My name is Fay Naylor and I am a qualified Counsellor, working in private practice.

My background is varied, but I have spent much time in the Social Care industry, working within the fostering and adoption arena. I have worked with vulnerable children and young adults with learning disabilities, and mentored survivors of domestic abuse.

I have extensive experience working with bereaved clients and consider this to be one of my specialisms.

I counsel for a wide variety of issues, including anxiety and depression. People often don’t know what brings them to counselling – if this is you, I can help you to find some answers.

I am honest and straight talking. I have good humour and communicate easily with others, in a non-judgmental and empathetic manner.

I have many hobbies outside of working hours including walking, running and reading.

Choosing the right counsellor for you is an important part of moving forward. I hope that this helps to answer any questions you have about me, but you can always contact me if you want any further information.
