Areas of practice
When we're feeling overwhelmed, confused, stuck or alone in our experience, finding support or receiving support can sometimes prove challenging. Practising a person-centred approach to counselling, I offer a safe and supportive environment where you can be yourself, explore and make sense of your struggles and find your way through them.
Welcome, I'm Vicky Mould, the founder and owner of Azalea Counselling. I have been counselling since 2011. As a mental health therapist and bereavement counsellor, I can offer caring and non-judgmental counselling for life challenges such as loss and grief - including baby loss, sexual or domestic abuse, stress, relationship issues, low self-confidence and self-esteem, loneliness, depression, postnatal depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, PTSD, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
In our counselling sessions, I'll do my utmost to help you feel welcome, safe, and genuinely valued, accepted, heard and understood. Working at your pace, I can support and empower you to gain relief, insight, hope and increased confidence and trust in yourself. My goal in our counselling is to help you make choices or changes you wish to make and continue with a more comfortable or fulfilling life.
Sometimes, it's hard to express yourself through words alone or move forward from struggles or concerns despite talking them through. For this reason, I offer the option of creative counselling, such as using art mediums alongside talking therapy, and you don't need experience or skills in art to engage in this process. We can discuss creative counselling in our initial sessions - if you'd like to.
I currently practise telephone and online counselling across Eastleigh, Winchester, Southampton, Fareham, and further afield if you live within the UK. Individual counselling is available on a long or short-term basis (6-12 sessions), yet I suggest an initial commitment of 6 sessions to help build our relationship and make progress in counselling.
I offer a 45-minute consultation at a fee of £30. The consultation is an opportunity to establish whether we could work well together. For an online consultation (and any subsequent online sessions), I use a secure platform such as Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp.
If you'd like to book a consultation or ask questions before taking that step, please email me or call or text my practice mobile 07729 193629.
I offer specialist services in bereavement counselling, domestic abuse and mental health counselling. Registered with the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society, I work within their Code of Ethical Practice.
I have been a bereavement professional since 2008 - initially as a trained volunteer for the charity Cruse Bereavement Care, and now as a bereavement counsellor in private practice. I can offer bereavement counselling for recent or past loss, including circumstances such as parent or sibling loss, partner or child loss, being a bereaved carer, loss to cancer or COVID and bereavement through sudden death or suicide. I hold further specialist training in baby loss, including the sensitive issues surrounding miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal loss and sudden infant loss.
I have personal insight into domestic abuse, and many years ago, I was a Helpline Volunteer for Women's Aid. In my private practice, I offer counselling support to people impacted by or currently experiencing domestic abuse - irrespective of gender, ethnicity or background.
I have a longstanding interest in mental health. I have worked with people experiencing anxiety, depression, postnatal depression, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress disorder. However, I do not see a diagnosis as defining the person you are or could become. Beyond the counselling room, I volunteer for Rethink Mental Illness. In the past, I've been a Support Time Recovery Worker for Together for Mental Wellbeing and a Support Worker for female inpatients of an NHS psychiatric Hospital. I've also volunteered for Solent Mind.
Counselling can be a courageous step in all these experiences, yet I can help you feel part of a safe, trusting and supportive relationship.
As I now practise telephone and online counselling, you can access sessions from the comfort of your own home or other private space. Depending on your preference or needs, sessions can be over the phone or via a secure platform such as Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp. With online counselling, video or real-time messaging sessions are available.
I am an Accredited Professional Registrant of the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (Registration No: VM00P06).
