K. Fiona Phillips BSc (Hons) Psych, Adv. Dip. Counselling, MBACP (Accred.)
I am a professional, BACP Accredited counsellor/psychotherapist, working in my own private practice. I work with young people aged 12 years and over, adults and couples. I have experience with a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, abuse, bereavement and loss and many other challenging situations. Equality is very important to me, I welcome those of any disability, race, religion, sexuality or gender.
As a Humanistic Counsellor I primarily use a person-centred approach to my work. Our sessions would take the direction that you choose. I would work alongside you to provide a compassionate, open, non-judgemental space to explore your concerns and enable you in your process of self-discovery and change. I also use the more creative Gestalt techniques alongside Transactional Analysis and Mindfulness and focussing approaches when relevant and helpful.
The relationship between counsellor and client is of great importance to the success of our work. I offer a free initial consultation to provide a no obligation opportunity for us to meet and explore the possibility of working together. Any contact or discussion is completely confidential.
I hope this information has been useful. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call me or email me through the form on this website. Thank you for your interest, I look forward to hearing from you.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
