My work within mental health & learning disability services has given me additional experience in working with people with a variety of needs.
Many of us reach a chapter in our lives where we may feel stuck, unhappy, confused, unable to move forward or something we can't quite explain. Together we can work through these thoughts & feelings to find a way that works for you. I am interested in hearing your experiences & provide a safe & open environment for you to feel able to share. I am not able to give advice but I can share the journey with you & together we can try to make sense of your thoughts, feelings, memories & relationships.

Counselling and self-reflection is the opposite of selfishness. It is a tool that helps us to be able to take responsibility for our own feelings and allow us to have better control over the direction of our lives. So that we can be better functioning and content for ourselves and those around us.

Psychoanalytical Psychoanalysis and Integrative Counselling: "The speed and accuracy by which Chris was able to work out our personalities and provide genuinely useful insight was, quite frankly, incredible.  This insight, hard as it was to digest, proved to be so profound to me that I was finally able to unpick what had being going on in my relationship.  His ability to sum up the relationship in one stark metaphor was a watershed moment for me.  Through his insight and continued support I have managed to start to discover myself again and to regain my confidence which had been systematically dismantled."  Mr. M, 2019, Canterbury.

Given the latest government advice all sessions will be offered online. I have ten years of experience of working in this way and I am happy to give you guidance to set this up. You will need an internet connection (preferably high speed), a headset and microphone. I can also offer telephone sessions but face to face via an online platform is preferable. Psychotherapy is about being listened to and seen in a particular way. There is nowhere else in life that offers a time and space to focus on your 'self' - your body and your mind. My Kent practice is in the village of Bridge near Canterbury and is easy to reach.

I use an integrative style of counselling that enables a more personalised approach for you as a client. Counselling sessions are client led, in that anything that is concerning you can be discussed, including things past or present, major or seemingly minor issues...anything that is causing concern. I care passionately that every individual understands their value, significance and potential, no matter what their past has held, or the nature of present difficulties.

I am a qualified CBT therapist. My approach is both adaptive and solution orientated and works best for people who want to change how they are feeling, thinking and behaving. I can help you manage distressing emotions by changing your unhealthy thought patterns and replacing any unhelpful, destructive and self-sabotaging behaviours you may have developed with healthy, helpful practices. My approach is to help you develop a deeper understanding of who you are and why you do the things you do. I will help you develop a sense of self-respect and recognise you are stronger than you think.

Great, you have already taken the first steps for you. I am not the expert on you, you are. I am here to support and explore with you what you maybe finding difficult or just not feeling Ok. This may be in your relationships, in your physical body or you are finding both these things are overwhelming sometimes. Together we can wonder, ponder and educate ourselves and understand, why? Then we can make a strategy and build on your already available resilience (you are here remember), and improve this together. This maybe just a few sessions, sometimes just one or a little longer if you need this.

Hello my names Vivienne I am passionate in helping individuals to feel heard and understood. I want to my client to be able to open up and feel safe to explore thoughts and feelings that have been painful to visit . I want my clients to be able to express themselves in ways they may not be able to outside of the counselling environment, I want clients to leave feeling empowered to come back and unpack the things that have been holding them back in life to make decisions that benefit them and not to please others . Ultimately I want my clients to feel empowered and comfortable to be themselves in a society that demands conformity.
