increasing stress impacting your bipolar disorder or schizophrenia? Has a diagnosis of mental illness affected your self-esteem?
Are you experiencing relationship issues, including difficulties with self-confidence or feeling connected to others, worry or fear in a new relationship or when you're around others?
Have you survived sexual or domestic abuse yet struggling with the impact of your experience? Are you being controlled and abused by a partner or family member, or think you might be?
Talking openly to friends or family may feel unhelpful, unsafe, or like you're burdening them. Or you may be experiencing a lack of support or feel you need a different kind of support. Or you may want an outside (yet non-judgemental) perspective. These are all reasons to come for counselling and work things through together.
As a mental health therapist and bereavement counsellor near Winchester and Southampton, I am here for you, and I can support you. I am down-to-earth, accepting, compassionate and attentive, and you can talk freely with me.
You're welcome to email me through this website or call or text my practice mobile 07729 193629.
How I can work with you
As a counsellor, I can help us establish a safe, trusting and supportive relationship so you may be yourself, explore how things are for you and nurture your wellbeing and development.
Practising person-centred counselling, I can support you to relieve that sense of overwhelm, aloneness, stress, stuckness or confusion in a safe and non-judgemental environment. Here you are free to express your thoughts, feelings and emotions and reflect on your experiences.
Creative mediums (creating collage art, using crayons, coloured pens or pencils, journaling, working with cards or photos) can be used in our counselling to support the process of connecting with and expressing your feelings and emotions or if you'd like to try out a creative approach.
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 things and develop your self-awareness.
As I trust you're the expert on yourself, I don't offer advice, tell you what to do or how to be. But I can support and empower you to make life choices or changes that you wish to make.
Sessions are available over the phone or online using Zoom, FaceTime or Whereby. If you have any questions about counselling or wish to arrange a free consultation, you can call or text 07729 193629 or email me through this website.

Counselling is an environment where you can understand and openly acknowledge the losses you have experienced and grieve at your pace.

Perhaps you're concerned about how you are feeling or how you are dealing with your grief.
Or maybe you'd like to feel less alone in your experience, adjust to the changes in your life or work through new or worsening depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder.
Or perhaps you would like a safe space to share or create memories or talk openly about the relationship you hoped for or had together.
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.
As an Accredited Practitioner of the Foundation for Infant Loss, my professional training includes the sensitive issues surrounding miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death and sudden infant death.
