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.
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.
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.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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.
