A very warm welcome to my site!

Starting therapy can often seem like a very daunting experience. Choosing a suitable counsellor becomes so much easier once you realise that the most important factor in determining successful client outcome is the quality of the therapeutic relationship. In other words, therapy will work if you find a good listener you feel comfortable with and connected to; someone who is genuine, respectful, encouraging, understanding and confidential. Internet research on a trusted site is your first step. Your second step is to make contact and your third is to trust your gut instincts.

My name is Viv and I am professional, genuine and down-to-earth. I am a highly qualified and BACP registered counsellor, and have extensive experience of working with young people and adults. My safe, confidential and easily accessible office space is based near Sandwich in Kent and I offer help with a broad range of issues including bereavement, depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues and low self-esteem. I work face-to-face, indoors and out, as well as online, with adults and young people (14+). I am a fully trained Walk and Talk therapist.

It takes great courage to reach out for help to get through a difficult time.

We all need a helping hand from time to time so...
