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. Due to the Covid 19 situation, I am currently offering video call or telephone counselling sessions. I offer reduced rates for individuals experiencing financial hardship.
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 time 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, 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 else with a mental health issue. Clients also sometimes come to see me because of family relationship difficulties or work related stress.
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, including those bereaved by suicide. 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.

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.
