Providing Counselling, Clinical Supervision, Outdoor Therapy and Bereavement Support to the people of North Lincolnshire and online.

Welcome to Fox Therapy Services

We provide a confidential space for you to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life

Welcome and thank you for visiting Fox Therapy Services

We are Simon and Sarah Fox, and we're both fully qualified and insured counsellors/therapists. Between us, we have worked in a variety of settings, ranging from family services, youth services, homeless services, child protection, addiction prevention, bereavement support to name but a few, giving us an extensive range of experience supporting people with their mental health.

We welcome you to our website and hope we are able to help you find the support that you are looking for, whether that's with us or another service that is better suited to you.

Our overall aim is to provide a safe, empathic, non-judgemental space for anyone who feels counselling may help them to process life's challenges, difficult emotional experiences and trauma. We are authentic, compassionate people who genuinely care and want to provide therapeutic support that is flexible and fits you as an individual.

Making the decision to see a counsellor is a big step to take - but it can be a positive one. Please read on to find out more about how I could help you.

Our approach

At Fox Therapy we offer a counselling and therapeutic approach that is tailored to your needs as the individual person you are. We genuinely admire your strength and courage to take this step in to what can feel like the unknown, but please know we are here to provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to talk and explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions. With a person-centred approach at the core of what we do, we want you to feel heard, accepted and valued. Person-centred counselling isn't a mask or a uniform we wear just for counselling sessions, it is the authenticity, genuineness, care and compassion we have as Simon and Sarah, as the people we are.

Outdoor Therapy "Walk & Talk"

Outdoor therapy can be whatever you would like it to be really. It can be a place to simply walk and talk, working through the thoughts, feelings and emotions that usually take you to conventional therapy in a room or on the phone etc. It can be a place to sit down and do like the above, just outside. It can also be a place to develop a mindfulness mindset, an exploration of the natural environment and how this can inspire change in your life. We can also do all the above and see what fits you whilst exploring yourself confidentially with Simon, who is there to listen and truly hear you in your time of need.

Sarah specialises in working with clients who come to counselling specifically wanting support if they have suffered from a bereavement or grief in their lives. She has a vast amount of experience working in a hospice environment, helping people express and talk about their grief. Get in touch for an informal chat or book a session

Counselling/Clinical Supervision

We offer counselling support to anyone, anywhere by either Skype, Google Meet, Whatsapp, Zoom etc. We want to be able to make your counselling experience a massively empowering and positive one.

We will strive to meet your needs and help you to feel safe and comfortable in the mode of communication you choose.

Simon offers clinical supervision, giving trainee and qualified counsellors a place to reflect and explore on their practice and work with clients.

Supervision is a formal process of professional support and learning, that contributes to an individuals continued development as a counsellor.

There is not one way to be a counsellor, yes, we abide and work alongside a code of ethics, but we believe it's how you are as a person that has the ability to help people feel accepted, safe and validated.

Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between counselling and therapy?

Ultimately there is no difference, here at Fox Therapy we will use both terms where appropriate, however will always work within a therapeutic framework that is tailored to your needs as a client.

How long will I need to have counselling?

How long a period of counselling lasts will vary from person to person and depend on the depth of the issues you are facing. For some people a couple of sessions helps to bring their problems into focus, and they feel ready to move forward; other problems may require more of an open-ended approach.

We don't put any pressure on you, only advise when asked to do so, your therapy journey is yours and will take the route you choose.

How long will I have to wait for an appointment?

Our aim is to offer a first appointment - known as an initial assessment - within 1-2 weeks. Then we will plan in a following session that is convenient for you and where I have availability. How quickly these sessions can begin will depend on the availability of both parties.

Will everything I say be kept confidential?

Everything that is said within counselling is private - this is one of the main ways counselling and therapy differ from talking to a friend or relative. Once you are comfortable with the format of weekly sessions and the safe space they provide, you will find the freedom to speak in confidence is of great value.

Note that there are some extreme situations where you may be a risk to yourself or others, and there the law requires that I notify an authority; in these cases I may not be able to keep total confidentiality. Breaking confidentiality is very rare though, and only happens after the person concerned has been informed.

Can I bring a friend or relative with me?

Usually we are asked this question by people who are nervous about entering into counselling, or when they are looking for support in coming to see a therapist. This anxiety is understandable, but a key aspect of therapy is that you should feel free to talk about any issues you feel are important to you. Having someone else with you who can be connected those issues makes this opening-up more difficult, so for this reason we do not see clients accompanied by friends or family.
