Schizophrenia: Schizophrenia describes a range of disorders where individuals may experience hallucinations, voices, odd or very different beliefs, mood instability and often appear to have lost contact with what others think of as “reality”.  Often Schizophrenia, psychosis and bipolar disorder are mislabelled in the early days as all disorders have episodes that may have symptoms in common.  Many people with Schizophrenia recover well given the right support.

Counselling Approach: I prefer to work with individuals skills and strengths in conjunction with their treating GP and/or psychiatrist. I manage a small number of clients, so this means that I may be more accessible in case of an episode.  I can often see clients within a day or two which helps immensely with disorders like schizophrenia. Those that are maintaining full time employment, study, children and relationships may find my positive non-labelling approach helpful.

Fees: Vivian no longer will be able to accept Medicare referrals due to travel and business commitments. Her books may be closed for extended periods.
