About me

My name is Fran Hicks and I am an experienced female counsellor working from my home just outside a small village four miles from Hereford and ten miles from Ledbury. The location and the room that I use are warm, private and comfortable with ample off road parking.

I work from a person centred approach but use elements that are individual and appropriate to fit with the client's needs and issues. A good relationship  between counsellor and yourself is in my view essential to the success of therapy.  Vital to establishing a positive therapeutic relationship is the development of trust and respect. To achieve this I work from a non-judgemental point of view allowing  you  the freedom to explore any issues that you  may wish to bring to counselling. I work with people of all ages and have considerable experience working with Children and Young People. I work both short term and open ended.

I gained my Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy in June 2003 and I am a registered member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists as well as a Children and Young People Member . Since gaining my Diploma I have had training  in many aspects of issues that may affect a person including  bereavement, self harm, eating disorders,  relationships, separation/divorce, abuse, drugs, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety/depression, low self esteem, bullying and other issues connecting to school/education.

Theories that I have trained in since 2003 include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focus Brief Therapy as well as otaining my British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Certificate of Proficiency.

If you are considering counselling and are interested please telephone or email me for a free initial consultation. My contact details are 01432 850066, 07776188610 or email fran@hal.uk.com. and I look forward to hearing from you.
