How can I find out if counselling is for me?

If you would like to book an assessment session with me, please contact me on telephone: 07791 798334 or complete the contact form. During our first session, I will carry out a detailed assessment so we can work out how best to meet your needs.

How long are the sessions?

Generally the assessment and counselling sessions are 50 minutes long.


All sessions are confidential. In line with best practice, I will ask you for your GP’s details in the assessment session. If I have serious concerns about the risk of you harming either yourself or others, I may have to inform your GP. I would endeavour to speak to you about this first.

Code of Ethics

I abide by the code of ethics of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). [Link to website]

What is a tailor-made treatment plan?

I am trained and experienced in using many different approaches of therapy. During the assessment, we will discuss which approaches are most suitable to meet your specific needs. We will also discuss how many sessions you may need to resolve your difficulties.

  1. Hi Fiona,
    I am interested in receiving training for EMDR and found your details on the association’s website. I live in Addlestone, so I am very near to Walton-on Thames. I will be starting my MSc in Psychology in September and will then have my pending British Psychological Association accreditation. Could you please let me know if I would be able to embark on EMDR training with you and all of the details re fees, dates etc?
    Many thanks and best wishes, Lillian
