Hi, my name is Vicky and I offer counselling and psychotherapy for individuals and couples in North Essex and Suffolk.


You may be suffering from depression or anxiety, perhaps you’re feeling stressed or suffering from panic attacks?  My training and skills might be able to help you overcome your troubles.


I have been a trained counsellor for over 7 years and am a Member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. Throughout my time as a counsellor I have worked with people who are suffering from such things as, relationship breakdowns, trauma, bereavement and those facing childhood abuse and trauma.


There are many different types of counselling. I am primarily a Psychodynamic Counsellor, which means I aim to help you understand your deep-rooted feelings and how these may be impacting upon your current state of mind.


The role of your counsellor is to help you gain insight into your thought patterns.  We do this by looking at the events of your life and how they may be causing you to feel the way you do now.  When you work with a counsellor it can be easier to reveal any patterns from your past that you may not consciously notice and we can then work together to find acceptance, empathy and understanding.


You can read more about Psychodynamic Therapy on the counselling directory website.



My counselling service is based in the rural hamlet of Wakes Colne in North Essex. Just 20 minutes from Colchester and within easy reach of Sudbury, Halstead and Marks Tey, the location provides you with a relaxing and peaceful environment, away from the hustle of a town centre location.  You also have the added bonus of free on-site parking, which makes it easier for you to attend your sessions.
