About me

You may feel alone with your problems, whether or not you have people around you, who love you and care about your well-being. 
You may feel isolated or stuck with a particular situation or with a persistent emotional or mental health difficulty. 
You may just want to take time away from your usual routines and responsibilities, to reflect on the course of your life, and to regain a sense of perspective and purpose.


I'm qualified in counselling and psychotherapy and I work
with people struggling with a wide range of emotional issues and mental health problems (please see the list, below). Whatever your situation or difficulty, you'll be warmly welcomed by me.

Talking with an experienced counsellor can help to deepen your own understanding of your personal difficulties. It can help you to find more successful ways of managing your life and help you to feel less isolated. It can be really helpful to talk with someone who is not directly or emotionally involved but who may be relied on for short-term or long-term emotional support, without becoming overwhelmed by your experience.

I will always strive to work with you as an individual coping with personal and unique life events - even in circumstances where you have already been given a diagnosis by another mental health professional. I don't see myself as an expert on how you should live your life; I won't tell you what to do. I will, however, support you, as we explore whatever you want to bring - from your past or your present - to our sessions.

I offer daytime and evening appointments. I would be happy to meet you for a stand-alone, one-off session if you don't feel ready to commit to more.  You can phone or email me for more information before making an initial appointment, if you prefer.

Please also see my website, Viv Webb Counselling, for more details about the way I work and how we could work together.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am interested in the ways we - as individuals and as a society - parent our children and support them into adulthood. I'm keen to support (individuals within) families with their inter-family communication.

Please feel free to talk to me about anything that causes you distress or concern - whether or not it's included in the above list.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
