Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed or worried ? Perhaps your mood has been low for a while and you can’t seem to shift that feeling. Sometimes life events such as losing a loved one, relationship break-ups, family problems or work issues can leave us feeling helpless. Perhaps you are considering help to untangle your thoughts. Maybe you think a lot about things that have happened in the past that still affect you. Sometimes there may be a sense that life is lacking in meaning and direction. We can all lose sight of who we really are and what we want from life.

For 20 years I have trained in and practiced several effective self development and psychotherapeutic approaches, all of which support healing and change. I have worked within the NHS with adults with high levels of mental and emotional difficulties as well as more recently with families, children and adolescents with low to moderate difficulties in anxiety, low mood and behaviour difficulties. My work ranges from a long term psychodynamic approach to short term trauma based EMDR. Both will increase your awareness of how past experience can create unhelpful patterns in our present. Both can transform in a gentle and safe way.

I know the past couple of years have been really difficult times for everybody and there have been many changes in how we meet and talk to each other. Certainly in EMDR treatment, we have had to make rapid changes in how we think and work in order to remain available to those in need. My own experience in working online with life's complex and diverse difficulties has found that positive and effective work can equally be achieved via video sessions and has enabled me to work with so many who would otherwise find difficulty in travelling perhaps due to time, distance, work or other factors.

Feeling stuck? Overwhelmed? Unsure of how to navigate life right now? I offer talking, walking and creative therapy outdoors, indoors and by telephone so we can work together to explore and understand your feelings, underlying reasons and how, if at all, you would like life to change. If you are feeling depressed, anxious, stressed or challenged by life and your circumstances, talking your thoughts and feelings through can help provide emotional support and the space to explore how to cope. How we feel (or don't feel) is often a clue as to what is working well for us, or what might need to change to lead a fulfilling life.

Are you feeling down, struggling with depression and/or anxiety, pretending everything is OK when it's not? Do you have the sense that life has passed you by, that you lack purpose and drive? Maybe you've lost that sense of self, suffer low self-esteem or feel that you just don't belong? Are you struggling with trauma/past abuse or feel isolated, anxious and lonely? Perhaps you have relationship difficulties or health issues that are getting you down? Maybe you're elderly or stuck at home, feeling forgotten? These are all good reasons to access counselling and help you move forward in life. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Through therapy you can find out things about yourself that will help you understand what is going on for you and help to develop your own understanding and gradually learn more about your innermost parts and lead the way to greater acceptance of yourself. This is awareness and will help you feel more empowered to choose to do things differently. I believe this work is about being true to yourself rather than being who you think you 'should' be and to reclaim those parts of you that have been denied. It is both challenging and rewarding work leading to emotional healing and growth.

Amongst them, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, problems of identity and sexuality.
If you are struggling with intense feelings of fear, anxiety and sadness and if you find yourself full of panic, despair and frustration you may be trying to understand why you are trapped in these feelings much of the time. If you ruminate on situations, worry about past events, struggle to connect to those in your life and find your days consumed by worry, anger and stress, then a period of therapy may help you to gain insight into the origins of your emotional distress.
