Hello my name is Fiona and I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor working in private practice in Deeping St.James.
I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space for clients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and emotions and support clients to find a way forward.
I have been a qualified Holistic Therapist running my own business for over 20 years. I have 11 years of experience, starting my counselling career with The Samaritans where I gained valuable experience working with a variety of client issues. I went on to work as a school counsellor working with 12 to 18-year-olds for a local school and Young Persons Counselling Services and volunteered for CRUSE Bereavement Care working with ages 8 years to adults.
