Vivien is a clinical psychologist with over 10 years experience working with adult clients. Her special interest is in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. Vivien has found EMDR to be helpful for PTSD, recurrent depression, various forms of anxiety and any current day issues that have their origins in painful or traumatic life experiences. EMDR proposes that people have an innate drive for healing that can be activated during therapy.
Vivien values finding collaborative and creative ways to help people to achieve their goals. Vivien aims to provide a caring, safe and respectful space. Other approaches that Vivien draws from include Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT), Dialectical behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, and Compassion Focused Therapy.
