About me

Hi, I am Fiona, a pluralistic counsellor, offering face-to-face and online sessions to clients over the age of 18. 

We all experience times throughout our lives when we could do with a bit of extra support. This could be for a number of different reasons including unresolved childhood issues, relationships, behaviour patterns, past or present life events, difficult situations or uncomfortable feelings, emotions or thoughts. 

My role as a pluralistic counsellor is to work within my skill and competence level to provide my clients with a safe and supportive environment where they feel comfortable to speak freely and share their story. 

I am not there to offer advice, judge or provide an instant solution or quick fix but instead I help my clients to explore their concerns and difficult or painful thoughts, feelings and experiences, allowing them to develop a better understanding of themselves and others. 

I am trained in various counselling approaches, including Psychodynamic, Person-Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), allowing me to respect each client as a unique individual and adapt my therapeutic style and methods to suit their specific needs, goals and wishes. 

I fully appreciate that counselling can be a big commitment, in terms of time, money and emotional resource so with this in mind I always work openly and honestly with my clients in a collaborative and fluid way to ensure that they feel they are getting maximum benefit from their sessions. 

I have worked with clients on a range of presenting issues including stress, anxiety, childhood trauma, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem and lack of confidence.
