I’m a strong believer that, in the words of Nelson Mandela “there is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living” – yet sometimes life is really quite tough and we find ourselves struggling and this ideal seems far from our reality. You may find yourself feeling emotionally overwhelmed, anxious or lonely. Or, you may have been struggling for some time and haven’t found the motivation to address it but now that struggle may be feeling a little bigger.

Life is full of ups and downs, however sometimes for any number of reasons we are unable to get back to the person we know we are or want to be and it can make it more difficult than usual to enjoy and live life the way we would like to. Exploring those issues with someone who you can trust to help you find your way can be so beneficial.

Are past experiences or traumas impacting your life? Do you feel like you should be “over it” by now, but the past still keeps affecting the present? My name is Fi and I can help you unravel the hurt from past trauma. I'm not your typical therapist. I've been known to drop a well-placed swear word or three, because sometimes life's challenges call for a hearty dose of real talk. I specialise in Trauma Counselling but see clients with a wide range of issues. Trauma can be an overwhelming and complex experience, affecting every aspect of our lives.

I am a Relationship and Psychosexual Therapist with 30 plus years of experience. I also offer clinical supervision to colleagues. Counselling can actively improve a couple's communication and potentially make sense of unhelpful patterns of communication and/or behaviour. Clients say that their relationships are stuck in a rut and that the communication and often their sex life, that once was easy, is now fraught with difficulties. Often people struggle with their sexual difficulty in silence, feeling embarrassed and ashamed, unable to discuss their issues with anyone. I can help and guide you through this difficult place.

Life can be hard to handle - tough and confusing at any age or stage. Relationships, events, success, failure, change, gain and loss turn our lives upside down at any moment, disrupting our "normal" destabilising us and impacting our physical and mental health and general wellbeing. And when we don't choose what happens to us, eg abuse, accident, addiction, bereavement, deprivation, divorce, illness, money troubles, prejudice, redundancy, relocating, it can be doubly hard to adjust and adapt, to find a way through grief and trauma to emotional survival and personal growth.

We all can benefit from talking to someone. Counselling is a way for you to work through your issues without someone giving you advice but encourage you to be able to explore some solutions as what is best for you. Well - meaning loved ones may think they are giving support, but often we need to work our issues out for ourselves and understand and be comfortable with what is right for us. Speaking to a counsellor gives you the space to do this, and I will truly listen to you in a non-judgemental manner, to enable you to make changes and help you find the answers you are seeking.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
