My passion is working with individuals to help them overcome obstacles and become a healthier, happier version of themselves. All of us struggle with mental health difficulties at some point in our lives and so I believe that therapy should be seen as an act of self-care, just like looking after our physical health. Addressing mental health concerns can be overwhelming and it may be difficult to know where to start. Working together with a therapist helps you to identify the cause of your problems and break these down into more manageable chunks. I provide a safe, supportive environment for you to start to make positive changes.

From time to time many people struggle with issues in their lives, whether these are past or present events. My aim is to facilitate your process in resolving these life issues to enable you to live in a more fulfilled and productive way, to find a way in which these issues have less of an impact on your day to day life going forward. I will work at your pace in an empathic, non-judgemental way giving you as safe space to explore and acknowledge your feelings. As we are all individuals I endeavour to tailor your counselling to you as an individual and what works best for you.

Therapy offers a private and sacred space to think, feel and experience your true self. It explores your needs and processes feelings as they arise and from this comes a new clarity of awareness. I sometimes think of it as coming out of the dark woods and into the light. This transforming of the self takes place at first within the therapeutic relationship. Being listened to unfolds a discovery of new insights, which activates the development of inner strength, resilience, resolve, and purpose, as it gradually releases you from the felt wounds you have been carrying, such as, anger, confusion, sadness, grief, regret or loss.

Counselling therapy can help support you with many difficulties you may be facing, which are causing anxiety, low mood, low self worth. By working together we can explore the roots of the issues, bring understanding to the here and now, maintain tools and techniques moving forward to attain the goals you wish to achieve. Many clients seek therapy to have a better understanding of themselves, with this knowledge comes power to unearth thoughts, feeling and emotions that may have been masked.

Most people experience times in their lives when their feelings and their life as a whole seems totally unmanageable. Those moments are often described as ‘not being able to see the wood for the trees’- times when we feel that no one understands and we do not know which way to turn. Seeing a counsellor can often help you to gain a different perspective on life and see things more clearly. I believe that every person deserves the opportunity to be heard and to be given the chance to work through their problems in a safe and confidential space.

It's never easy to take the first step towards feeling better about yourself. Have you always placed your own wellbeing at the bottom of your priority list? You may now recognise that your struggles with mental health are having an impact in all areas of your life, including your relationships? You might have become distant and withdrawn; or noticed the impact your physical health. Life feels like hard work when you feel down, stressed, or depressed. Or do you need a safe space for personal development? You may also be wishing to develop a greater self-confidence, or tools to cope more effectively with what life throws at you.

Hello my name is Viv and I work in a person centred, integrative way from my counselling space which is called "The Sitting Room". Embarking on counselling can feel daunting especially when life has made you feel really challenged, but just making that phone call is a good start. I have worked with adults, teenagers, children and the elderly. I previously worked with vulnerable adults and children within an organisation so gained a lot of experience of working with difficult situations. Working alongside a client in a confidential way together we can explore issues and bring about some positive change.
