I moved to Suffolk 5 years ago and you can read about me below. If you or a friend would like a counselling session or assessment on Skype or Whatsapp – please contact me (fiennesd) or email me.
I work as a Psychodynamic Counsellor/Psychotherapist within the guidelines of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists,with integrity, regular personal development and supervision. I was also a senior counsellor at ChildLine in the UK. I am currently helping parents of teenagers with mental health issues in Suffolk and running my Practice of over 30 years. I am studying CBT and advising people on coping in Covid 19.
I trained originally in couples counselling, completing over 500 hours with Relate. I worked in one of their Crisis Counselling Clinics and have hundreds of hours working with clients behind me. I have worked for many years with young professionals, individuals and couples on a wide variety of problems including depression, anxiety, relationship issues and stress. I am also an experienced consultant in the Arts and Humanities and have worked with many Boards and high level individuals, often in a coaching role.
I worked with my PAT dog (Pet As Therapy) called Monty in hospices and centres for troubled adolescents until he died. Since then I have worked on pet loss and with rescue greyhounds who often need rehabilitation and help with life after racing. I also work with owners with tips and hints on how to deal with difficult dogs – or is it difficult owners?
With the charity ChildLine I worked within a controlled environment answering calls from troubled children on many different issues. I work OnLine via Skype, Whatsapp and email so that I can interact more readily with people all over the world.
I have worked as a charity consultant all over the UK and I have survived both pet loss and different forms of bereavement. I was featured on the BBC’s Mollie Green programme on Animals.
