Fiona Bowden MBACP
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work with adults and young people and can additionally offer family sessions.
I have nine years experience as a Counsellor. I aim to offer my clients a chance to explore their thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental, safe and supportive environment. My Integrative approach allows me to draw from a range of theoretical models; this means I can apply appropriate techniques where necessary.
My many thousands of hours of client contact have addressed depression, low mood, mental and emotional disorders, loss, grief and bereavement, illness, gender identity, family issues, parenting, neglect, OCD, disordered eating, self harm, bullying, social issues, debt and substance misuse.
My experience, understanding and empathy are broad ranging. I can be approached on all presenting issues; we can discuss an onward referral if I am unable to help.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and an FdA Degree in Integrative Counselling.
I have successfully worked with young people, adults and families as an employed and self employed counsellor. I am experienced in building relationships with young people. My work has been community, school and practice based.
I practice from my own beautiful premises in Hoxne and I have sufficient space to see families and groups.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
