Hello my name is Fiona and I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist 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 16 years. I started my counselling career working for the Samaritans where I gained valuable experience working with a variety of client issues. I have worked counselling 16 to 18-year-olds for a local school and have been a volunteer counsellor for CRUSE Bereavement Care for the last four years working with ages 8 years  to adults.
