About me

  • Are you always feeling overwhelmed and chasing your tail?
  • Are you low and not performing at your best?
  • Are you shying away from opportunities in favour of your slippers and sofa?
  • Are you struggling with unwanted behaviours or phobias?
  • Are you waking up at 3 or 4 am with negative internal chatter?
  • Do you dream about getting eight hours of sleep a night?

Well if I could provide you with the tools of how to get on top of these things  – would you be open and ready to hear more?

If YES – Let's connect, let's talk, and open up that conversation.

What my clients say:

"I’ve avoided therapy my whole life, believing that I was strong and self-sufficient and that it wasn’t for people like me. However I became aware that I wasn’t making the most of the present because of unresolved issues from the past and that minor setbacks were becoming overwhelming. I love the way Viv’s approach focuses on science and logic in the mastering of emotions. More than anything, her sessions have given me perspective and have empowered me to take control over challenging situations within all areas of my life. Learning how to approach the future with a positive outlook is a real gift." - Justine

'The brain is complex, and without management can be polarising to performance and wellbeing regardless of previous successes, senior positions, roles and responsibilities. I have held various senior roles with much success, however, like a lot of people suffer at times with anxiety, loss of confidence, and mental health issues for a number of reasons. I came to Viv in a desperate state and was signed off work with stress and anxiety. With Viv’s expertise and guided support I quickly understood what was going on in my brain, why it was happening, the triggers and importantly over time ways to manage my brain to develop new coping methods. I not only went back to my role but exceeded all objectives to finish the fiscal year as a top performer and was also promoted. I could not have done this without Viv and solution-based hypnotherapy. The best ROI is intangible, you cannot put a price on your mental health, not only am I performing well at work but family life has improved massively too. I will continue seeing Viv on an ad hoc basis now to ensure old habits do not creep back in!' - Claire

"I have suffered from intermittent depression for years. I’ve read books, taken tablets, had counselling, and along the way picked up tools to help me cope. But fed up with just ‘coping’ and hitting an all-time low, I decided to give hypnotherapy a try. With an open mind, I knew from the first meeting that Viv was someone I could really trust.

I embraced the process fully and really worked hard knowing that I needed to give this my best shot. I have finished my course with Viv and now after 12 sessions, I am a confident, happy person; with a quieter mind who is now dealing with stressful situations in a calm, clear manner. It felt just as if my own personality “re-set button” had been pressed at around week 9 and I regained my self-worth, a true vision of who I am, and appreciation for my life and family.

Thank you Viv! " Rod
