About me and my therapy practice
My work with clients is led by their need working alongside them in a person centred way. Looking at issues that are at the forefront of their mind which prevent them moving forward in a way they would like Together we can work to create a more positive outcome and clarity about why those issues arose by working in a psychotherapeutic way and clients becoming more self aware.
Hello, my name is Vivien and I am a counselling/psychotherapist and have worked with adults, children and teenagers for many years. I really enjoy the fact that each person that comes to me is unique and this is the part of being a counsellor that I really enjoy. I work with clients exploring their lives and history in a truly confidential space which is a counselling room within my home called "The Sitting Room." Having worked for many years with children and adults within an agency in Plymouth I have gained a lot of experience from which I can draw on. From working with trauma, family dynamics to relationship issues the list goes on.
My first session
I offer a free introductory session when we meet so that we can discuss the expectations from counselling and also more importantly whether we believe we can work together. This usually takes about 30-40 minutes. If we move forward I will ask for assessment details from the client which will be held securely in line with data protections at our next session which is about an hour. I do take notes but these are anonymised and keep confidential.
