Fiona McMonagle (ReAction Counselling & CBT)
I am a BACP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) offering confidential therapy sessions to individuals seeking counselling. I am a warm and genuine person with a passion for helping others to work through their difficulties so they can make the most of their lives.
My private practice is based in The Hub in Vicar Street, Falkirk. It is very centrally located and is close to Grahamston station.
Seeking counselling is a sign of strength, not weakness. It shows that you have courage and are willing to embark on a journey of change to make the most of you.
CBT is a collaborative therapy between you and your therapist. It focuses on the present, however, if the something from the past is having an effect on you we will explore this. During the first session you will usually be asked to consider what you expect to get from therapy, we will then set a goal so it keeps us focused throughout the sessions. CBT involves looking at the relationship between your thoughts, your emotions and your behaviours - changing either one can have a knock on effect on the others.
I am able to see individuals aged 16 and over.

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.
