In our sessions, Fion never fails to navigate sensitive issues with tact and hold space for anything brought up without judgement, alleviating my initial apprehension and worries before beginning therapy. Her empathy and openness have led to me to be more willing to share and to be more receptive of the ways in which we approach areas of concern even though they might be tough. While she is upfront about how the process will not be easy, her affirmations and encouragements have made it a little less daunting. To date, we have worked though/are working through a fair number of things and I always appreciate how she takes the time to ensure I understand what she is trying to convey, and that I am present as much as possible, especially during the more emotionally gruelling sessions. Moreover, as an extremely perceptive person, Fion is always attuned to signs of unease no matter how minute, pointing them out before I even notice them myself. Although we have only been working together for a short amount of time, she has managed to gradually bring about more self-awareness in me through our sessions and homework. A resourceful, affable, and meticulous person, the amount of care Fion puts into her work is evident and thus enables her to achieve effective emotional connection.
