About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Fiona and I am a qualified counsellor. I offer support on-line or by telephone at the moment. I offer a calm reflective space where you can explore feelings and issues you are experiencing. Sometimes even to have a difficult conversation.

There are times when it may be helpful to work on concerns you may be facing in life. Choosing a counsellor is an important decision. Being comfortable and secure with your choice is the first step to developing a therapeutic relationship. I want to ensure we are able to develop a connection that enables you to speak about the circumstances that are creating difficulties in your life. I will work with you to support your exploration of making change and reaching self-understanding that reflects your own feelings and awareness.

There are many reasons why individuals come to counselling. For support and acceptance, to be heard and witnessed. My approach is to offer an environment that is not judging and critical, that is understanding and respectful of you. I acknowledge that you are the expert in your own life.

Confidentiality is also important so that you feel safe sharing often very personal information. I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice which can be found online at the BACP website.

I have worked with a wide range of individuals of all ages and backgrounds. I have experience of clients who have brought a varied range of issues including post Covid pandemic impacts which are coming increasingly more evident.
