I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, working within Warwickshire and parts of the West Midlands. I have worked in a variety of setting including historic and current sexual abuse and rape, Domestic Violence and Hate Crime, Homelessness, Hoarding and life changing medical conditions. I have also supported those who have been suffering from mental health issues which have impacted on their integration with those around them and helped them find a way to become more integrated within the community and more self sufficient. My knowledge and experience enables me to work effectively with clients presenting with a variety of different issues and to provide a comprehensive assessment. I work with individuals, couples and with adults and adolescents.
The first session we will complete an assessment and plan what work you feel is appropriate to reach your goals. Counselling is a challenging and can be a tiring experience, my aim is to help with focused therapeutic interventions which aim to help work things out. You are required to be open and honest about how you feel and what you would like to change. My responsibility is to ensure you have the opportunity to do this.
I am pleased to announce that I am now offering counselling to individuals and couples with AS (Asperger’s syndrome).

''I spent a lot of time on my own, I dont think my dad realised how unhappy I was, I realise I didn’t spend much time with my friends. Viv helped me find confidence to go out and spend more time with people, she was pretty awesome.''
''Thankyou Viv, Thankyou Very much, We really didnt consider how much of a positive impact you would have on our relationship.''

''My therapy sessions help reduce my pain and further the healing process, Viv was compassionate and professional at all times, I felt valued and important, properly listened to and understood perhaps for the first time in my life''
''Without a doubt, Viv has had a huge impact on my life, I feel more positive about myself and confident that my choices are as important as everyone else’s''
''I think I was pretty chaotic, I definitely felt unable to function properly, well I wasn’t functioning, not really. Viv gave me the space and time to order the chaos.''
