Riviera Wellbeing has added two new therapists to its team. Therapy is now available to individuals and couples in English, Italian and French speaking languages.
“This is the next step in our evolution” said the founder of Riviera Wellbeing, Gavin Sharpe. “Plans are in place to add therapists who are German, Spanish and Russian speakers. The French Riviera is home to a diverse population and these new hires recognise the region’s diversity. It also recognises the explosion in demand for mental health services especially since the pandemic”.
Riviera Wellbeing also intends to launch a low-cost therapy service in 2022 in line with the organisation’s philosophy that people at all income levels deserve the same access to the same therapy.
Tiga-Rose Nercessian and Sandra Vasiljevic Berset will initially work online. “Online therapy is here is to stay,” states Gavin Sharpe. “An increasing number of clients want to have therapy from the privacy and comfort of their homes. Research now supports online therapy is as effective as face-to-face ,and in some circumstances, can be more effective.”
Other plans include an expansion of the couples wellbeing services. Gavin states “More couples are coming to therapy not because something is missing but because they want more. This is relationship enhancement not crisis management.” Riviera Wellbeing already offers couples intensives where couples come either on their own or in a small group and spend two-days with two therapists and transform the intimacy and quality of their love relationship. “We take our cars in for a regular check-up, why not our relationships?” states Gavin.
