About me

Hi I’m Fiona.

A bit about counselling:

Whatever your situation I firmly believe that counselling can help. Whether you are feeling well and would like to overcome a life event, or if you are at the point in your life where you feel stuck or overwhelmed without a way to move beyond your situation, there is hope.

About me:

I am trained in a relational-dynamic approach that focuses on the ways in which we relate to ourself and to others. I have an ‘integrative’ approach to counselling, in that I can offer a range of approaches, theories and techniques to make sense of your situation and move beyond what is concerning you. However it may be that you simply want a space in which to be heard, with less theoretical jargon- which is equally fine! We would work in a collaborative way to help you get what you are wanting from therapy.

About our therapy:

This would be led by your goals and desired outcomes, and go at your own pace. Sometimes this can be a ‘freeing’, a ‘letting go’ or working through a situation. Sometimes it can be an acknowledgement or sitting more comfortably with something. Ultimately your experience of therapy needs to be a safe and welcoming place where you can talk about things confidentially and without judgement.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
