Kellyanne Fitzgibbon Adv. Dip. Couns MBACP | Women's Counsellor
Hello, my name is Kellyanne and I specialise in working specifically with Women.
I understand it can feel daunting to seek support with a personal challenge and taking that first step isn’t easy - but sometimes you want to be heard, really heard, to have someone to talk to and be listened to without being judged or told what to do.
Every woman I work with is unique and no single approach suits all people or issues. I use both person-centred and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) approaches, this is often described as an 'Integrative' approach.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious or upset, why not send me a message and we can arrange a day/time that suits to have an informal chat about what’s going on for you just now. I will listen, ask questions and try to understand what life means for you.
I am a BACP registered counsellor with over 13 years experience working in a variety of areas within the NHS. Accredited by the Foundation for Infant Loss and Qualified in both Person Centred & Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Typical Areas of focus:
Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Family Issues, Feeling Sad, Low self-esteem, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Attacks, Phobias, Stress, Suicidal Thoughts and more...

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).

This is a no pressure appointment for us to explore the reasons that have brought you to seek counselling and lasts up to 30 mins either online or by telephone.
