Fran Mullins BA Hons, Adv Dip, MBACP
Hello, and welcome to my page. My name is Fran and I am an integrative counsellor with experience working in a variety of voluntary sector organisations and in the NHS, as well as in private practice.
I work on the basis that it is a trusting, open relationship between counsellor and client that is the key to effective therapy, enabling a person's issues and difficulties to be explored and examined, and that it is this process of exploration that can provide renewed hope, understanding, empowerment and choices.
Counselling sessions are carried out on a regular basis (usually weekly) and provide a safe, confidential, non judgmental space for us to work. I see people for long and short term therapy, but the majority of my clients feel ready to finish within 8-12 sessions.
