Fiona Armstrong

Counsellor

Life is full of change, whether we choose it or not. Sometimes change is imposed on us and we struggle to adapt. Sometimes we know we need to make changes in our lives, but we don’t know how.

In my work as a counsellor, I’ve been privileged to see at first hand how, with the right support and understanding, my clients have been able to change and develop in ways that feel right for them.

As your therapist, I’ll bring all my training and life experience to help you grow through the challenges that life brings. I offer a warm, welcoming space in which I’ll support you with compassion, curiosity and insight. Together we can build a relationship that will help you understand and accept yourself more fully and move forward in your life. I approach all my work with a sense of hope and possibility.

I’m experienced in working with people struggling with anxiety and depression, or in mental health crisis. I have supported clients facing loss, bereavement, illness, family difficulties and separation. I’ve worked in university counselling, helping students through a wide range of issues. I also have over a decade of experience in supporting people with workplace and career challenges.

My Postgraduate Diploma in counselling is from the University of Edinburgh, where I trained in both the person-centred and psychodynamic approaches. I also hold Honours and Master’s degrees in law. I am a member of COSCA and work within their strict code of ethics.
