Synergy is an holistic approach to counselling, in which words and music play a central role in helping clients to find comfort, peace and spiritual refreshment.
Victoria Nevard, Accredited MBACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), and is a member of APSCC (Association for Pastoral and Spiritual Care and Counselling).
She is a qualified EMDR practitioner (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy), an interactive psychotherapy technique used to relieve psychological stress, an effective treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Twenty years of the diversity and challenges of working in the retail environment of London and in the financial institutions of the City drew her to the world of caring.
Her extensive and varied experiences of hospices, cancer care and private practice instilled in her a belief in the value of an holistic approach to therapy when working with people. She has always been drawn to palliative care. Caring for the carers is also close to her heart.
Victoria believes passionately that music has a powerful and restorative effect on the human soul. This, combined with her counselling skills, led to the setting up of The Nevard Charitable Trust – Synergy.
Victoria enjoys playing the clarinet and the piano. She is married to a professional musician.
Her own spirituality is grounded in the Christian tradition. The aim of Synergy, however, is to reach anyone, and to accommodate every tradition, faith or none.
