With over a decade of experience as a trauma therapist and mental health practitioner, I am able to provide counselling and body based therapies. I believe in a holistic approach to therapy, looking at what each client needs, collaborating and adapting my therapy to assist. I connect with clients in an authentic, relational way, ensuring safety and trust are paramount.
I have trained in many areas including CBT, ACT, DBT, Somatic Therapy, and EMDR. I am also a trained end-of-life doula and in 2021 I will be training as a psychedelic therapist.
I have lived-experience of medical PTSD and identify as queer and non-monogamous. I am a supporter of LGBTIQ+ rights, I am sex positive, non judgmental, and have a good understanding of risk-aware consensual kink, ethical non-monogamy, and polyamory.

“Fenella combines high ethical standards and evidential rigour to her work with a strong client centred ethos that allows her to be responsive to individual client needs in their particular situation. She delivered the trauma recovery group program (Right Now) using trauma informed yoga and other evidence based somatic and mindfulness approaches for women affected by family violence. I found Fenella to be very approachable and warm and loved being a part of the group.” – Client
