Fiona is one of our qualified and experienced counsellors.
Hi, I’m Fiona and this is my faithful pooch Jodi.
I am a fully qualified Person centered therapist for over 6 years now. PC therapy has been my main modality however, throughout the years I have enjoyed growing my skill set to enable me to work with my clients in a number of ways. This also includes having Jodi with me for sessions. I quickly realised the difference that having Jodi present in sessions, especially with children makes, as pet therapy dogs offer a pleasant distraction by providing a comfort, calmness or even playfulness during the difficulties of talking through your issues.
I have a wealth of experience working with clients from the age of 7 to 70!
Some of my additional knowledge has been gained from the following :-
- Theraplay Level 1
- Cruise bereavement tool box
- Drawing and talking
- MHFA instructor (Mental Health First Aid)
- MBSR (Mindfulness based stress reduction)
- MISP Paws b (Mindfulness in schools project)
- Solution focused therapy
My happy place is at home surrounded by family and friends and usually involves plenty or eating and drinking.
