About Me

Victoria Darby, MA PgDip BSc MBACP Accred


My Background

I have worked in healthcare for over 20 years and have been a qualified psychotherapist since 2011. I first trained as a nurse, then as a senior lecturer and then as a psychotherapist. Each path I took always involved trying to understand everyone as an individual and support their emotional wellbeing, whether they were a patient, a student or a client. I trained for four years in Therapeutic psychotherapy and qualified as a therapist. I worked as a bereavement co-ordinator for a hospice and as a psychotherapist for a psychodynamic charity. I have worked in private practice since 2012, with clients who have experienced an array of issues such as:  limited self-worth, anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, PTSD, domestic violence, anger issues, OCD, phobias and losses such as bereavement and divorce.
