Fiona AustinIntegrative psychotherapist
UPDATE: I am now, in addition to online, back seeing clients in person, in my private and spacious rooms. Comfortable, confidential and appropriate distancing has always been and still is in place. I also do walk and talk sessions out in the park.
For you - I consider listening and a hearing your story to be paramount, no matter what type of therapy is undertaken. I also consider your full picture - your circumstances, not just what is troubling you specifically. It's often said "there's something about saying it out loud that brings about a shift" and it's true, I've seen it so often. "Fiona's style has been described by clients as 'more than just listening'. 'She is straight talking, informative and balanced but overall has a genuine and kind understanding."
I aim to provide an easy going environment to effect change to your story. Online you're free to talk to me from your garden or your sofa - It's your time. Also we can do walk and talk sessions in the park and of course. You 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 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, health, fears, relations, procrastination, self esteem, work and sleep. The challenge of modern living can be an issue in itself - including addiction to social media. I love helping people with Insomnia - sleep themselves well.
I also specialise with helping people get over bad breakups and relationship challenges.

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)
