Fiona Cook BACP Senior Accredited

BACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist (Senior Accredited)
Relationship & Fertility Counsellor
EAP Critical Incident Therapist

Originally selected and qualified with Relate UK in the late 1990s, I trained and qualified as a relationship counsellor with an integrated psychodynamic & systemic foundation; re-qualifying as a Hypno-Psychotherapist in 2010.

As a Senior Accredited member of BACP with over 22 years of psychotherapeutic & counselling practice, I work privately with individuals and couples via telephone or Zoom. My work abides by the good practice guidelines of the respective organizations to which I belong.

In recent years I trained as a Fertility Counsellor with BICA (British Infertility Counselling Association) and find that this area of work draws from my relational and systemic roots.

My practice offers support to individuals and couples, seeking to create an approach specific for each client. Whilst working with the presenting issue, my aim is to help clients strengthen and maintain emotional resilience and a balanced mind-body connection.


Relationships are the core of our society; as an experienced relationship counsellor I offer short term support (3 – 6 sessions) for individuals and couples.


With experience of work in an NHS licensed fertility clinic, I now continue to work privately as a Fertility Counsellor. I offer support to those affected by fertility treatment and relatives who may wish to understand more of its complexities.

As a professional member of the Donor Conception Network, I am particularly interested in, and work closely with those in need of a donor to create their family. This area also supports those wishing to give the gift of donation.

Please be aware that my support is therapeutic; I cannot offer clinical advice but am knowledgeable of the varying procedures and treatments.

Critical Incident Work

As an affiliate of a major EAP organsiation, I attend on-site to support employees affected by a traumatic incident e.g. sudden redundancy, loss of an employee, work accident.
