"After feeling confused and angry a lot of the time, I felt the need to seek counselling before I self-destructed. Within a few relaxed sessions, I began to feel a lot calmer and more at peace with myself. I am now back on track with my life and can't thank you enough for your expertise. Many thanks again." J.
"I could never have got where I am without your friendly and insightful help, so thank you very much!" S
"I am definitely happier and have a clearer understanding of why I was unhappy. It's amazing really, how much better you actually feel voicing everything out loud and talking things through, acknowledging how you feel. So thanks very much for your support and kindness." M.
"Thank you very much for today. I feel so much better already and can't wait to come next week. The tapping thing you taught me is brilliant. Thank you. I've just done it now and it feels so much better. Thanks again." A.
"Our whole world has changed in a matter of days. Many of us are overwhelmed by what looks like more uncertainty than we've ever faced before. At the same time, we are under severe restrictions, told not to leave our homes, except for a few prescribed reasons. And I can no longer ask clients to attend counselling sessions at my place of work.
Unprecedented rapid change requires flexibility, the ability to adapt quickly and be smart about it.
I am determined to continue to support my clients and to ensure my counselling service is accessible to as many people as possible. That's why I've decided to adapt the way I work.
I am expanding my online counselling service, to offer counselling via Video, Audio-only, Live Chat or Email. Online counselling has been shown in studies to be as effective as face-to-face therapy, and it has many advantages, including ease and convenience.
Perhaps people need support and help with stress, worry and concern more now than ever? I'm happy that I've found a way to continue to provide effective help and support."

10 Signs that it’s Time to Change Your Life
1. Everything is getting on your nerves
2. You’re “in your head” more than you are "here now"
3. You need to drink every night after dinner, before bed
4. You’re calling in sick because you just can’t face work
5. You’ve started saying bad things about co-workers
6. You aren’t happy for your friends’ successes
7. Your relationships are suffering
8. You’ve started to lie
9. You cry more than you should
10.You know there is something better than this feeling
Do you feel stuck in a feeling that you can't get out of? Or you want to make a change, but you don't know how? Maybe you know what you need to do, but you keep putting it off? Or you've made a good start, but now you're self-sabotaging?
You don't need to do it all alone!
Change is never easy, even when it's really wanted. You can have great intentions and be properly motivated, but still be resisting the change and you don't know why. Rather than stay stuck, it makes sense to employ the services of someone with the right knowledge and tools to help free you from whatever has been holding you back.
Free 30 minute Introduction Session
"I had 6 sessions with Victoria and I do not think it is any exaggeration to say that the counselling has changed my whole outlook on life. I had been treated for depression for many years and as an ex-psychiatric nurse thought this was obviously causing my unhappiness. However, in a relatively short space of time, and with the help of Victoria's 'tapping' therapy, it became obvious that my interpretation of my mental state was completely wrong. It was a real eye opener to me to discover the true cause and it felt like a great burden had been lifted from my shoulders. She has really helped me and I fully recommend her to anyone else." P
"Thank you so much for all your help and support. I can't tell you how much it has changed how I'm feeling." L
Thank you so much for all your help. I can feel the change in me and I will be back very soon. I think you're an incredible therapist, and I'm so grateful that it feels like you've picked me up and placed me on the path I need to be on. To understand whu I was the way I was has been such a breakthrough, and I will listen to your recordings over and over, until I really do believe I'm worthy, I promise. A
