Fiona Sinclair. MBACP. Registered Counsellor and Psychoptherapist
Hi my name is Fiona and I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and I work within their ethical framework and boundaries.
I see individual people and couples with various issues for example bereavement, emotional difficulties , depression, addiction, suicidal thoughts, abuse, self harm, divorce, anger, low self-esteem and many more. I also specialise in life long conditions which are at times over whelming and debilitating including Diabetes, Asthma, Epilepsy and Parkinsons to name but a few.
Therapy can be a support at difficult times in our lives and helps us to regain clarity. It is a safe and confidential space where we can work together exploring feelings and thoughts to gain better insight and understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs .Through the process of talking and listening therapy we can find emotional healing to ultimately ensure we live a more enriching and fulfilling life.
I offer a dedicated, compassionate, empathetic support in a safe non-judgemental space which is a strictly confidential environment to work through your presenting issues.
I am a Psychodynamically trained counsellor so my approach is based on the understanding that difficult past experiences can continue to effect the way we feel and behave in the present.. I have also completed Cognitive Behavioural Training so at times I may use a more pragmatic approach.
Understanding how hard it can be to make contact with a counsellor please feel free to call or email me in confidence so I can answer any questions or fears you may have. Alternatively we can arrange to meet for a one off session without commitment to explore your situation and to see if you feel that therapy would be beneficial to you.

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.
