Eleanor Franklin (MBACP, Ad Dip Integrative Counselling)
Learn to love your demons!
I offer an alternative to CBT that focuses not on controlling our thoughts but accepting them and learning to respond in a more positive and flexible way. I combine a deep therapeutic listening with a range of exercises and techniques to help you build a bespoke tool kit that you can take into the world and start using straight away.
I offer both counselling on an ongoing basis and also a ‘super charged’ 4 session package, that uses the methods described above to help you respond more effectively to whatever’s happening in your life.
Sessions cost £40 per hour or £150 for the 4 session package. Great concessionary rates are available too – I believe counselling should be accessible to all. Fortnightly sessions are also an option for those who can’t commit to a weekly slot.
I trained as an Integrative therapist at the Iron Mill institute in Exeter, which combines therapeutic models such as Person-centred, Gestalt and Existential frameworks to enable the counsellor to work creatively and flexibly in sessions. I have since developed an interest in therapies such as Focusing, Mindfulness and Acceptance Commitment Therapy and am undertaking further training in these modalities.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have always been passionate about empowering people to explore their potential, and worked for years in the education system. I've been a qualified counsellor for four years and have worked with people from all walks of life. As a member of the BACP I believe in and adhere to their code of ethics and standards.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
