About me

Hello, I’m Fiona. I work with people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationships (whether personal or professional), feeling sad, self-esteem, self confidence, stress, problems at work, identity, bereavement, meaning and purpose – among other challenges.

But the truth is that our reasons for coming to therapy are as individual as we are.

What’s essential is that you find a therapist who you feel comfortable with and who works at your pace. However, it can be difficult and frustrating to navigate your way through all the options and therapy jargon out there. So, put simply, I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to talk through what's going on for you.

We’ll work together to develop clarity, insight and understanding, and build a way forward that takes you in the direction you want to go in.

MY APPROACH

I practice an integrative model of counselling, which means that I use a combination of different approaches and therapy styles. As a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), I am a fully qualified therapist and work within their ethical framework.

NEXT STEPS

Drop me an email or give me a call if you have any questions or would like to book an initial session. In that first session, we'll talk about what you want to get out of therapy and how we might work together. You can then decide if you want to continue. You can also find further information on my website, www.fionaslatertherapy.com.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified counsellor and hold a CPCAB Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and CPCAB Certificate in Counselling Studies. I am also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

I have worked in an agency setting as well as private practice, and in my publishing career have been involved with writing and producing a number of books on wellbeing and mental health, including a series of bestselling books with the mental health charity Mind. We all have mental health just as we have physical health, and these books help you give yours the respect and care it deserves.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

My practice is exclusively online, which means that therapy sessions are conducted over the internet, usually via Zoom. Therapy sessions are held in precisely the same way as traditional in-person therapy but with the added flexibility that they can take place wherever you are. Online therapy can be particularly helpful if you have a busy schedule, often travel or could benefit from the reduction in travel time.
