The aim of sessions is to work towards an understanding of the challenges you face and the changes you wish to make. During sessions, you will be the focus of our attentions and I will value you without judgement, as a unique person, an equal. Having been in counselling myself, I have an understanding of the process. It can be a daunting prospect, and I will support you in that journey. I have listed many specialities and whilst I do have experience of working with them, I believe there is more to you than a "diagnosis" or an "issue" so the focus is on you the whole person, and whatever you choose to bring. NOTE - OVER 18'S ONLY

Hi my name is Fiona and I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). If you are feeling anxious, depressed, stressed or overwhelmed then counselling is a safe place where you can share your thoughts and feelings in confidence and without fear of judgement. You may have been struggling for a while and have wanted or tried to talk to friends or family about how you feel, but sometimes that isn't easy or possible. Sometimes we can struggle on alone, putting on a brave face. This is when reaching out for counselling can be really supportive and helpful.

Life can be hard, and sometimes the struggle to make sense of your feelings can seem overwhelming. This is ok. You may be at a point in your life when you feel stuck, and unable to move on, and don't know what to do. This is absolutely ok. You may feel that your life could improve and that you could live it more fully. Definitely ok. You may have noticed you keep repeating unhelpful behaviour patterns. This is ok, too.

My areas of interest are working to assist others to find meaning and direction in times of personal difficulty. As a client you may yearn to have deeper understanding of your inner world and make sense of how it manifests in your life, or maybe you just need to be in a space where you feel cared for and heard – I offer a warm empathic approach, to support feeling safe so to enable you, to journey at your pace to tell your story and express yourself. Counselling can allow you to find awareness of your natural hidden ability to cope, which will support you in managing your life more effectively in relationships and other areas.

Hi there :) Are you looking for support around coming out? Transitioning? Questioning your gender, sexuality or another aspect of your identity? Recovering from experiences of harm? Or perhaps need a safe space where you can feel understood and respected so you can get on with talking about what's going on for you? When we are unable to (safely) be our authentic selves we can experience great stress, anxiety, low mood as well as other challenges. Counselling and an exploratory listening approach such as the one I practice can really help to improve self relationship, reduce distress and isolation & increase well being.

Thank you for checking out my profile. I work mainly with adults and have lengthy experience across a range of issues. Many clients believe that there is something wrong with them or that they are somehow to blame for their circumstances. Most people have more than one issue to work on as often many issues have built up before help is accessed. When clients first engage in counselling they may not be sure what their needs are or what goals they may have, they simply want to feel better. The first step on this journey is to identify the issues that impact negatively and work on them in order to enable further steps forward.

Most people will struggle with depression and/or anxiety at some point in their lives. This past year has sadly made that statement even more true. However, this doesn't mean that we have to stay locked in doom and gloom. I believe that, with support, most people can find a way through troubling issues. I want to offer you a non-judgmental, confidential, safe space to talk. I will work collaboratively with you and we will challenge some of those negative thoughts and feelings. So why not start 'taking care of you' and begin your journey into a better, brighter future.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Whitby are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Whitby then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Whitby, or Child Psychologists in Whitby.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Whitby psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Whitby specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
