Hello, my name is Fiona Burton and I have 15 years of experience of working with families and individuals who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. Thank you for taking the time to read about how I might be able to help.
I know it can be daunting and confusing trying to decide which therapist or type of therapy is right for you at this particular point in your life. I understand that and so offer a free initial telephone consultation to help you decide if you are comfortable talking to me, and to help me decide if I am able to offer you the help that you need at this time.
Tel: 07988 354635. Email: [email protected]
My inspiration for doing this work was born out of my own need to overcome depression and anxiety and bring about changes to enable me to cope and lead a more fulfilling life.
I initially trained at the University of Warwick, in Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy. I then decided to expand the therapy that I could offer by training as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and also completing training in NLP and Life Coaching.
I offer face to face therapy locally in Hinckley, or online via Zoom.
Do any of the following resonate with you?
• You’re feeling stressed and anxious and it’s having an impact on your quality of life.
• You’re scared you might feel like this forever.
• You think, “Other people seem to be able to cope but I can’t, so there must be something wrong with me.”
• You’re feeling lost, hopeless and alone. There is nobody that really seems to ‘get it.’
• You’re tired of having to act like everything is ok, when inside you feel lost and exhausted. You are fed up of having to wear a mask.
• You’re having difficulty in one or more of your relationships and don’t know how to improve things.
• You feel like you’re trying your best but it never seems to be good enough.
If so, then counselling can help. You might dream of feeling calmer and having more ease, space and clarity. When you can lower your anxiety and feel less stressed, it’s easier to hear and trust yourself – to know what you need to take care of yourself AND still get things done. You can create the space to do the things that are important to you in a way that’s satisfying and sustainable.
I have experience of helping many people, just like you, with the following issues:
• Anxiety and low mood
• Relationship difficulties
• Baby loss; infertility; post-natal depression and anxiety
• Bullying: past or current
• Traumatic life events
• Low self-esteem
• Diagnosis of illness or disability in the family
• Loss, grief and betrayal
I can help you gain clarity and an understanding of why you might be feeling the way that you are just now. I will give you the support, patience and time to talk about difficult feelings that you may be finding it hard to express.
Together we can figure out what gives you purpose and what would help you feel more fulfilled. We can identify your strengths and core values – and learn how to draw on these to help you feel empowered rather than overwhelmed. By helping you increase your self-awareness we can work towards lowering your anxiety levels and resolve past difficulties or trauma.
Counselling is the ultimate in self-care and this investment in yourself is a great way to shift from survival-based living to thriving, with more ease, connection and joy in your everyday life.

Hypnotherapy and NLP
This type of therapy tends to be more short-term, depending on the person and type of issue involved. The readiness and ability to be hypnotised varies considerably from one person to another and hypnotherapy sometimes requires a number of sessions in order to achieve meaningful results.
However, combined with the science of NLP, stopping smoking for example is usually achieved in just one single session. Walk in a smoker, walk out a non- smoker.
If any of the following apply to you, then I am able to help:
• Fears & Phobias
• Stopping Smoking
• Deep Relaxation (for coping with stress)
• Building Confidence
• Weight Loss
• Stopping unhelpful habits (e.g. nail biting, teeth grinding, hair pulling)
Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is not a state of deep sleep. It does however involve the induction of a relaxing ‘trance-like’ state, but when in it, you are actually in a heightened state of awareness, concentrating entirely on the hypnotherapist’s voice.
In this state, the conscious mind is in neutral and the sub-conscious mind is revealed. I am then able to suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptations to you, the seeds of which can become firmly planted. Progress can only be made by re- programming the subconscious mind so that deep-seated instincts and beliefs are challenged, dissolved, or even re-routed to something healthier.
