Fiona Riley (Dip. Couns) BACP
Are you feeling overwhelmed and wondering how you are going to get through the difficulties you are facing? Do you feel you have lost your purpose and are unhappy with life? Are you feeling isolated and burdened with no one who seems to listen or care?
We all go through these challenging and difficult times when we need help and support. It is at times like these that counselling can be of great benefit, helping us to make positive changes in our thinking and our lives.
Finding the right counsellor can be tricky. I would say follow your instincts and go with someone who makes you feel comfortable. I offer a safe, relaxed, understanding and confidential environment where I will listen with acceptance and empathy and without judgement; where we can explore even the hardest of issues.

The first session will be free for the first 20 minutes and give us chance to get to know one another. If you wish to continue the session up to the 50 minutes, it will be £35.00. Subsequent sessions will be £35.00 for a 50 minute session.
I offer person-centred counselling; being with you in the sessions, beside you on your journey. I won't advise you or tell you what to do, but rather, encourage you to make your own decisions. I believe that everyone has their own in-built capacity for achieving what they really want from life. Sometimes we know where we'd like to be but it can seem like an incomplete jigsaw or a muddle of pieces. I offer you the space to explore your jigsaw in a way that you feel comfortable.
Contact me today and we can have an informal discussion.
Free parking is available.
