About me

Anxiety Specialist -EMDR (BLAST) qualified therapist

Are you feeling stressed and anxious and it's having an impact on your quality of life?

Are panic attacks, flashbacks or unresolved trauma causing you to feel hopeless and isolated because nobody around really 'gets it?'

Does it feel like you are going to be like this forever?

Hypnotherapy could help you to heal and release your past; to make the changes that you wish to see in your life, by naturally harnessing the power of your subconscious mind.

"The sessions have helped anxiety levels have reduced and I have been able to have a better relationship with family members because of therapy. I would definitely recommend Fiona- she was amazing and helped me beyond my expectations." Barbara,  Anxiety client

"I am forever grateful to Fiona for her support, challenge, kindness and professionalism. Without my weekly Zoom session, I wouldn't have found the strength to control my OCD, anxiety and burnout. Fiona taught me self-care, reflection and relaxation. A combination of hypnotherapy and counselling helped me to learn how to manage my anxiety and OCD. I cannot recommend Fiona enough and I am thankful that I started my journey with her as I have my life back." Health anxiety client,  Leicestershire

My inspiration and passion for doing this work was born out of my own need to overcome trauma, depression and anxiety and bring about changes to enable me to cope and lead a more fulfilling life.

I offer a compassionate, safe, professional and confidential service. I understand that undertaking therapy can be a bit daunting therefore I offer a free, confidential initial consultation over the phone or Zoom to help put you at ease.

I am regularly featured as a monthly guest on BBC Radio Leicester 'Table Talk' or to discuss mental health related topics.

Further information

I welcome neuro-diverse clients and have combined ADHD myself (later-life diagnosis.) I treat the people who come to me for help as I would wish myself or my loved ones to be treated.

Before training to be a therapist, I set up and managed a befriending service in Leicestershire called Face2face which offered volunteer befriends for parents of children with special needs, to give them emotional support. As part of this role, I also set up support groups for dads and grandads and delivered sleep workshops to help parents cope with their children's sleep issues.

I offer sessions on Zoom or in a welcoming, comfortable therapy room in the centre of Hinckley which has easy parking and level access.
