About me

If you are finding you need someone to talk to about your problems, I will provide a safe confidential and caring therapeutic relationship in which you will feel emotionally supported while you explore whatever issues you want to bring to our sessions. Whether they are current issues or from the past, I will give you a safe place to talk.

You may have been told you would benefit from CBT for a specific problem such as anxiety, or you may not know what you want, but feel you need to get things out of your head and talk things through with someone who isn't involved or affected by the issue that's affecting you. Please click on my website above for more information and don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions.

As a fully qualified BACP registered counsellor I have a background in person-centred counselling, Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). I work with people in both short term and long term therapeutic relationships and also provide services for Employee Assistance Programmes.

I work from home in a comfortable dedicated counselling room in Lytham St Annes, and can also do local home visits for clients who may find it hard to get out with flexible weekday appointments between 8.30 and 3.30pm. I offer an initial free of charge 30 minute consultation to enable you to find out whether I am the right counsellor for you, and if you decide to go ahead, further sessions will last an hour each. We will have regular reviews so that you can ensure you are getting what you need out of the counselling process.

I have worked in personal development and counselling roles for over 15 years in voluntary organisations such as the Citizens Advice Bureaux and women’s aid organisations. I run my own private practice and also work for a major charitable organisation in the Fylde.


“I would recommend the service to anybody who felt they needed this kind of support. It helped me regain my confidence and self-belief.”

“From our first meeting I felt comfortable and safe in the knowledge I could “let it out” without being judged or pressurised in any way – and always came away feeling more positive and stronger. Thank you!”

“It has helped bring closure and focus to my issues and let me have freedom in so many aspects of my life.”

“Without detailing the reasons for my counselling I would like to comment on how very helpful, kind, reassuring and knowledgeable I found Fiona to be. Her endless patience and understanding and guidance has helped me enormously. Our meetings were always held in total privacy in extremely comfortable surroundings.”

“I would certainly recommend the service to my friends. I have felt valued and listened to.”

Massively useful, has helped me a lot moving forward to university.”

“I have to admit to being a little sceptical about counselling at first, how wrong I was… Fiona was so attentive and understanding and made me feel comfortable from the start through various issues. Wouldn’t hesitate to see Fiona again should the need arise.”
