Do you suffer from high levels of anxiety, self-doubt, and a tendency to be self-critical, blaming yourself for the difficulties you face? Maybe you have high standards, are a perfectionist, work hard, and are ambitious to achieve. However, challenges around relationships, anxiety, work stress, and trauma can feel overwhelming and you feel 'stuck'. No-one wants problems to impact on people we love, our work performance, or our mental health. I empower you to find calm, strength, confidence and courage to enhance your life. I work with individual adults-not couples- and also teenagers. Contact me for a free consultation.

I work with adults and young people (16+). My clients come for a range of reasons. I have experience working in a range of settings with clients who have different goals/needs. However, most of my experience is with clients who have experienced trauma. Usually this work is around supporting clients to work through or process the things that cause them distress, and exploring what living more fully or meaningfully looks like, so that they are less impacted by things that have happened in the past. I welcome all enquiries, and I welcome students and trainee therapists.

Hello I'm Fiona, I'm an accredited counsellor/psychotherapist currently providing online sessions. Life can be hard sometimes and we can often find ourselves feeling alone with our thoughts and feelings and unsure of the way forward. In sessions we work together to understand these often complex thoughts and feelings and find ways to understand, process and alter them. By having the support of therapy you will have a safe, confidential space separate to your life to explore your difficulties, whether you consider these big or small problems they can be shared and made sense of together.

Let’s face it, shit happens. Life can change in the blink of an eye, or our choices lead us down a merry path of disappointment. Are you at a standstill, or chasing round in circles? Is it difficult to see a way through on your own? It can help to share and offload some of those burdens with someone who has your back. Therapy is an experiential process and it really helps to have someone whose job is to listen alongside.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
