Vivian Broughton

Vivian Broughton is the Director of the Centre for Healthy Autonomy in London.


Vivian is a Gestalt psychotherapist, and has been in private psychotherapy practice since 1989, working with individuals, groups and professional supervision since 1989. She met Franz Ruppert in 2004 and was sufficiently impressed to invite him to the UK to teach his work. Subsequently she organised regular twice-yearly seminars for him in the UK between 2005 and 2016. Since 2011 Vivian's work has been entirely aligned to Ruppert's theories and practice, and she continues to study with him at every opportunity.


She organised and edited the English translations of seven of Ruppert's books, all of which are published by Green Balloon Publishing, which she founded in 2008 with John Mitchell.


She has published three books of her own, one on Family Constellations, In the Presence of Many, and two on IoPT work entitled The Heart of Things: Understanding Trauma - Working with Constellations, and Becoming Your True Self: a Handbook for the Journey from Trauma to Healthy Autonomy. This last has also been translated and published in Dutch, German and Russian.


In addition Vivian posts regular blog pieces on her website on a variety of topics connected with her work.


In 2017 Vivian decided to establish the Centre for Healthy Autonomy in London, providing a physical home for the work of Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy in the United Kingdom.

All our books are available on all online bookstores.
