Learn More About Me
Trusted Counselling Professional
Thank you for taking the time to look at my website , please let me introduce myself to give you insight into my background and of my counselling approach.
My name is Vivienne .
My training is in Person Centred Counselling. I am a registered member of the BACP ( British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) .
To be a member of the BACP ensures that I adhere to their ethical framework rules and regulations ,this gives the reassurance to my clients that their wellbeing is at the forefront of my practice .
I recognise that everyone is different no two people are the same what works for one may not work for another therefore I use an integrative approach in my practice , I take the time to get to know my clients and the way they work making sure my clients wellbeing is at the forefront of my practice ensuring they get the best from the counselling process .
I also can offer Meditation , breathwork and mindfulness to help with relaxation and sleep issues.
I have worked for several years with clients who have Autism and or learning difficulties this is a very rewarding part of my work however I counsel many different issues .
Abuse / emotional /sexual /physical
Covid 19 related issues
I am passionate that counselling is accessible to all .
Free phone or Zoom call
I offer this free intitial session to find out why you have decided to seek counselling and what you hope to achieve. I will then answer any questions you may have. After this session we will decide if we would like to work together and book in a regular time and day for you should you decide to proceed.
1 to 1 in person or via Zoom
I charge £50 per 50 minute session however I do offer a small number of spaces at a discounted rate for those on low income please don't hesitate to discuss your situation with me I will be glad to help. Sessions are usually weekly and are at the same time so that I can keep that space open for you all the while we are working together.
One to One counselling in person
This is a space where I will help you to work through the things that have been troubling you and holding you back.
I create a space that is calm non judgemental and safe with no pressure.
The sessions are client led which is at the core of person centred counselling, you do the work to take back the power you may have lost along the way and I will be there to help you to do this safely.
You are in charge of your life !
One to one counselling online
This is for those who find it hard to see someone in person for whatever reason .
The premise is the same as face to face counselling its just it is online via Zoom this allows you the client to access counselling from anywhere in the country or indeed the world !.
we will work together , the space is non judgemental and is your space to work through the issues that have been troubling you and holding you back .
As with face to face counselling the sessions are client led which is at the core of person centred counselling , this means you do the work and I will be there to help you do this safely .
You are in charge of your life !
No matter the challenge, I am here to help you bring about significant positive change.
