    1)The Trauma Process I use draws from Gestalt, Mindfulness, Ego-state Therapy, Narative Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Parts Therapy, Emotion-focused Therapy, etc. It uses hypnosis to deal with trauma where it is stored – in the unconscious and the body. It deals with the underlying causes, removing unconscious core beliefs and emotional charge from the past to return you to a state of empowerment, returning the sympathetic nervous system to calm. It integrates trauma fast and gently
    2) DBT teaches powerful skills that regulate your emotions and distress, plus interpersonal interaction and mindfulness, so you handle everything better.
    3) Emotionally focused Couple Therapy stops negative "unloving" cycles, brings you close again.

    Background

    I have been a Mental Health professional since 1989. when I was asked to start a service to help New Zealand workers struggling to cope with ACC (similar to Australia's Workers Comp) after my own struggle with ACC as an injured press photogropher.

    I quickly trained as a counsellor to offer more to my clients, and went on to complete three psychology degrees to become a registered psychologist. During this time I worked as a cousellor/psychotherapist/psychologist for a number of agencies including Barnardos, Lifeline, Victims of Crime, Relationships Australia. I trained in Hypnotherapy, and DBT skills for surviving anxiety & depression.

    Next I completed my Internship in Relationship Counselling with the ICEEFT, and in Trauma Therapy.

    10 Questions with Jessica Vivien

    • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

    • I had a close sister who committed suicide when we were in our teens, and I first needed to understand how such things can happen, and then to understand how they can be prevented.
      I then became aware that I had also been through severe trauma in our dysfunctional family and needed to learn to deal with the effects and heal myself.
      Having learn these things, I then wanted to share what I learnt to help others on the journey.
      I have also met some amazing psychotherapists, especially hynotherapist Maureen Kaluchi of Sydney, who made an enormous difference to me and mentored me. And I find it a real honour to be able to walk with others when their lives become a struggle, to hold hope for them when they are unable to do so, and then to watch them blossom and thrive.
    • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

    • Buddhist, Sufi, Christian, Jungian, the Yogic Sutras of Patanjali, Charlie Brown, Lunig, amongst others.
    • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

    • Trauma, working with women, hope, creativity, anxiety and depression, ptsd, life-threatening illness, relationships.
    • What method/s do you use?

    • Being a real person who listens to you and responds to you as a real person.
      TRTP
      DBT
      Jungian Psychotherapy
      mindfulness
      dreams and sand
    • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

    • After Session 1, as the new skills and knowledge kick in and they find they are managing better and changing things and no longer alone in their problem
    • How has therapy made you a better person?

    • It has made me much less reactive and much more mindful. TRTP has cured my own chronic fatigue after it haunted me for about 3 years, and TRTP also took the sting out of my previous triggers so they hardly ever get to me. EFT-CT taught me to stop blaming my husband for hurting and upsetting me and see instead the negative cycles we created between us that hurt us both, and then how to create positive cycles instead. Working with clients is an honour and a delight.
    • What do you like most about being a therapist?

    • The lovely people I get to spend time with and watching their lives transform. Doing something that feels valuable. The amazing insights people have, and how strong and resourceful they can be.
    • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

    • :-)
    • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

    • The effects of trauma on the human psyche and the power of our unconscious negative core beliefs to lock people into lives of pain, stress, distress. If we could reverse these, we would unleash an enormous wave of human potential, and there would be enough people with enough energy and capacity free to make a massive difference to every aspect of the world we live in.
    • Can you share the name of a book, film, song, event or work of art that inspires you?

    Do you need effective help now for anxiety, depression etc for yourself, children, relationship? I live and work in Perth Hills and have over 25yrs experience helping people like you. I also offer couple therapy and Medicare rebates for GP referrals with
    Most of my initial clinical training in psychology was in approaches like CBT, still useful in some cases. But I now target the trauma that is the root cause of most people's problems, instead of only working to reduce the visible symptoms....
