Fiona Magill Fd Counselling; Registered Member BACP
I am a professionally qualified integrative Counsellor, based in the Waterside of Derry/Londonderry. I am a registered member of BACP. I work with adults on a one to one basis, and have appointments available in the evenings. I offer reduced rates for students, people working part-time hours and those whose main income is benefits.
How are you today?
Hi there. How are you? Usually when we are asked this, we say “fine thanks” or “I’m grand.” But maybe you’re not feeling fine or grand really. Perhaps you are feeling sad or worried, confused or alone. Maybe it has been a challenging few months and things are piling up on you. Perhaps some counselling could help you work your way through your difficulties and find a way forward.
What is Counselling?
Counselling is a confidential conversation between two people, that takes place in a safe, welcoming space. It involves opening up about what is troubling you and talking through issues and working together to find a way forward for you. I am an integrative Counsellor, which means I use a few different counselling styles in my work, including person centred, cognitive behaviour therapy, and Mindfulness. I treat each of my clients as an individual and tailor sessions accordingly. I am a registered member of BACP, a governing body for Counsellors.
What can I help with?
I often work with people who are experiencing anxiety and/or depression, those with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder or personality disorder and those who have experienced a traumatic incident in their lives. I also work with individuals who are supporting someone with a mental health issue.
In addition, I have a lot of experience supporting individuals who have lived through domestic abuse and those who are grieving the death of a loved one. I also have worked extensively with individuals with Asperger's Syndrome. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for clients to share their worries and work through their difficulties.
I firmly believe that you are the expert on yourself and that with the right support, you can rediscover your confidence and strengths, and move towards living a fulfilled and contented life.
