Vivienne is currently in the 4th year of a PhD in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy at the New School for Psychotherapy and Counselling in London.Her overarching orientation is humanistic-existential and she views the person holistically in their world embedded with relationships. Vivienne previously worked in a cognitive behavioural setting with teenagers and she incorporates elements of this into her work in particular when working with anxiety.
Vivienne completed a Masters in Clinical Social Work in 2000 in Canada which built upon a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from McGill University. During her career, she has moved back and forth between private industry (law, HR and telecoms) and the public sector (social services, local government and hospitals) as she has lived abroad for the last 20 years and is currently in private practice alongside training at EASE.
Vivienne is also very interested in working with loss (relational, job or life transitions), depression, values and meaning in life, perfectionism, insomnia and anger.
