Fiona graduated with joint honours from London University and did her postgraduate teaching certificate at the London Institute of Education, specializing in pastoral care and languages. As a young high school teacher she gained her certificate as an educational counselor with the College of Preceptors. Then followed twenty-one years of working in high schools - this included pioneering an inclusion unit for adolescents with emotional and behavioural issues and designing a whole school emotional literacy programme for staff and students. Her work gained national recognition and was written up in the Education Guardian. Following the completion of a Masters in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica she became licensed in the UK as a psychotherapist with the BACP (British Association of Counselors and Psychotherapists). She is now in private practice in Santa Monica, California, and also works internationally with clients via phone and skype.
Fiona’s approach is person-centred and psychodynamic. She creates a safe space in which clients are able to speak freely about their inner and outer landscape. Vulnerable thoughts and feelings that have been pushed out of conscious awareness are allowed to surface. She also incorporates attention to how thought creates reality and uses the Three Principles, a new approach to the understanding of mind, thought and consciousness. Her work is characterised by empathy, intuitiveness and humour.
