Fiona Ball MBACP
Experience and qualifications
I am a qualified counsellor registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I follow the BACP code of ethics and professional standards. I trained at the Minster Centre in London and I am an Integrative and relational therapist.
I have experience of working in GP settings in South London, the University of Surrey’s wellbeing service and the Minster Centre Low-Cost therapy service. I previously volunteered as a Refugee Mentor at Terrence Higgins Trust.
I have worked and volunteered for a range of health care and community-based charities for the past 14 years.
What I offer
I provide long-term and short-term therapy at my practice in Wokingham which is within easy reach of Bracknell, Binfield, Twyford and surrounding villages. I offer a safe and confidential space to be heard and listened to, helping you to navigate emotional challenges and explore your feelings. Counselling is an opportunity to reflect on both current and past events and make some sense of them, together. Counselling can bring a sense of safety and security and an increased ability to manage the challenges you face, not just now but into the future.
Please contact me to arrange an initial appointment. The first appointment is an opportunity for us to meet and to understand more about you and your needs. If we decide to work together, we will meet weekly, usually at the same time each week. This might be open-ended or for a fixed number of sessions. We will discuss this together.
Approach and philosophy on counselling and psychotherapy
As an Integrative Counsellor, I am influenced by a range of psychotherapeutic thought including humanistic, psychodynamic and body psychotherapy and draw upon these approaches in my work with clients.
I work relationally which means that relationship is at the heart of our work. Therapy can offer an opportunity to better understand how we relate to others and can offer the chance to try new and different ways of relating
