Viviane TalkeuIntegrative psychotherapist
As a qualified and registered therapist, I have worked in various settings including community centres, schools, universities, refugee services and in private practice. I am passionate about providing warm, creative, and culturally inclusive therapy. I have experience working therapeutically with young and older adults from diverse backgrounds. Having lived in several countries, I offer therapy in English, German, French, Spanish and Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian.
At some point, most of us may come to feel anxious, low, overwhelmed or simply stuck. Perhaps life events have left you feeling lost, confused, or distressed. Past experiences, present difficulties, and worries about the future can weigh us down, and it can be difficult to see a way out. Maybe you’ve been coping so far, but things now feel overwhelming; perhaps it has been this way for a while and talking to friends or family may not be enough or appropriate.
Each person who enters therapy has a unique story, a unique combination of experiences and circumstances. We all have different strengths and concerns. The starting point is to come as we are.
Whether you are dealing with a specific issue or would like to explore your existence in a broader sense, therapy can be an opportunity to create space in your life to consider where you are now, and where you would like to go from here.
People come for different reasons to therapy, but I am best trained to help if you:
Feel stressed, anxious or overwhelmed
Have a challenging personal or professional relationship
Struggle with confidence or self-esteem
Are in the transition into parenthood
Have arrived in a new country and are facing all the changes that this can bring
Would like to grow awareness of your cultural identity
My training is integrative, meaning I draw on different approaches depending on what works best for you. If you decide to come to therapy with me, you will be the one setting the agenda, pace and topics of discussion. I work with the understanding that you are the expert of your life, and my job is to support you on your journey to grow your confidence and trust in yourself.
I am bound by the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) code of ethics and am subject to their professional conduct procedure.
