Are you feeling anxious? Depressed? Lost?
Perhaps you’re struggling with unexpected changes in your life .… relationship difficulties, the loss of a loved one, health problems? Or maybe you are wanting to move on from a situation that's holding you back, recover from hurt or disappointment or regain your sense of self and what to do with your life? Whatever our age or circumstances, there are times when we could all use some emotional support to light our way forward and to develop a deeper understanding of ourselves and our experience of life and others.
My name is Viviane, and as an experienced counsellor I can help you navigate through these and many other life changes. In my therapeutic practice, I offer you the emotional support and a safe, reflective space in which you can express and explore your thoughts and feelings to gain clarity about whatever it is that is troubling you.
I have experience working across a wide range of issues (fully listed below) including anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, relationship difficulties and low self-esteem. Working together, we can explore your unique qualities and strengths along with the positive changes you would like to make so that you can move forward in your life.

MBACP - Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).
In accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework, I receive regular confidential clinical supervision. I am also actively committed to my personal and professional development as a therapist.
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.
