My name is Mark Fielding and I have been a practising psychotherapist for the past 14 years. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I work with both individuals, couples and groups on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
I started working in private practice around 14 years ago. I have also worked as a Senior Harassment Advisor and Supervisor to the Harassment Advisory Team for a West London Foundation Trust Hospital and more recently as a Relationship Counsellor for Relate. I have previously worked as an NHS manager and also in different roles supporting adults with learning difficulties. Over the last 14 years I have worked with most problems that people can experience, such as but not limited to:
How I Work
I am trained to use different approaches to meet the individual needs of clients and couples. These include psychodynamic (looking at the past and how it is affecting us today), systemic (looking at patterns in relationships), mindfulness (paying attention to our thoughts 'in the moment') and positive psychology (research based techniques to increase happiness and resilience). My therapeutic approach is very down to earth which I hope puts my clients at ease.

I have worked as a one to one counsellor and relationship counsellor to many neurodiverse clients over the years – such as clients with Tourette’s, Asperger’s and PDA, for instance. I have a great deal of experience in this area and welcome neurodiverse individuals and couples.
I also have a particular interest in working with HSPs (highly sensitive people). Please take a look at the Resources page to see my vlog on HSPs.
I have worked with many LGBTQI+ clients and welcome both individuals and couples from the LGBTQI+ community.
I am experienced in working with clients wishing to explore their gender identity.
