About Me. Vicky Mould

You may wish to know a little bit about me before making contact

Hi, I'm Vicky Mould.

I have practised person-centred counselling since 2011, yet I have embraced the philosophy of this approach for over twenty years. So I work to establish a relationship where you feel genuinely safe, accepted, valued, heard and understood.

Working together offers space to explore what feels important to you. I appreciate that trust can take time to build, yet you will be welcome just as you are, not expected to be or feel a certain way.

I don't advise you on what to do, yet I can listen at a deep level (perhaps as you might expect), help you gain clarity or a different perspective on your situation and develop your self-awareness.

As I believe you have the inner resources to work through your struggles and the ability to live a life that's fulfilling for you, I'll do my best to support you in reconnecting with that part of yourself.

A consultation session can help us establish if you feel comfortable talking to me and if we could work well together online or over the phone.

To book your free consultation, you're welcome to call or text 07729 193629 or use my contact form.


Diversity

My counselling approach/style is grounded in respect, valuing and empowering people - this was one of the reasons I was interested in it.

I work to understand your world as it is for you rather than make judgements and assumptions. I am open to learning from you and educating myself outside our counselling sessions.

I undertake ongoing self-reflection, yet have reflected extensively on areas such as ethnicity, cultural diversity, neurodiversity, age, class, gender, disability and sexual orientation.

While I have my own life experiences and professional training and knowledge, I trust you're the expert on yourself, so I seek to nurture and empower you in your own life and development.

Experience

I have been a trusted listener since my mid-teenage years. I've also experienced counselling and felt the benefits in all areas of my life.

I have a long-standing interest in adult mental health and can work with you to increase your overall sense of wellbeing. I have been a Support Time Recovery Worker for Together for Mental Wellbeing, supporting people at home and in the community. I have been a Support Worker for female inpatients of an NHS psychiatric Hospital. I have also volunteered for Solent Mind.

I am a former Helpline Volunteer for Women's Aid and hold personal insight into domestic abuse. But I can work with you irrespective of gender.

I have supported many people through the confusion and pain of loss and grief. Before qualifying as a counsellor, I volunteered for Cruse Bereavement Care, providing client assessments and one-to-one support. I have also facilitated local and online bereavement support groups.

I have been counselling since 2011 and now work exclusively online and over the phone and hold additional recognised training in this area.

I take a trauma-informed approach to my work, including the opportunity to use creative mediums in sessions. I access trauma training regularly as part of my continuing professional development.

Beyond my counselling practice, I've volunteered for Rethink Mental Illness since 2015. I facilitate a support group for women experiencing mental health issues and thoroughly enjoy this role.
