"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 so important, 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 through 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 or ongoing stress impacting a mental illness such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia? Would you like to explore a recent diagnosis of mental illness?
Are relationship issues or feelings of mistrust creating a sense of loneliness or lack of support?
Are you a survivor of sexual or domestic abuse and struggling to cope with your feelings and emotions? Are you being controlled/abused by a partner or family member, or think you might be?
I hope you'll reach out. You can email me through this website or call or text 07729 193629.
As a mental health therapist and bereavement counsellor near Winchester and Southampton, I'm here for you, and I can support you. I am down to earth, accepting, compassionate and attentive, and you can talk freely with me.
When you're struggling, it's not always possible to talk openly with family or friends. You may feel judged or not listened to/understood. You may feel they are contributing to your struggles. You may not want to burden or worry them. You may feel you need more support at the moment or a different kind of support. These are all reasons to come for counselling and talk things out.
How I can work with you
Contacting a counsellor may feel scary, yet it can be a helpful next step towards healing, inner peace, making changes or different life choices.
As a counsellor, I can help you feel part of a safe, trusting and supportive relationship, so you can explore what feels important to you and nurture your self-worth, confidence and self-esteem.
Practising person-centred counselling, I can support you to relieve that sense of overwhelm, loneliness, stress, isolation and confusion in a non-judgemental and safe space. Here you are free to express your thoughts, feelings, emotions and ideas and reflect on your experiences.
Creative mediums (colour, cards, photos, collage, journaling) can be used in counselling if this helps you connect with and express your feelings and emotions or if you'd like to work creatively.
I can listen in a way that helps you feel genuinely heard and understood - perhaps for the first time, get some clarity or a fresh perspective on things and develop that ability to listen to yourself.
As I trust you're the expert on yourself, I don't offer advice or make decisions for you. Working together is about empowering you to make choices or changes you wish to make so that you can move forward in a meaningful way.
Sessions are available over the phone or online using Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp. If you would like to ask questions about counselling or arrange a free consultation, you can call or text 07729 193629 or email me through this website.
