Fiona Gelling BSc (Hons), PGD, MNCS (Acc)
There are times in all of our lives when things just don't seem right, our lives seem to be spiraling out of our control. Days seem a bit darker, relationships seem a bit harder or we are just feeling sad.
Being unwell is not a choice and neither is the resultat isolation, shame and guilt. Asking for some help is an act of bravery.
I offer a safe place to explore these feelings or other important matters in your life, in confidence and without the fear of being judged. As an Integrative Psychotherapist I provide a place that allows you to fully explore your issues with a respectful other person. We will work together to find ways to overcome obstacles and improve your life
I am able to offer day sessions at my central Leicester offices and evening sessions in Whitwick.
I have worked in a general counselling practice since 2009, with clients from their teens to retirement age and with both men and women. I have a wealth of experience in working with clients who have relationship issues, bereavement issues, and those who are affected by anxiety, panic attacks, fear, anger, rage, depression, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, or moments of disassociation. I also work with clients who have experienced sexual and/or physical abuse, domestic abuse and clients suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. I have also recently worked with people affected by hoarding.
I work with individuals, couples and families.

I believe that we both decide if we can work together therefore the initial assessment session will be at a reduced rate of £10.00, after that I charge £45.00 per session and each session lasts an hour.
I offer reduced rates for Students.
In order to make therapy as accessible and affordable as possible to all I may be able to negotiate a reduced fee, so contact me to discuss what options may be available to you.
If an appointment is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, the fee for the session is payable.
I look forward to hearing from you.
