Vivine Adams Ad Dip PC /Cert Hyp CS
Hi if you are looking at this page then it is likely that you are thinking counselling. It is really important that you find the right counsellor for you someone that can best support you to move towards making the changes that you wish to.
I trained as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist. This means that I am trained in a variety of approaches and I can adapt my practice to what would benefit to you the client. I have knowledge in Person Centred Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Counselling, Psychodynamic Counselling
Counselling can be short term or long term depending on what you need.
Psychotherapy is more in depth and is often long term work and it requires the counsellor to be more knowledgeable in working with complex issues. I am able to offer both counselling and psychotherapy according to what works best for you.
In our first session I would like to find out about what you wish to work on and together we would decide the best way to work through your issues.
You might decide that you are not ready to work on some of your issues that’s OK because counselling is about what is right for you and you have the right to choose. I primarily work with clients who have experienced stress usually through work or through personal relationship. I work with adults and children who have experienced domestic abuse.
I work with couples who are having relationship difficulties and would like to work together to resolve these problems. I do not pretend that I am able to sort out your problems but I would work with you to find out what works best for the both of you in your relationship.
