About Victoria Cobbs
Welcome to Changing Tides
Hello, I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor/psychological therapist. I work with clients offering short term or longer open-ended support.
My original training was in the Psychodynamic approach and since qualifying I have worked in various different settings, enabling me to develop and broaden my practice and skills, including over 10 years experience in working within an NHS IAPT service as a Counsellor and latterly as Lead Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor. I have previous experience of working within an Alcohol and Substance Misuse service (SASS) helping clients address addiction problems.
When working with clients I draw on my psychodynamic training to help my clients and me build a picture of their lives both past and present, and also draw on my further training and experience in an integrative way to help inform the work and identify how best to support change.
I also offer interpersonal therapy and supervision as recommended by NICE for clients suffering with moderate to severe depression. IPT is a structured 16 week therapy focussing on a specific difficulty clients are experiencing.
