Vivienne Gridley-Harvey
Chartered Counselling Practitioner Psychologist and Psychotherapist
UK BPS CPsychol, AFBPsS, HPC Registered


I am a bi-lingual (English/French) Chartered Counselling Psychologist.

My post-graduate training, which is accredited by the British Psychological Society, has included humanistic / person centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural, Jungian analytical, and existential phenomenological orientations.

Working from an existential integrative understanding, I am committed to supporting others through times of transition, change and personal growth.

How can I help?
I have had a wide experience with individuals and couples in both long and short term counselling and psychotherapy, working with various age groups and issues. There are many reasons why people seek counselling and psychotherapy. For example, some people have specific issues on which they want to focus whilst others may be feeling anxious or depressed or have a general dissatisfaction with life without necessarily knowing why. I may be able to help you make sense of things which trouble you, identify changes you wish to make in your life and provide support for you during this period of change. The list below indicates the range of difficulties and concerns which people come with, although it is not exhaustive:

  • anxiety, stress, panic attacks, depression

  • relationship difficulties

  • substance abuse

  • eating disorders and self harming

  • psychosis

  • effects of emotional, physical or sexual abuse

  • lack of confidence and low self esteem

  • loss, bereavement and grief

  • phobias and obsessions

  • emotionally related health problems

  • displacement issues related to expatriation

However a specific problem is not considered necessary: feelings related to a lack of well being, or a desire for greater self-knowledge are also valid reasons for seeking counselling and psychotherapy.

The way forward
After an initial appointment, we will decide if, how and when to continue. Therapy can be short or long term and may vary from client to client. Confidentiality is fundamental to my practice: it creates a safe and private environment where issues and concerns can be openly discussed.

Cost
I offer a sliding fee scale for both individual and couple therapy.
