Counselling is a service at Viney Hall run by Caroline Vieira. It offers a safe and confidential place to talk about anything that is troubling us.
It is often easier to talk to a counsellor than to family or friends. As we live and grow and try to adapt to our life’s experiences it can be helpful to talk to a person who is impartial, non-judgemental, and trained in the art of listening attentively, with whom we can explore our feelings, fears, hopes and challenges.

What’s it all about?

I believe that counselling and psychotherapy are a vital part of rediscovering our soul’s calling. By enabling us to recognise what we are feeling and heal the hurts, we can contribute confidently in our changing world.

We each know that we are unique individuals, yet frequently it feels that we are ignored or over-ridden in order to fit in with other people’s needs.

How do we find ways to express ourselves, to release our fears, our gloom, to gain insight into our purpose and direction, to heal our wounds, to relate more authentically?

My theoretical approach is integrative, through which I combine a soulful perspective with down-to-earth high-quality therapeutic skills.

I usually suggest starting with 6 sessions, after which we review and decide together whether longer-term therapy would be beneficial. Sessions are 50 minutes, once a week.
