About me

Hello. I'm Fiona, a counsellor based in Aviemore, Scotland. I offer a nurturing space either in person or online, to help you navigate life's challenges.

I aim to support people in leading grounded lives. This means having a regulated nervous system so you can move away from "survival mode," where you impulsively react to life, sometimes in painful ways. Grounding enables you to take ownership of your internal world, empowering you to respond in more helpful ways. It facilitates a connection with your authentic self and promotes meaningful connections with others.

Recognizing that healing and growth are unique journeys, I adjust my methods to each client's needs. I embrace a holistic approach that integrates person-centred and psychodynamic theories, along with elements of experiential approaches like 'parts work' and techniques for regulating the nervous system.

I highly value not only engaging in thoughtful conversations with active listening but also delving deeper beyond cognitive understanding. Our inner world holds richness beyond words. I encourage slowing down to listen to the valuable messages that your body, thoughts, and emotions communicate. These messages tell stories about your past and present feelings and direct the path to healing.

What to expect

I am committed to providing a warm and judgment-free space, where you can express yourself authentically. You get to choose what to bring to each session and what to talk about. I offer various exercises, including visualizations and somatic work, which you can try at your own pace. Between sessions, I may suggest optional "homework" for reflection and integrating insights. This is entirely voluntary and a tool for your personal self-discovery.

If you are interested in working with me, or hearing more about how I might be able to help, get in touch to arrange an introductory chat or first appointment.
