Fiona Gilmour UKCP Integrative Arts Psychotherapist
I spent my early life in Australia and settled in the UK in 1982. From a young age I developed a great love of the sea and wild open landscapes, which remains a constant companion and source of inspiration in my work today.
Born to an Irish mother who immigrated to Australia at age 17, I became aware of the deep psychological impact of geographical displacement.
This led to my training as an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist in London, where I began practicing in 2003. Since then I have maintained a private practice as well as working the NHS and various private sector organisations and charities.
As an experienced Psychotherapist, I work with a broad spectrum of presenting issues, including inter-cultural dynamics, bereavement, eating disorders, trauma, depression, addiction disorders and bodywork focusing on the somatisation of abuse, including institutional abuse. From the onset of my clinical practice, I was drawn to working within voluntary sector organisations whose objectives were to meet and support vulnerable women who had been disenfranchised and marginalised in various contexts within their communities and broader society.
Training, qualifications & experience
MA, Dip, UKCP registered Integrative Arts Psychotherapist
The theoretical influences that inform my clinical work include self-psychology, object relations theory, attachment theory as well as Gestalt and psycho-dynamic perspectives. My practice is underpinned by the therapeutic application of the arts and central to my work is the engagement with the creative process using a diverse range of art mediums with an emphasis on Jungian Sand-tray therapy.
Since 2014, my clinical perspective and life orientation has been shifting towards the study of Eco-psychology and as such I work outdoors as well as indoors. My practice is based in a rural location 3 miles outside Fivemiletown.
