Norma McKinnon Fathi, MSc, UKCP Registered
The Fitzroy Practice
3 Fitroy Place
I am a qualified psychotherapist working with individuals, couples and groups. I work with people who are experiencing a range of difficulties in their lives. In addition I have 10 years’ specialist experience of working with people who have experienced profound trauma in their lives. My work is integrative and focused on what you need, therefore I can use a range of perspectives and approaches so that I work with you in a way that provides you with the kind of support you are looking for.
I am committed to creating a safe space with you, a place of refuge when times in the here and now feel difficult or when painful past memories become overwhelming. At times we all need to find a space to explore what is going on within us and together we will work towards the resolutions you seek to the challenges you face.
My specialist experience has enabled me to work with people from all over the world, and I am confident in working trans-culturally or with language support. I have worked with people who have experienced a range of difficulties including childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence and torture. I have extensive experience working with complex trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, bereavement, loss and difficulties in relationships.
In addition to being a psychotherapist I am also a qualified community worker and have an interest in supporting activists who are working toward social change and also in supporting people who are experiencing workplace bullying.
I have experience of working both in private practice and in agency based clinical settings. I am co-founder of a small social enterprise whose work is focused on trauma, wellbeing, resilience and social change.
In addition to offering counselling and psychotherapy to individuals, groups and couples, I also offer supervision and consultation to other professionals who are engaging with trauma and support to people who are working preventatively or who are experiencing vicarious trauma.
I can work effectively face to face or online. I use Zoom and have provided counselling to people living in the UK and overseas online.
