“Going to counselling has been one of the toughest and biggest decision in my opinion, the first step is always the hardest. It was not easy sharing my experiences and my flaws to a complete stranger at first but Fion made it a lot easier to deal with it. She gave many valuable insights and exercises so that i can better understand the situation and handle it better than I would have before. The first step is never easy but I can say for sure that she would be a great person to start this journey with.”

“It’s a pleasure to get to know Fion and have her as my counsellor although our time we had together wasn’t so long. In the beginning I was still afraid to open up and share more about my own struggles, but gradually Fion help me to slowly feel a bit more comfortable and assured me that everything that I shared is kept safe so I don’t have to worry so much.
Being able to relate and share a chemistry with my counsellor is something I value a lot and that has made my counselling journey with Fion a fruitful one.”

“When I first came to Fion, I had hit rock bottom. I’d never felt so helpless or sad in my life before. Although it was a tough season, I think it helped me to treasure the good times even more. I have learnt and grown considerably since I first began to take care of my mental health. My relationships have improved and I have a deeper understanding of myself now. Like what healthy boundaries, healthy relationships look like. No longer do I hold onto unrealistic expectations of myself especially in relation to my family members. It has been very freeing to let go despite the accompanying grief.”

“I’m very thankful for my time with you even though we only had a few short sessions. I'm glad to report that I've since improved quite a lot both emotionally and mentally (at least i'd like to think so, haha) the meditation-like breathing techniques you taught me were very helpful to this day – I actually went to explore it more by attending meditation classes recently too and it's been invaluable.”

"On the journey to learning more about myself, Fion has been a good support to me. She is one who is observant, sincere, calm and most importantly, she is someone who listens even when I am silent. She creates a safe space for me to speak freely on my thoughts - without any judgement.
With her expertise and efforts (on both parties), I’ve managed to deal with my challenges better and see things from different dimension.

"Thank you for the past 3+ years. Time really flies! It seems like just yesterday that I went to see you (Fion) for the first time. It was such a relief that I could click with you and felt heard for the first time in my life. While I know that people are mostly well meaning, their response have often made me feel worse. Thankfully I didn’t feel that way when you counselled me.

"I'm very thankful for the counselling services provided by Fion. From the very first session, she explored my counselling goals with me and was intentional in finding out exactly what I wanted to achieve. She also emphasised that I could give feedback at any time if the session was not helpful or what she was saying was not accurate to my experiences. This gave me a lot of confidence and helped ensure that we were on the same page. During the sessions, Fion does a lot of processing and mini activities which may not make sense at first, but provides a lot of handles that can be practically applied in daily life. Overall, I felt that Fion understood and cared for my mental and emotional well-being, and was able to provide me with tools that enabled me to deal with various struggles outside of the counselling sessions."

"Initially, I was hesitant to seek counselling as the concept of sharing my emotions and experiences with a complete stranger seemed daunting to me. Taking the first step was hard but with Fion the beginning of my healing journey was made smooth and seamless. She has been gentle and reassuring with her approach, allowing me to be fully comfortable as sessions progressed.
With her guidance I’ve been able to understand and better cope with my emotions. Being able to regulate my emotion appropriately has allowed me to form better connections with the people in my life. I’m immensely grateful to have started this recovery journey with Fion."
