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.
