There are many reasons why you might be looking into therapy.
You might be here because you’re struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression, stress or low self-esteem, or perhaps you have been through a relationship breakdown, bereavement or traumatic experience. It might be due to something that has happened recently or events that are more connected with your past. Life may feel difficult or even overwhelming. Or maybe you aren’t really sure what’s wrong but you know things need to change.
Our reasons for coming to therapy are as individual as we are.
What’s essential is that you find a therapist who you feel comfortable with and who works at your pace. However, it can be difficult and frustrating to navigate your way through all the options and therapy jargon out there. So, put simply, I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to talk through what’s going on for you.
We’ll work together to develop clarity, insight and understanding, and build a way forward that takes you in the positive direction you want to go in.
Hello, I’m Fiona, a north London based counsellor and psychotherapist. I help people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationships (whether personal or professional), self-esteem, stress, problems at work, intrusive thoughts, identity, bereavement, meaning and purpose – among other challenges.
While I’m originally from Oxford, I moved to London well over a decade ago and have since pursued a career in both therapy and publishing. Combining the two, I have written, produced and published a number of books on wellbeing and mental health, including a series of bestselling books with the mental health charity Mind. We all have mental health just as we have physical health, and these books help you give yours the respect and care it deserves.
I practice an integrative model of counselling, which means that I use a combination of different approaches and therapy styles that can be tailored to your needs. As a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), I am a fully qualified therapist and work within their ethical framework.
If you’d like more information about me or the way I work, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Drop me an email or give me a ring and we can arrange a time to get together for an initial 50-minute consultation. That initial consultation gives us a chance to meet one another and discuss how we could work together. It’s where you can talk about what you want to achieve in therapy and ask any questions that you might have – although do feel free to email me with queries before we meet.
Therapy is then normally once a week at a set time. Each session is 50 minutes long. We can agree to a fixed number of sessions or take an open-ended approach. This is something that we can discuss in the initial consultation and come back to at any time during therapy.
£50 per 50-minute session
I have some reduced-fee slots available. Please get in touch for more details.
