Fiona Austin Integrative psychotherapist , W10
UPDATE: Health Anxiety - complimentary call and online therapy offered for your ease and convenience.
The skills of listening and hearing your story are everything, no matter what style of therapy is undertaken. It's where the release into ease begins. My philosophy for my clients is 'More than just Listening' as there’s so much more to a person’s problem or challenge than listening. I like to take a full picture of what's going on in your world. So often we think there's something wrong with us .. when it's actually your environment, your situation. We work together on making your world work for you and making your change last.
I aim to provide an easy going environment to effect change to your story. My practice rooms are comfy and private. Also we can do walk and talk sessions in the park and of course, for your ease I also work on line, on the phone and we can text between sessions if you need greater support. It's all part of what I offer for your way to heal, to change, to unearth possibilities.
All therapy or coaching is about change. But just one change can bring so many others. It's like a tumble of positive things start happening. For example: freed from an anxiety, you are opened up to confidence and a possible way forward, a new job, friends, travel, romance and sleeping well. And that’s just the begining.
Things people have said
'Everything was dark, before I met with Fiona, nothing felt possible - she really did make me see light'. 'I didn't know what to expect, but it was just like being with a friend, but in a strange way, easier. I was fully me'. In the lockdown - I was honoured to have helped many people out of their fear in particular one lady said 'I'd been looking at a tree outside my window for six weeks .. I can't believe it, that with Fiona, just over the phone I went to my door and stepped outside and touched that tree’. Possiblility is everywhere. I help you find it.
All things anxiety - social, relations, work and sleep. The challenge of modern living including social media. I love helping people with Insomnia - sleep well. I also enjoy helping people get over bad breakups and relationship challenges.
I work with adults and teenagers.
• Anxiety, Stress, Confidence.
• Workplace Wellbeing. Particularly if screen time is a big part of your day.

I precedes everything with a complementary phone call to answer all your questions. All of our sessions are if you choose to visit in person are undertaken in comfortable private rooms and when the weather's nice walk and talk sessions are offered in near by parks.

Training and qualifications
In terms of qualifications - experience of over 17 years is the one that says the most. However there's also qualifications in Positive Psychology, CBT and Counselling, which have been built upon over time to to include Life Coaching, Online Counselling, Image work, Hypnotherapy, NLP, and Outdoor Therapy.
Outdoor or Nature Therapy is an optional addition applied in supporting the NHS's initiative for 'Social or Lifestyle Prescribing'. This is where you are supporting issues in a non medical way. It's has an effect of de - stressing and reducing anxiety and depression, simply by talking outside of a clinical environment. Very often it helps with people who want to come off anti-depressants. It's also very suitable for children as well as adults. Fiona also trains therapists to take their therapy outside see www.Naturesense.info
When I first saw Fiona anxiety was just part of my life and I didn't care much about anything. Now it's hard to explain, I just feel so much happier and just don't think about anxiety. BH
I was worried about going back to work after having a family. I'm now working and no longer conflicted. My family life is all the richer and my children and husband more relaxed. DS
I'm pill free! Hurrah! LDF (on getting off anti-depressants)
The favourite part of my time with Fiona was our meetings in the park. Who knew it could make such a change? SA
