Fiona has training in a number of approaches including person-centred, psychodynamic, gestalt, existential therapy, CBT, mindfulness, anxiety and stress management.  She draws on these approaches as appropriate to each individual.

She works with adults (over 18) suffering from emotional and psychological distress and has extensive experience working with both men and women.  There are many reasons for distress some of which are (but not limited to) anxiety, panic attacks, depression, suicidality, abuse, trauma, self-esteem, sexuality, relationships, bereavement.

Fiona works mainly from a humanistic and holistic perspective.  She is interested in supporting clients to connect or reconnect to all aspects of the self: body, emotions, psyche, intellect, spirit and social interaction.  This facilitates the potential for increased self-awareness, self-acceptance and personal growth.  Working in this way can help clients build their resources for coping with life and finding solutions to their problems.

Fiona provides a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment so clients can explore and talk about what they find most difficult in their lives.
