As a psychotherapist, I have gained experience helping people from all over the world on issues related to anxiety, stress, low mood, low self esteem, relationships, attachment, parenting, pregnancy, anger and sleep problems.
Seeking help or therapy is not always an easy decision. Most of the times this decision implies undertaking a process of reflection and the awareness that something feels off - or is simply nor alright - and that pain or emotional discomfort are involved. Psychotherapy can be the answer as it represents a tool to better deal with the important moment in which we come to terms with who we are and we allow ourselves to change. It can help you nurturing your resources and overcoming the barriers that are blocking you from reaching what you would like.

I also offer EMDR and CBT for Insomnia .
Perhaps you're feeling anxious or overwhelmed, or struggling to make sense of your life, whether it's because of a recent event, or a build up of issues and feelings over time that are getting in the way of your relationships, your personal and professional life. Maybe you've been trying to cope and "get on with it", but that's not working. In my experience, deciding to get curious about what's going on, face some challenging issues and think about how you'd like things to be different, with someone who will listen without judgement, can be life changing.

Are you tired of battling against chronic pain or illness every day? Maybe you feel that your life is being controlled by it. This could have led you to feel down or anxious or it may have affected your sleep . It can be hard for other people to understand your illness or pain, resulting in feeling isolated from friends and family. Maybe pain has stopped you from continuing with a hobby or keeping on top of the housework. In this position you may be wondering how you can live a valued and fulfilling life.

Working in several NHS Trusts, a specialist bereavement service and private practice has meant helping people overcome a range of difficulties, from low mood and self esteem, to stress, insomnia , worry and social anxiety, panic, phobias and OCD, or coping with traumatic events and loss, adjusting to health conditions or parenthood.
None of us are immune to the experience life throws at us and sometimes we can develop difficulties with depression, anxiety or both. This often affects how we think, feel and act, falling into negative cycles that can maintain problems. I specialise in using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to help you identify and break these down so you can move forward positively in your life. Where helpful, I integrate other psychological approaches which sit well with CBT, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy, to tailor a course of therapy which will support you best.

Whether it’s being caught in endless worries and ‘what ifs’, having painful memories of difficult past experiences, or going through a transition that has you feeling a little lost, life has a way of throwing things at you that increase anxiety, low mood, demotivation and impact relationships. This might affect you physically, increasing stress and tension, disturbing your sleep and appetite or preventing you from living a life that feels aligned with what’s most important to you. I am here to provide you with a safe, non-judgemental and encouraging space in which to understand and navigate a way out of this.

Would you like help after a difficult life experience? Perhaps you are finding it difficult to sleep or to concentrate on things that you can normally do without difficulty? You may have been through a difficult experience recently or in the past and know exactly what you would like some help with. Equally, you might be feeling really down or anxious in general or in particular situations and not know why. It could be that something that happened to you a long time ago is still causing difficulties.

The constant nagging of “what if”, “why?” or “if only”; knots in your stomach, breath catching in the throat, unable to focus, unable to sleep , feeling like something bad is going to happen any time? Anxiety and depression limit and impact every aspect of your life, leaving you constantly scared and tired. Even when you know that there is nothing to fear, or that the trauma is in the past, this knowledge does not help. This is because our brains have evolved for survival, not for happiness. This means that our brain does not discriminate between real and imaginary dangers; habitually overreacting and overwhelming, stealing hope.

Are you stressed, suffer disrupted sleep , have mood swings or generally feel out of sorts? There may be other areas, such as relationships, work, health and well-being that you wish to discuss and get an independent view on. Speaking to a professional, with no link to your regular life, can provide the safety and freedom so that you can fully express yourself. This can bring clarity and relief. I will provide support, guidance and an independent view to help you think things through. I am happy to have a chat on the phone so that you get an idea of how it works and for you to hear my voice. We can work time limited or open-ended.

Insomnia : It is terrible to be tossing and turning all night and I will work with you to find the root of your insomnia , be it from childhood or more recently based.
At the moment, I offer online counselling via Zoom or telephone counselling, as I feel it would be unsafe to see clients any other way. I do not have a therapy room to offer you right now and have not been tested for Covid-19, nor had it. I do have many years of experience as a therapist, am a bereavement counsellor, can address your anxieties and can help you to sleep . I also edit and write articles about psychotherapy and am on the editorial board of an online journal, Contemporary Psychotherapy. I have travelled a good deal and feel this adds to my ability to relate to different types of people. Phone for more details.

Is something not quite 'right'? Are you feeling stressed? Anxious? Irritated? Mind racing 100 miles per hour? Rarely a good night sleep ? Feeling down? Self critical? Having disproportionate anger? Numb? Scared? These feelings are not to be quickly 'fixed' with a few quick strategies; they need to be patiently understood because they are an important portal into understanding what needs to be attended to and healed in you, or, perhaps in your environment. They say, "The only way out is through", and I look forward to accompanying you on this journey where you start walking out of your difficulties and thrive.

Specialisations: • Anxiety - workplace, relationships, social, health fears, sleep issues • Self Esteem and Confidence • Work or Life issues - Procrastination, Stress and Burnout .
Right now it's about hope. As a positive psychologist I can help you out of the overwhelm.. there's so much right now! Too much... as well as old issues raising their head, now that we're at home more. • For you - I consider listening and a hearing your story to be paramount. It's often said "there's something about saying it out loud that brings about a shift" and it's true, I've seen it so often. "Fiona's style has been described by clients as 'more than just listening'. 'She is straight talking, informative and balanced but overall has a genuine and kind understanding."

Sleep or Insomnia Counsellors
What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in London from time to time. Chronic insomnia, however, is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up too early. If it takes you thirty minutes or more to fall asleep, or you're awake for thirty minutes or more during the night at least three times a week-for a month or more-you're likely suffering from insomnia.

Insomnia has major effects on mood as well as alertness. It is also a classic symptom of depression.

The most effective treatments for chronic insomnia are behavioural techniques that eliminate sleep anxiety and allow the body's own sleep cycle to kick in. It may require as little as doing nothing. But Sleep specialists in London or counsellors who spesialise in sleep in London, or simply a London sleep counsellor, can help. Likewise, insomnia specialists in London or counsellors who specialise in insomnia in London, or simply a London insomnia counsellor, can help.

Sleep disorders may include sleep apnea, narcolepsy or simply chronic snoring.
