Fiona Ball Counsellor (MBACP)
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, providing long-term and short-term therapy at my practice. My practice is based at the Cornerstone in Wokingham which is within easy reach of Bracknell, Binfield, Twyford and surrounding villages.
As an Integrative Counsellor I am able to draw on a range of theoretical models to support our work and make sense of what is affecting you. I work relationally – meaning that our relationship is at the heart of the work. This is an important foundation for building trust and working through the issues that may be holding you back.
Please e-mail or call me to arrange an initial appointment. The first appointment is an opportunity for us to meet, to understand more about you and your needs and whether my support could help.
If we decide to work together we will meet weekly, usually at the same time each week. This might be for a fixed number of sessions, or open-ended. We will discuss this together.
